This is a question that I hear frequently. And the answer is, it depends on what your goals are. If you are interested in maintaining health and improving fitness, I recommend 45-60 minutes/workout 5-6x/week. I’d split those workouts between cardio and strength training sessions, and include a yoga or stretching session.
For those seeking to lose weight, I’d still recommend 3x/week of strength training, but I’d increase the cardio exercise to 5x a week. Remember that the greatest growth is during rest, so don’t skip a rest day.
