For many the task of working out is one that helps them to realize the stress and tension that they are carrying around with them everyday. It is their time to do something that is just for them. And for that reason, they often want to workout more than just a few days per week.
“Me time” is an important element that we have heard about more and more with the pandemic taking over the globe. This is the time that you devote to yourself and take care of your own needs. For those who find that their workouts are the time to devote to themselves, then they are already on a great road of being fit. However, is it dangerous to workout 7 days a week?
When you are given a workout guide from a professional, they often have exercises listed for three to four days per week, with a rest period. This is one aspect that many people point out when they wonder about working out every day of the week. The answer to this question may surprise you!
So, it is okay to workout 7 days a week? This truly depends upon what type of workouts that you are doing. For example, if you are bodybuilding and going at strength training 7 days a week, you are not giving your muscles a rest day to build up. When this is the case, you do risk having an injury because you are pushing your body so hard.
With this being said, it is okay to workout 7 days a week, if you do this smartly. You can have whatever type of workout routine that you want, but there should be some days that are a bit lighter and less intense than others. If you do this, while you may still be active, it does allow your muscles and body the time it needs to regroup and recharge. The key to working out 7 days a week also means that you should focus on different areas of your body everyday. For example, leg day, arm day, core day and so forth. It just allows for a bit more guidance during this workouts and keeps you on a schedule.
When it comes to seeing results after working out 7 days a week, the results can be seen in different times with different people. Probably within two weeks or so, you are going to find that you have more energy and just feel better than what you did.
There are those who swear they see some weight loss results after only two to three weeks as well. It all truly depends upon what type of workouts you are doing. The general idea is that after doing a workout for a month, you will see some results. You may notice that you feel stronger, you may see that your midsection is starting to look thinner, that your clothes are fitting differently, and the like. Keep in mind that the first month is often the hardest for anyone entering into a workout program as it takes dedication and then remembering that results are not overnight, even if you workout 7 days a week.
Before you start a 7 day a week workout, you may want to work yourself up to this point, as you are going to find that going at this hard from the get go can make you feel a bit rundown and sore. This can result in you no longer wanting to workout!
