Working Out Is Personal When it comes to working out, individuals do it for different reasons and it's highly personal to your goals. If you are trying to increase overall health and wellness, it's a good idea to have an even combination of resistance training and cardio. Let's say your goal is to exercise for 30 minutes, four days per week. We recommend switching every other workout between resistance training and cardio so you can stay balanced and improve both strength and cardiovascular health. Make sure you work hard, have rests and do not overdo it.
