I know it's "Daily" Burn, but do I have to workout everyday? Or is at least 3-4 times per week sufficient?

  • I just started the workouts last week, and Ignite yesterday. I don't want to kid myself into thinking that I will actually do these workouts daily. At least 3-4 times per week is realistic for me. Will that be an effective goal during the Ignite phase? How many times a week did you workout during the Ignite phase, and what was your resulting weightloss?

    According to a fitness podcast I listen to (Get Fit Guy - which is actually where I heard about Daily Burn) a daily exercise program is ideal if you want to lose weight/tone/etc.
    However, pretty much anyone would tell you that exercising some of the time is better than never exercising at all. More exercise will equal faster results, but 3-4 times a week plus healthy diet is better than healthy diet only.
    I want to add to that, be sure that you don't under-eat. If you are eating less than your body needs to sufficiently sustain you, you won't lose weight. I attend weight loss group meetings, and inevitably if someone just isn't losing pounds, it's because they actually need to eat more.

      Yeah. While I'm tossing the Get Fit Guy's name around, I should probably note that his daily plan involves one day that is recovery - yoga, stretching, etc. But that it is about doing SOMETHING physical daily.

      I am following the Cardio Sculpt program and it has me on something every day, but one day is meditation yoga and another is a stretch program, so it's 5 days of true workouts a week. I can do that...Sometimes if I'm really sore I don't do the yoga/stretch and just use it as a rest day.

    I have the same question. I only started yesterday and appreciate that it's mobile and you can truly do it anywhere but each day isn't pragmatic for my schedule.

      in addition to my full time job I also teach at night 2 nights a week. So I am kind to myself and don't worry for those two nights. Doing some is better than none, doing some more is better than some. I just enjoy my ride and don't make a stress thing of it. I also have a treadmill I enjoy walking for about 10-20 minutes after my dinner. I can tell in just four work outs in 9 days I am getting stronger :) ride yer own ride. don't let anyone "should" on you.
