What's too much exercise?
Thursday, October 25, 2012
My return to regular workouts has been great. I have found the I look forward to, if not love, going to the gym. However, I am wondering, how much is too much?
I enjoy planning my workouts using sparkpeople and other linked sites. It's amazing how much I am learning about interval, varieties or workouts, supersets, and the list goes on. Problem is I want to try them all.
Currently, I do minimum 12 sets/3 reps of 15 strength training 5 days a week (the more accurate number is 20 sets on those days). Also, I like to do them as supersets so there is a cardio component to it. I also do 60 minutes of cardio interval 3 days a week. Then my weekend/rest days roll around and I plan to relax and hang around, yet I always end up at the gym.
What are your workout routines like? What do you think is too much?
