    Hi can you excersise to much? I started doing 50 mins fitness DVD 30 days shred and rosemary connellys for half an hour. 30 mi wii fit and 45 min at the gym a day.

    Just listen to your body - muscle ache is ok generally across your body but localised pain is not. Make sure you have a rest day a week and really rest! I run 3 times a week and do a conditioning or strength class per week. I'll try fit in a swim or a walk and have one full rest day.

    Don't forget you need to fuel your recovery! Plenty of protein!

    It doesn't sound like your overdoing it too much. The real danger is when it turns into exercise bulimia, you if you exercise for hours on end you need to more food that your burning from the exercise alone (because of the baseline calories your body burns to function at rest). I'm not saying to stuff your face, but just be mindful of the fact that you want to lose fat and gain muscle, so if you see an increase in the numbers on the scale from the high protein, with all that exercise, don't panic, use body measurments instead for a few weeks.
