    This is about the word “exercise”. I’m very confused about its usages because sometimes it is used as a “countable noun” and sometimes as an “uncountable noun” when referring to health. The below examples are from a dictionary

    You can do exercises to strengthen your stomach muscles.
    Working in an office, I don’t get much exercise.

    So can you please help me to learn how to use it as a “countable and uncountable noun?” I would appreciate if you could explain using some examples so that I can understand better.

    Thank you
