how much is too much exercise?

Postby bear » Sat Sep 08, 2007 10:27 pm

Just wondering how much is too much exercise? I jumped on the scales today and gained a kilo from last week :oops: ( and it ain't muscle!!!) I know it's because my eating has been out of control for the past 8 weeks ( I got so close to my goal weight, half a kilo, and gave up and ate and have been since) so no excuses!!
I started a exercise regime of getting up early and walking for an hour every day then I'd go to the Gym and do 1 or 2 classes ( pump,cardio and abs or cycle). I also got a trainer to flog me on fridays (starts this week). Do you think that is too much? What does everyone else do?

doesnt sound like too much to me bear. ive aske dthat question on adros forum before and told him i do an hour a day and he said if time permits than to raise the bar and do any extra hour a day if possible. due to having a toddler running around though i find i can manage with an hour a day sometimes more depending on the weather.

The best advice I can give is to listen to your body. Your body will let you know whether you are pushing yourself to hard or not :D .
Start weight - 77kgs
Goal weight - 53kgs
Current Weight - 50.1kgs

No more weighing, no more scales. My measurement is my success at health. It's an investment I make every single day. My priority: be healthy!

I don't think that's too much (1 hour walk + 1 hour class per day). That's about what I do, but my walking is around uni and to the train station and stuff. I quite often do a 1 hour class in the morning and walk 30 mins in the afternoon. I think that's perfectly acceptable, bear :)
