How many days a week do you exercise/workout?

Just wondering what everybody's routines are like and how many days a week you exercise/workout? I was aiming for 6 out the 7days a week but some days I'm just too busy so iv managed 5days out of 7 so far. ?

    My goal is every day. I mix it up a fair bit (tennis, strength training, running, cycling, brisk walks), so I'm at less risk of an overuse injury.

    On non-event weeks: 6 days (5 lifting, a couple cardio sessions, 1 hot yoga).
    Event weeks: 3-4 days plus the event (usually, 3 lifting, the event, then yoga)

    6 or 7 unless life/work gets in the way.
    Alternating days strength training and cycling (or indoor cardio) mostly but it varies.

    But hope people don't try to go straight from zero to lots!

    I run 3 days a week, and on the other days I just make sure I get my minimum 10k steps in for my Fitbit. When the weather gets a bit better i'll start getting out on the bike a bit too.

    At least 5 but I aim for 6.

    Currently I am in a running clinic, training for a few runs this year so that's my focus and I make sure I get those 3 runs in every week. I aim for 2-3 days of cross-training/cross fit of some kind. Sundays I lift heavy, Tuesday/Thursday I either do cross fit or strength training. I also row on Tuesdays to help with running. But I've built up to that over 3 years now, I didn't just jump into that. It takes time to build up, and a lot out of my free time but I want it so it's what I'm willing to do to get where I want to be.

    I'm just getting back into it, but I'm at 5 days a week. It's a realistic number for me.

    I now only walk 3-4x a week. I was getting burned out doing the walking 5-6x week.I can manage 3x week without stress.

    I exercise 7 days a week. I do many different activities and they vary in intensity. I typically do no less than 5 days of intense exercise and the rest of the week is pretty mild (yoga, walking). I do like to move everyday though!

    It is easier for me to force myself to do something every single day than it is to have breaks. I am not good at allowing myself breaks, I will fall off the wagon.

    7 days. I am on a streak. I've been to the gym every day since 2/2/15. Plus I walk most days.

    I am following a 3/week lifting program and I supplement with an hour of brisk walking 1-3 times as well. Daylight savings has opened my evening options up immensely!
