Working out to extremes doesn’t always mean a little waist. Per Tamir of NY T.S. Fitness, excessive exercise will “…increase stress hormones in the body which makes it harder to lose fat…” (1). Weight training three to four days a week is perfectly fine, any more than that, is unnessessary. Thirty minutes of high-intensity cardio, three times a week is just right. You can do cardio an hour every day, just make sure some days are easy-to-do cardiovascular exercises, while the other cardio workouts make you sweat like crazy, and are so miserable you countdown the minutes until it’s over.
