Fewer, Longer Workouts Vs. Shorter, More Frequent Training
Exercising every day is ideal, but there is new evidence that the “weekend warrior” approach to exercise still affords you some important benefits.
You know you should exercise regularly. Maybe your doctor has recommended at least 30 to 40 minutes a day of brisk walking with some strength training mixed in. But what if your schedule, your body, or your best intentions just aren’t getting you to the gym every day? Can you make up the difference with a couple of longer workouts on the weekends? Sort of.
