How Much Should I Workout?

This is a question that many people have asked, and the answer, unfortunately, is not one size fits all.  Figuring out how much you should workout can be confusing. You may have heard that you should do a minimum of three days per week, but is that enough? And what about those people who seem to work out all the time – are they doing too much? How do you know what’s right for you? The amount of exercise you need depends on your goals, health, age, and other individual factors. However, we can provide some general guidelines to help you find the proper workout routine for you. 

First, consult with your doctor to ensure that any type of exercise program is safe for you. Once you have the all-clear from your physician, start by figuring out how much time you have each week to devote to working out. Break down those hours into smaller chunks and decide what types of exercises you would like to do during that time. The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) has some guidelines to help you out. They recommend at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise each week or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity each week to maintain good health. If you’re looking to improve your fitness level, increase that amount to 300 minutes per week. That might sound like a lot, but it breaks down to about 30 minutes five times a week. At TriForce, our workouts are programmed so that you are getting a combination of strength, skills, mobility, and high-intensity intervals. We program with progressions in mind so that members can work out daily without getting burned out or injured. 

If you’re just starting, we have athletes aim for that minimum of 3 workouts per week and gradually increase the intensity and duration as your body gets stronger. And remember to always listen to your body – if something feels off, it is ok to talk with your coach or schedule to see our physical therapist to address any pains or imbalances you notice. Remember that it takes time to see results, so be patient and consistent with your routine. And most importantly, have fun!

If you’re looking for guidance on where to start, we recommend checking out our beginner’s guide to working out and scheduling an athlete check-in for help with setting up goals. And as always, if you have any questions or need help getting started, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’re happy to help!
