Discussing :: How Often Should I Exercise?

People often email me asking how many days per week should they workout. For the average person wanting to lose weight and focus on fat loss, the answer is simple. They will get fantastic results by training hard only three days per week. Now for the average person, that should be manageable. And yes, all three of those workouts should be done in less than an hour. Research shows that 20-30 minutes of interval training is more effective than 40 minutes of slow cardio for weight loss. Combine the intervals with 20-30 minutes of strength training. Do that 3 days per week, and pow, you'll lose fat fast. (With good nutrition too, of course!) On off... read full article


How Often Should I Exercise?

great information


Ideally you should exercise daily for minimum of half hour. And the best way to lose fat is to eat less!


Good info, Im going 4 times a week and still struggling to loose the small layer of belly fat. Although my missus says its just skin


I read that every mammal has approximately 800 million heartbeats before they die. I'm going to sit very still and try not to raise mine. Pass a beer someone...


Any exercise is better than none! Ideally intense (but consult your doctor blah blah if you haven't been doing exercise for ages!). It could be just 15mins of hard exercise 3 times a week and then choosing to walk around your office instead of using the phone to contact colleagues. Use the stairs over the lift, drink water over coffee. There is heaps you can do :). Pedometers can be a fun way to help compete against yourself - they measure how many steps you take.


Ive been told that you should exercise for at least 30 mins a day every single day... i wonder how many people can actually commit to that??!?


All the exercise obsessed people....maybe not the rest of us. I do actually get about 20 mins a day.


This is very similar to what I am currently doing.


I do A LOT of walking...but in saying that, I take the lifts going up three floors (sad i know). I have been told that running is the best way to lose all over weight. I am not a fan of running, I would rather go on hour length walks then do that! Also I hate running machines, you run a shit load, but don't get anywhere?! (AKA...there is no amazing scenery blahblah). After reading that 3days a week with a good diet promotes weight loss, this has given me HOPE! I have a gym in the apartment..probably about time I start using it.


Guys - it's a lifestyle and lifelong commitment thing. Lay off shit food, make sure you walk whenever possible and FFS WALK up 3 flights of stairs. The killer is incremental weight gain - half a Kg per year means by the time you're 50 you've added 25Kgs to what you weigh at 25 years old. Is that what you want?
