CAN YOU OVER EXERCISE? TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING?
A recent study at the University of Alabama with older women concluded that the exercise sweet spot is about 40 minutes of cardio twice week and a full body strength workout on 2 alternate days.
The group that exercised more, up to 6 times a week did not achieve better results, and reported less energy for daily activities. So more is not always better!
So many of my clients ask me how much exercise should they do to get the best results.
Many of my clients have gotten effective and sustainable results by exercising 3-5 days a week. They say mixing up their routine also helps them stay on track so they look forward to exercising instead of dreading it. I always say “exercise should be a pleasure not a chore. Getting fit shouldn’t feel like getting your teeth drilled.”
There are those days when you body tells you to take a rest. If you aren’t feeling well or didn’t get enough sleep the night before, you might be better off doing a lighter workout or skipping exercise that day.
