    I'm rebuilding right now so I presently run every day and twice a day on 5 days. Most is really low intensity so recovery is quick.

    5-6 days a week... one 3 to 5 mile jog, one run with sprint intervals for about 30 minutes, 2 or 3 days of some type of interval training that includes burpees, jump squats, pushups, lunge jumps or maybe an insanity cardio workout or step aerobics, whatever i feel like that day... usually they are around 45 minutes to an hour each. 2 to 3 of those days I will also throw in some free weights and machine weights plus pull ups.

    If i feel extra tired or do a lot of yard work like chop firewood, i will skip exercise for that day. I do a lot of hikes around the yard on days when i work from home. My backyard is a mountain with tons of giant boulders.

    Usually 5-6 days a week. 3 weights, 2-3 cardio/abs days.

    Me too. Seems about right for my goal of gaining a little muscle bulk while maintaining my weight range. It's a slow process but it's working for me.

    4 or 5. 4 days lifting and I might go in on the 5th for 30 minutes of cardio. Or I might not because I hate it.

    Same here!

    Roughly 3-4 days of heavy lifting, and I do about 15 additional minutes of HIIT on a couple of those days. I also make sure to get in 10,000 steps per day from my daily activities.

    All of them! I go to the gym 3 days a week. Arms, legs, core. I run twice a week and do an exercise dvd every day. At the moment I alternate between Carmen Electra's fit to strip dvd and The surfer girl dvd (a cheapie but awesome one I picked up at a garage sale)

    The gym I use is limited to a smith machine and some free weights and a lat pulldown machine. I try to weight train at least 3 times a week focusing on one body part per session (lower body, chest or back). I run 1 mile to warm up my body. I also try to run a 5k each week for cardio and every Saturday I go to a bigger gym where I do 2 hours of cardio classes. I will probably replace the 5k with some speed interval training to help build up my stamina and endurance in running. Or add another day of cardio depending on how my body is feeling. I need to change my focus to include more abs though. I'm feeling rather "pouchy" in the stomach area so want to focus on the ab muscles again to help strengthen them.
