How often should we exercise?

How many times a week should I exercise? There is no simple answer to this question. Finding a time for a workout can be often difficult for many people as there are so many other things that require your time and attention – work, family, pets, house etc, so everyone can invest different time into their exercise routine. And most importantly everyone has different goals, which also impacts what kind of exercise do we choose.

Some people say that they do not have enough time to exercise. Really? You might not have as much time as you wish you had, or maybe you cannot workout as often as your neighbour does, but that is ok. There is no comparison!

Is it worth exercising just once a week? Something better than nothing! If you can only exercise once or twice a week it is important that you do a whole-body workout rather than focusing on one muscle group. And remember that it is not only the quantity that matters, the quality of the exercise is very important. It is crucial to perform each exercise correctly.

If you can workout just once a week, it’s important to be realistic. You may not be able to see the results you were hoping for as fast as you wish to. But you shouldn’t give up on the idea of working out altogether!
