Workout: 2x vs 3x

How many times should you work out a week? I’ve seen so many differing opinions on this, so I’ll share my experience.

I had gotten into the 2x weekly routine. Hard workout, ache and creak until the next. Of course, the great team at Precision Athlete has always encouraged me to do recovery workouts (basically, some movement) on the alternate days. But have I listened…? Not enough.

Last week I made a jump to 3 workouts, and I’m on my 2nd of 3 this week. I have to say that I feel great. Overall solid, and no aches and pains that come with the hard workout followed by several days off.

I heard Martha Stewart — yes, I listen — say that she works out an hour every day, and at the time I thought, “She’s crazy.” But I get it now: MOVE EVERY DAY. It pays off.
