How Much Strength Training Do You Need?
If you’re pressed for time or if you really prefer aerobic exercises then we’ve got good news for you! Even if you do resistance training exercises once a week, you can still reap some benefits.
However, if you really want to get stronger and leaner muscles, then resistance training 2-3 times per week is optimal.
Lifting weights twice to three times per week helps the body handle the repetitive stress of movements like running, cycling, or swimming. And if you push yourself on these days, you can give yourself ample time to recover and speed up your progress.
