    For those who work out for a variety of reasons, staying in shape, health, building strength/muscle, narcissistic reasons, athletic training and conditioning, etc...

    Depends on what you mean by "workout."

    I play basketball for 2+ hours 3-4 times a week. I ride my bike to and from work everyday. I play indoor soccer 3 times a week and starting next week, i'll play outdoor once a week. As far as lifting goes, I don't do it at all really, although I really should start.

    I do something like 3 days per week, mainly weights, but I toss in the occasional cardio day (once per week)

    I run between 2 and 6 miles 4-5 times a week and do (very) light weight lifting anywhere between 2-6 times a week.

    Depends on my routine, but 3-4 times a week. 3 times is when I'm lifting heavy (3-5 reps/set), and 4 times when I'm going more for size (4-8 reps/set)

    Your body needs rest. Be sure to give it some time off, or you'll negate any gains and look like a little girly man.

    I would like to got 6 times a week but its closer to 4 I suspect. I normally do some light cardio before and after weight days just to warm up and down. And I like to do cardio days aswell. Nothing to special but its a nice break from life when you get inside the gym.
