After exercising about nine hours a week combining jogging, strength training, yoga and Pilates, then trying to squeeze in swimming, ballet ,and biking from time to time, it seems to me that you are right on track!

Have fun with it!

It sounds like a good routine to me. I love Bodypump class. It is so good for you. I wish I could do it 3x a week but I am lucky to go 1-2 times a week.

Listen to your body. If you start to feel real pain then slow down but if you are feeling mildly sore then that should subside soon.

For six weeks I have been doing yoga every morning and some form of cardio or strength training five nights a week and I believe that yoga enhances both my cardio and strength training. The results have really been exciting. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I think that you are doing just fine. You are doing a good all over body workout. Your body will thank you for this.

Hi,

I think you're OK. Yoga is not as much a strength exercise as it is for flexibility. While you are supporting your weight, it probably is not so much to overload your muscles to promote strength training.

Enjoy!

Well, it is probably best to ease back in to it. Maybe limit yourself to 3-4 days a week for the next 4 weeks or so and then add more days. Assuming the workouts you are doing now are all intense. If some of them are not very strenuous, you can probably do more than what I mentioned previously.

I was way into it before the summer, 5-6 days/week but I have been struggling since then. I've probably spent 2-3 months on my butt. Before that I was very good at cardio, so-so with weights.

I am doing a 1 hr body pump class at my gym on Monday and Wednesday, and a 45-50 min Yoga on Tuesday and Thursday, just cardio on friday/saturday. Am I over working my arms with this routine? I'm thinking in terms of downward dogs and things like that. Is it too much on my muscles or is Yoga good for in between the body pump?
