Sports make your life easier, it helps you win at life, it makes you feel strong, and (!) the most important one: it makes you happy! With all these positive outcomes you could think that working out to the max means maximum results, but is that really the case? In today’s all new blog post I talk about the best number of trainings per week, when wanting your best body for a lifetime!
The workout benefits as mentioned above are only a few of the million reasons to hit the gym. Simply put, exercise makes for a more awesome life. But when is enough really enough? And – maybe even more important – when do you overdo this? After receiving many questions from you girls about “how often to workout”, I thought it deserves some attention on the blog! Let me share my opinion with you, as well as my personal weekly workout routine.
When it comes to a few major workout health benefits, it doesn’t really matter how often you train, as long as you get at least a total of 2.5 hours of physical activity each week. That’s because the total amount, type, and intensity of activity is way more important for your body than frequency. Unfortunately this does not mean that you can just work out for 2.5 hours and then be done with it for the rest of the week. Let me tell you why.
While fewer, longer training sessions might lower your cardiovascular risk factors, they won’t necessarily help you to get your bikini body ready for summer. In short: if you can’t make it to the gym today, it’s not that big of a deal and you can just add some extra minutes to your tomorrow workout. Still, exercising more frequently (4-5 times a week) for shorter periods is more ideal and has my preference.
