Ask the Trainer: Working Out Too Much?

By: Chad Ruf, Director of Personal Training

Question: How do I know if I'm working out too much? I do strength and conditioning M/W/F and cardio boot camps Tu/Th.

 

Answer: I think this is a great workout routine as you are switching up weights with cardio on opposite days. Assuming you are taking the weekends off, you are right on track. If you are not taking the weekends off, try taking Wednesday off and working out on Saturday. You would essentially be mixing your days up a bit and getting a break in the middle of the week. You will know you are working out too hard when you are no longer seeing results.
