Cardiovascular exercise and strength training both play a significant role in focusing on weight reduction and expanding muscle size. Finding the correct parity of the two will rely upon your individual objectives, how rapidly you need to accomplish them, and the measure of time you can focus on working out.
- Stick to two to three days of cardio per week. Focus on shorter High-Intensity Interval Training s/a 25mins.
- 2 to 3 days per week of strength training (full-body each session) for beginners
- 3 to 4 days per week of strength training (split up workout by body part or upper/lower body) for intermediates
- 4 to 5 days per week of strength training (an advanced exerciser might structure their week with three days on, one day off) for advanced.
