How many times a week should I work out with weights?

Five days a week I do cardio following Leslie Sansone Walk At home videos. Some of them have weights involved but I do not do an actual weight routine. Should I? How many times per week?

  • At least 3 times a week. I do the Cassey Ho Youtube exercises with weights (especially her ab routines) and they really do burn. I do about 5-10 mins of light weights every day though

  • At least every other day or longer , eat protein .

    copy past the link for more info . I try to alternate which muscles I work with, The more you build up the muscles the less likely you will have type 2 diabetes.

  • 2-3 times a week is plenty. Never work the same muscle group on two consecutive days, including abs.
