 May/ June 2018 Newsletter Article 

I get asked by members a lot, "How often should I lift weights per week?"  I think this is a valid and great question as we all know that lifting weights can help lower the risk of heart disease, derease blood pressure, improve cholesterol numbers, improve balance and is the best defense against osteoporosis.

Weekly Schedule
If you're experienced in weight training, try a routine to give you a total resistance workout of threee times per week.  Space out your weight training by lifting weights on one day and resting the muscles on the next day, as this ensures that your muscles get a good chance to recover.  For example, lift weights Monday, Wednesday and Friday, perform some moderate to intense cardio exercises on Tuesday and Thursday, and take the weekend to completely rest your entire body to be ready for the next weekly routine.  With this type of workout, you need to hit all muscle groups on all 3 weight-lifting days and do some serious cardio on the other 2 days.

Duration
I would recommend three to six sets of resistance training on each major body part (arms, legs, chest, core and shoulders).  Each set should contain 8 to 12 repetitions with a weight that you can manage before it becomes a struggle to lift effecting your form.  10 to 15 repetitions per set may also be thrown in every other week or heavier weights with fewer reps such as 4 to 6 to trick your body's propensity for muscle memory.  This increase in reps is required because muscle mass is lost naturally as you age, and you will need to work harder to maintain and build muscle the older you become.  You should rest and allow your muscles to recover for at least 48 hours, on average, after your resistance training session before you tackle your next one to ensure that your muscles have time to repair.

Other workout routines may be done over a 4-day cycle.  For example, you might work your chest, triceps and biceps on Monday, legs, back and shoulders on Tuesday, rest on Wednesday and repeat this cycle on Thursday and Friday.  With the 4-day cycle, you might consider higher reps with heavier weights on the latter part of the week.  If you really want to get your body to burn calories, I recommend starting with at least 10 to 20 minute high-paced cardio exercise on your favorite cardio machine.

You Will Burn More Calories
Although cardio burns more calories than strength training during your 30-minute sweat session, lifting weights burns more overall.  It all goes back to building muscle.  It take more energy (calories) for your body to maintain muscle cells than it does fat cells.  So by lifting weights to add ore muscle mass, you will boost your metabolism and turn your body into a more efficient fat-burning machine.

There are tons of other types of routines that you can follow that may be more to your liking, or even may be more benificial to your personal style of working out.  There is no golden rule besides getting out and doing something!  For example, some people may have a bad shoulder, knee or other issues that won't allow them to workout a particular body part.  If this is your case, do something, work around it, but don't let it stop you from following some plan of action.  If you don't want to do leg day (men), then do something else that you enjoy doing during your workout.   The most impportant this is to do something!
