too much?

Hi! I just joined a gym w/ DH. I am now unemployed and very bored at home so I do a work out videos in the morning then lay around the house bored all day. Now, DH wants to go to the gym in the evenings 3x week. Will that be too much? I know I need a day off to recover but I am so bored all day that I want to do a video in the morning. I figure I lay around all day so that give my body time to recover. I mainly do cardio and add strength about 2x week. I have been working out for the last 8 days straight and feel ok, any advise?

"as a fitness professional" i agree about taking a day off each week, but i don't think going to the gym in the evenings with her husband (i.e. working out twice in one day on some days) is necessarily too much. she could do a cardio, pilates, or yoga video in the mornings 5x a week and strength train 3x a week at the gym with her husband. that's perfectly reasonable.

I think this depends on the person really. I go to the gym 7 days a week sometimes 2 times in one day. I strength train 3 to 4 times a week and do lots of cardio daily. And I haven't had a day off from the gym for a month now. So it's really about your body and how much you can take.

If you are working out really hard, you need to give your body at least one rest day a week.
