How often should I get my Syrian hamster out for exercise?

My hamster is around 8 months old and he’s mostly asleep during the day (obviously). He does get up for an hour or two every few hours to eat and pee (among other things lol).

I was just wondering if I should get him out in his ball every day? Currently I get him out around 5 times a week, for 30-35 minutes in the ball. Is this enough or not?
Also, should I wake him up to go in or just leave it if he’s sleeping?
