How Many Times Do You Work Out on the Weekend?

I try to get in at least one good workout every weekend, and if that isn't possible, I take a long walk or get active some other way. How about you: do you commit to working out on the weekends?

i'm actually really good at maintaining my routine on the weekend. i usually work out for 45 minutes to an hour on the weekend days but at least i go :) the way that i remember to go is that i have a separate membership at a gym in NJ where my mom lives and i go on the weekends. if i don't go to the gym 2 days then i'm wasting a LOT more money.

I usually take weekends off. Right now I work out Monday thru Friday early in the AM before work, and as soon as I get this exam for work taken that I need to, I'll probably at 2-3 evening work outs. Jumping rope, going for a walk, bike ride, etc.I like to enjoy my weekends and relax since the week is stressful.

I usually work out twice during the weekend - on Saturdays I'll either go for a jog or my boyfriend and I go for a long walk/hike somewhere. On Sunday mornings I go to the gym for a quick run to warm up for an advanced Vinyasa Flow class which kills me!

You HAVE to have a rest day otherwise you'll screw up your joints, muscles and become exhausted. If you simply *have* to exercise every day then this is not healthy and counselling should probably be sought for exercise addiction.

Both weekend days. I take advantage of the extra time.

I usually take advantage of the extra time to do my longer distance runs. This weekend was a little difference...saturday was two hours of cardio stripfit plus a five mile run, and sunday I raced a 5k (plus warmup/cooldown) and was first in my age group and fifth female overall.spacekatgal- maybe i'm confused on your meaning, but just to be clear...i'm a competitive runner, and, even if you're not competing, if you want to improve your work-out, meaning build muscle or run a faster 7 miles, you need a rest day, and 2 rest days is totally fine. it's not "whining" - this is coming from running experts, and I've never heard differently from any professional. personally, i'm a believer in "active rests" so I just do something different and lighter.

I'm pretty inconsistent. I occasionally go to the gym, and I usually try to get at least a short run in. I'm a generally restless person though and prefer active recreation, so I often will swim, walk, hike, or dance on weekends.

i don't "work out" on weekends any more. instead, i focus on practicing yoga, and fitting in leisurely activity like walking outside. unless there are unusual circumstances, i never waste weekends in the gym any more!

Mostly it's twice, but this weekend it's four because I'm splitting my normal routine up since I'm at work today.
