I like to do about a 50 min – 60 min workout in the afternoon. However, if you’re short on time of just want a short workout, then just do the 30 min or 20 min workout.
As long as you try to commit to at least 30 minutes a day, 5 times a week, with a combination of cardio and resistance, you’re on the right track. 🙂
Just a heads up on the structure of my workouts – Monday, Wednesday and Friday are resistance-based workouts, usually with cardio in the workouts as well. With Tuesdays and Thursdays workouts, they are purely cardio-based.
This is a useful structure, as you know each day what kind of workout you need to do.
Occasionally, I do a stretching or pilates session on the weekend. And I tend to do additional stretches after each workout.
Mix it up, do the days and times that best fit into your schedule.
And I’ll be keeping you posted on what I do each day for my workouts, so if you’re not sure what workouts you want to do, just do the ones I post for each day. 🙂
