    Hi Fitness forum!


    I have just recently started back at the gym and I am loving it! I am determined to lose a little weight and tighten up my body :mamoru:


    I am doing lots of cardio and weights classes. My question is, how long should I wait between sessions. My muscles are sore at the moment from a weights class I did yesterday afternoon, should I wait a day or two before I work out again??

    those weights probably aren't heavy enough to cause need for any serious recovery period (if you're lifting heavy then you should wait a minimum of 48 hours before working the same muscles, some people prefer longer though), so theoretically you could do it every day if you want....

    But if it gets your heart rate up really high I would suggest doing it every other day, and on days between maybe do some light cardio on an elliptical or something so you aren't overworking yourself

    I want to lose weight. Would doing cardio sessions everyday, help me get faster results? Or should I maybe do cardio every second day?

    I wouldn't know... but a lot of people here like to do intense cardio every other day, and on the days inbetween the intense sessions, they'll do some light stuff for longer periods of time.
