I'm just wondering b/c hubby said no way! Exercise is great for your body and mind. So far today (I feel motivated so Im going with it lol) I did the 30 DS then I did her NMTZ (no more trouble zones) and now I want to go on the treadmill for 45 minutes. If I do all of this I will have over 2 hrs of exercise in for today. I'm gonna be starving tonight!!! lol oh and all of this on top of everything else a mommy/housewife does

there is such thing... with cardio you can get away with doing it everyday.. but with strength training your body needs time to repair and recover itself. I'm sure Tonya can explain it better.

oh! I did not know that...I knew that when it hurts, it means you need to take it easier, and knew that if you do 2 hours, you need ot make it consistent to avoid confusing the body or something close to this...but now I learn more about muscle relaxing.

I'm going to agree. My DH has explained to me multiple times how it's possible to overdo strength training.

where are your children? How do you manage to do so much if you have kids running around? I have a 2 year old tantruming on the kitchen floor right now - I can't even imagine trying to work out.

I'm so envious of you, please share your secrets!

Well today was a challenge, I had to stop the DVD several times to get Josh stuff or distract him. He was sitting on me when I was doing floor work, lol. I usually try to exercise when he's taking his nap (I usually have 2 hrs). I usually turn the computer on for my 5 year old or in the afternoons 3 days a week he's at preschool and the others are in school My house does suffer a bit b/c I'd rather be working out then cleaning lol

It depends on the person as to what is too much for them, but it is possible to overtrain with any form of exercise. As your conditioning improves, you will be able to do more and more without the drawbacks of overtraining, but you really need to build up to doing 2+ hours a day; don't just jump into it.

The effects of overtraining can be feelings of exhaustion, sluggishness, lack of results, headaches, body aches, inability to complete your workout, etc. So, yeah, you can definitely do more harm then good when you overtrain.

thanks Tonya. How many days of the week do you suggest running on the treadmill? I was thinking 2-3 days....
I also have a strength workout (jillian michaels no more trouble zones) and a two cardio biggest loser DVDs. I would do those the remaining 3 days?
How many days do you do the strength workout? That is the one that is important that I don't overdo right??
And what are the best exercises for a smaller person?
