    Good answer! My lazy week is usually 3 days (but extra hard on the days that I work out).

    5-6

    Good answer Full Intense, I got a chuckle out of that on. I presently workout 5 days a week. I get my children every other weekend so I useually skip the Sat workout when I have them. It's useually just a fun day anyway, the day I go into the gym and workout whatever needs it the most, no plans, just go to the gym and lift. God I love those days more than any other. It can put a weekly change in the routine that I look forward to throughout the week.
    Later,
    Tobey

    Mentally I,m always lifting !!

    Physically 3-4 times a week Cardio when I,m feeling FAT (I know its shameful but I have no planned cv really)

    Martial Arts 1-2 a week swimming once a week cycling around 60 miles a week.And having a small child running around every weekend is the best cardio you could ever do Right Tobey??? LOL

    Kids

    Heck Billy,
    Why do you think I had to take up jogging as a hobbie?
    Dam, My stamina just ain't what it use to be .If I could bottle up a third of Joshua and Tabatha's energy,(my kids) I could make a fortune selling the stuff.

    I agree with the 4-day routine for gaining that extra mass and strength required to push you through. I don't usually add any more than that unless its time to start walking around without a shirt. Then I might stick some form of cardio in there. I used to workout 5-6 days a week, but after a while I found that I wasn't getting any stronger, just more worn out. I also thought that it played havoc on my immune system. I was always catching colds and such. Although that could probably have been remedied with a change in diet and extra sleep. When I'm on any type of gear though, it’s a different story. It seems like I could work out 7 days a week and keep growing.

    It doesn't mean I’m going to though. Heh, heh

    I lift 4 days a week and do cardio 2-3 times a week on it's own day so not to impact my lifting days.

    4 days. I'd like to do only 3 but....my right shoulder is pretty fucked up, so I work my shoulder/s out on it's own day so they get the special attention they (the right one) need.

    Yeah, 3 times for me in general per week. I would love to train at least 4-5 times per week, but as a natural- "don´t wanna take AAS"- guy that amount of training days, takes not only a lot of time but also a lot of supplements, and those costs a lot o´money over here.

    And money is not one of the things I have plenty of right now...


    But, on a good week I train 4 times.
    On a less good week, I lower myself to a pathetic 2 times/week...

    Everything gets hit each day, 2 REAL hours in the gym. I found this works best for me. I get a good rest and my strenght is always up.

    Well, for me the ideal is five times a week.

    I travel quite alot with work though, so I'm trying to incorporate early morning workouts....really early, like 5.30!! God, it's hard to motivate yourself at that time of the morning/ night! What's the prefered workout time for the rest of you, and have you got any tips to motivate an sleepy early starter?

    this may sound weird to you guys but i train 2 times a week total body workout doing only basic movements.

    Bench press
    dips
    military press
    chin ups
    rows
    squats
    ez curls

    all that for 2 sets taken to failure is all i need, then i take 3-4 days off and i hit the gym again.

    My shape has changed and i got a lot stronger.

    I didnt lose any size in fact i gain some.

    And all that training takes me about 40 minutes to complete.

    I usually work out 5 days, but since I'm entering a show in June, I'm starting to go like 7 days to get in some of the cardio I was too tired to do during the week, and because to stop myself from going out and drinking, I'll go to the gym instead.
