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 work out EVERY SINGLE DAY and today was no exception. I was on the treadmill doing interval walking at inclines... REST: 3.9 pace @ 8 incline WORK: 4.2 pace @ 13 incline -- 101 minutes total! :) Love my walking!!

On the weekends, once. I do most of my workouts during the week.

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!

Usually twice. But sometimes I'll get lazy or just be too tired and it will only be once.

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

Once, if that... I run around all week and I'm usually too tired on the weekends to do anything except my Masters degree course work that I can only do on the weekends since i work 13 hour days at the studio :] hehe. I love to swim though, so I like to try to get out an swim at least once a weekend (even though the pools at my apartment are always extra crowded on weekends)
