Cardio vs Weight Training Regiment



Recommended Posts

I am looking for guidance on the best workout routine with my busy schedule now that school is back in session for my kids and I am also going back to school at night to get my degree and I work 50 hours a week. I have equipment in my home for both cardio (bike and elliptical) and weight training (bowflex), but I'm not sure the best frequency for doing both independently and/or simultaneously. Right now, I've been doing the cardio every day and then every 2nd or 3rd day I am using the bowflex for strength training.

I am 5 months post-op and I have lost a total of 100 lbs since September of 2018.

Thoughts?

you can do cardio every day. With strength training, you're not supposed to exercise the same group of muscles two days in a row, but if you want to do it every day, you can do something like lower body one day, and upper body the next. But your routine of doing cardio every day and strength training every 2-3 days sounds fine.
