How Often Should I Work Out/Lift Weights?

According to the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), your clients should exercise 20 to 60 minutes, three to five days a week for health/fitness promotion . Exercising only three days a week may be enough for previously sedentary clients to improve their fitness, but it will take more exercise to see further improvements. Improvements in aerobic power (VO2 max), cholesterol levels, body composition and cardiovascular health are all augmented the more often you exercise . However, it is important that your clients do not progress too soon or exercise excessively, since both these behaviors can lead to overuse injuries.
