    I'm just wondering in general how often people exercise. At the moment I do:

    Monday: gym 40 minutes
    Tuesday: gym 40 minutes
    Wednesday: off
    Thursday: gym 1 hour
    Friday: gym 30 minutes. Dance class 1 hour.
    Saturday: usually off but thinking of including something here
    Sunday: off

    How does that look? Would adding on a Saturday be a good idea? I'm also slowly increasing my Monday and Tuesday gym sessions.

    What does everyone else do?

    Monday - off
    Tuesday - Gym, 1 hour 15 (55 mins cardio, 15 weights)
    Wednesday - Zumba, 1 hour
    Thursday - Gym, 1 hour 15 (55 mins cardio, 15 weights)
    Friday - Off
    Saturday or Sunday - Gym, 1 hour 15 (55 mins cardio, 15 weights)

    Sometimes I swim for an hour at the weekend instead. That is an ideal week. With work it isnt always doable and I don't beat myself up if something gets in the way, just go as much as I can.

    I swim before work mon-fri. I do weight training Monday evening, body pump Wednesday evening & Saturday morning and I cycle on Saturday and Sunday. I find it okay not to have a rest day as long as I'm mixing and matching the excercise sessions, i.e. at least one day off between weights. Aerobic stuff can be done every day but my muscles need 48 hours recovery after weight training otherwise I lose strength rather than gaining.

    I try and exercise about an hour a day between walking my dogs, going on the stationary bike and will be starting jogging in the new year. If the weather is bad I don't get out and I miss it. It very quickly becomes part of your life.
