Am I doing too much at the gym? Watch
I go Wednesdays after work for about 2 hours and Saturdays for about 3.5 hours, I could (and should) do more but I'm still recovering from a knee injury.
I would not suggest doing weights for 2hours 4 times a week though, you'de be a mess and constantly sore...
So recently I joined the gym. I'm not that big but still want to loose some weight and get fitter. Over the past two weeks I've been going 4 times a week for 2 hours. Some friends and family have said I'm doing too much. Is this true or not? I love the gym I would go everyday if I could but I know I need to rest. Help?
The more important question should be why.
Unless you are an endurance athlete (which you aren't by the sounds of it) you could get similar if not better results condensing your workouts but training harder/better when you do and cleaning up your diet.
Sure I enjoy working out and train 3-5x a week but there is more to life than going to the gym.
