When I actually workout, I do so every week day. But I mostly only do cardio. Back when I was an athlete, we had 1 maybe 2 days to rest on the weekends.

It’s safe to work out everyday, as long as you are switching up muscle groups.

Be sure to equally train cardio, flexibility and weight training – you don’t want to get injured.

@gooch yes i agree…i’m not hugely into this but when i try to develop some area i always allow a day off, maybe 2, before returning…you notice the difference if you allow a break…but i’m no expert!.....

I misread the question (because I’m a dolt).

As they said, one day.
