    I work out 6 days a week with actual work outs, rest on Saturday (rest includes mowing the backyard, weedeating, etc)

    7 days a week on a good week... 5 days on a bad week.... Well, I count it as 5 if I miss two days of cardio, but I still do some type of workout a min of 6 days a week. I am planning to add a second workout to my days. I've been slacking the past two weeks. Gotta get my butt in gear! It isn't going to lose itself!

    I have every Friday off, unless its a Sunday Race and I switch to Saturday. And have another day off if I feel I need when energy levels are low

    I used to workout 7 days a week for 60 mins. Then I ended up with injuries from pushing my body too hard and not allowing it to rest. I switched to 5 days a week/60 mins. Now that I am in maintenance, I only go 2-3 times a week for 60 mins each time. I just came off an entire month off from ALL working out to allow illness and injury to completely heal. I'm easing back into it and only going 1-2 days/60 mins until I get my stamina back up.

    Our bodies need a rest day, so I would definitely recommended taking at least 1-2 days off during the week.

    I workout 6 days a week. Even on my "rest" day, I still get in some exercises. I am doing 30 DS right now, so I am working out everyday at this point.

    Right now everyday, but once I finish 30D Shred I will be back to 3 to 5 times a week allowing my body time to heal andmuscles to relax so that progress is always being made with each workout. :)

    I'm just getting started with exercise, and my doc said work out more days of the week than not. So that means at least 4 days a week of cardio. On the days I don't do cardio, I usually do some type of strength training with small weights. I've been averaging 2 to 3 lbs. weight loss a week. I also stay under my calorie goals most days and usually eat back at least some of those exercise calories.

    I workout every day.
    I do cardio kickboxing + a kickboxing training class 5 days a week + the gym
    then the other 2 days... I do the gym + something else (sometimes the JMs 30DS)
    and I'm always walking.
    every once in a while I add in the moutain stairs (but due to the weather change it's a little hard)
    If I don't workout 7 days a week I feel guilty :grumble:

    Usually 4-5 days/week, 3 days of elliptical and 1 of treadmill. Sometimes 6 if I can coax myself onto the treadmill Saturday AND Sunday.

    Days that I go over my calories are almost always workout days tho, lol.

    I'm working gout 6 out of 7 days for a month long challenge right now, but when I'm out of this competitive mode I'm going back to having 2-3 rest days a week. It's important to lgive your body a break so taking weekends off (while still walking the dog and running errands) will be perfect.

    Today was my first "official" day at the gym. My trainer told me to do resistance training 3 days a week, never back to back, and do 20-20 minutes of cardio ATLEAST 6 days a week, preferably 7. He told me I should be in the gym every day (that being because the gym is where I chose to do my workouts, not because a person HAS to go to the gym). So today I did resistance and cardio, tomorrow just cardio, Sunday both, Monday cardio, Tuesday both, etc. and so on.

    4-5 times a week I do an exercise video for about 35 mins. I also incorperate some core training with my exercise ball and exercises with 20lbs weights. That's about all I care to do! Not a big fan or working out, but I make myself do it anyways.

    Now that i'm back on my grind i'm in the gym 5-6 days a week. At first i would listen to people that would say..."oh don't over do it, and burn yourself out, if you do you will give up" *blank stare* :indifferent: only thing that did to me was make me lazy and slack off because i didn't want to "burn out" yeah right....any excuse not to go....i had to put in my mind that it is a part of my daily things to get up, go to work in order to pay bills...well now i know i have to get up and workout also in order to stay alive and healthy. 7 days a week do something active no less than 30 minutes a day, which i do. I kick it in the gym no less than 60 minutes when i'm there...good hard workout days 90 minutes. Good Luck~Let's Go!
