does anyone here do 2 workouts a day? if so, how long is each workout and do you think it speeds up your weight loss?

Sometimes. I don't think it necessarily speeds up your workout. When I double up its usually crossfit and running...two different types of workouts. But the overall time I spend working out is about the same. Bc when I just run, I will usually run longer.

I do it occasionally, more to get in my workouts when I'm crunched for time, or for two different kinds of workouts.

yes, i've been doign that for a while now for my training.  total time is maybe 1hr, 15mins; sometimes only 1hr (30mins each) if i'm crunched for time but i go hard the entire time (all interval) so by the end, i'm wiped out.

in theory, it should speed up weight loss esp if you're doing it intervals however, your eating habits are also a major factor in your weight loss.

I do on occasion.. IF I do them, it is on non-running days and I'll do a couple of DVDs that day..so, I usually end up with about 2-3 hours that day.. 

On running days, I end up with 1-2 hours depending on the length of my run.

A couple days per week I'll go for a shorter run and then get some strength training in too. But it's never more than an hour all together.

I sometimes will work out 2 times a day - but if I do that typically, it is one session of cardio and one session of weights/strength training.  The only reason I do that is I don't have time to get everything done at one time.  Also, I will sometimes go for my run during the day and then go for a jog with my daughter in the evening.  That is not happening as much now because of her being back in school (earlier bed time) and it is getting darker earlier.

I don't think anyone needs to work out 2 times a day unless they are a competitive bodybuilder, or something like that.
