Q. How many days per week should you work out with weights?
A: Men and women who are beginners should train with weights three times per week. If you are more advanced, you can lift four or five times each week. Make sure you give each body part time to recover in your training schedule; for example, if you train legs on Monday don’t train them again until Thursday. For best results, follow each weight-lifting session with 20-30 minutes of cardio work.
