How Often to Exercise: Frequency of Training

Frequency of Exercise

How Often to Exercise?

How frequently you should exercise is determined by a number of fitness and health factors, like: age, health condition and fitness-level. The fitter and healthier you are, and the more ambitious your performance goals, the more often you can workout. Whereas, if you are pregnant or a new Mom, or are convalescing after an operation, or nursing a strain, or seriously obese and unsteady on your feet, you should exercise less often at a lower intensity-level.

How Often to Train to Improve Basic Fitness

For the "average" healthy individual, 2 workouts per week (about 30 minutes each) is sufficient to maintain basic fitness and health, but 3-5 workouts per week is necessary to raise fitness levels.

How Often to Workout to Lose Weight

If you want to lose weight, then daily 30 minute workouts (with one exercise-free day, per week) are the ideal exercise frequency. The best type of fat-burning exercise is aerobic, although a combination of aerobics and strength-training (the latter to improve muscle/fat ratio) is ideal for weight loss.

How Often to Exercise to Reduce Risk of Disease

To help prevent the risk of diseases such as like heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer and high blood pressure (hypertension), doctors now recommend 30 minutes of moderate activity on most days. In addition, adopting a more active lifestyle, with more physical activity also helps to protect the cardio-respiratory and immune systems. The American College of Sports Medicine recommends 3-5 days a week for most cardiovascular programs.

Advice About Cardio Exercise Recovery

To prevent an injury and to promote adequate bone and joint stress recovery, people who are very out of shape (and/or overweight) and doing weight-bearing cardiovascular exercise such as an aerobics class or jogging, should adopt a more gradual cardio-training program, which allows 36-48 hours recovery time between workouts.
