HOW MANY DAYS A WEEK SHOULD I WORKOUT? (question & answer)

19 Sep

There are many theories on this topic, I will be covering my own personal opinion that I adopted from the Crossfit methodology. Most people break their workouts into sessions per week. Instead try looking at things from a monthly perspective.

  • ….Yeah but how many days a week?

3 days on 1 day off seems to work really well, this turns out to be about 20 workouts a month.  If you are putting yourself through tough workouts every time, you will begin to plateau around the third day. Listen to your body; I often take 2 or more days off if I am very beat up from the previous workouts. Remember it’s all about performance; it makes no sense to go to the gym if you’re sore and tired you’re better off resting and hitting it tomorrow when you can actually accomplishing something.

NOTE:

You have 20 workouts with this method, what are you going to do with it? Have a goal in mind that you are slowly but surely going to accomplish at the end of the month. This topic will be covered in depth soon.
