Each time (that) you exercise, you get a little stronger.

This is a sentence from Longman Dictionary. You exercise is obviously a finite clause, so I guess each time here is a conjunction. Is this correct?

My second questions is about that. In Each time that you exercise, what type of clause does that introduce? or why are we using that?

Each time (that) you exercise, you get a little stronger.

"Each time" is a noun phrase headed by the noun "time", with "each" as determiner. "That" is a subordinator introducing a declarative content clause functioning as complement of "time".

The whole noun phrase "each time that you exercise" is a temporal adjunct of frequency.
