When you're trying to get into shape you can't just stick to one form of exercise and expect it to fix all of your problems.
Cardio, strength training and flexibility are all equally important in the journey to make a better you.
Of course, it can get a bit confusing when you're trying to figure out how many times a week you should be doing each form of exercise.
This list is a breakdown that varies depending on your specific goals, but in general, four to five days a week will do the trick if you're aiming to improve your fitness and stay in shape.
What should each day of working out look like?
If you're going for the full five days per week, three days should focus on strength training, two days should focus on cardio, and two should be active rest (this is where yoga comes into play).
If you only want to work out four days a week, think about your goals: If you want to add muscle tone, cut a cardio day. If you want to improve endurance, skip a strength day. Or, switch it each week.
Here's how (and when, and why) to crush it at each one.
