Why You Should Consider Weekend Workouts

Unlike daily exercisers, weekend warriors pack all of their physical fitness efforts into the weekend. While this may mean getting just two days of workouts per week, there are some unique benefits to this trend that make it a lifestyle choice worth considering.

Muscle Recovery

Because you are not working out too frequently, you give each muscle sufficient time to recover from each workout session. This means better muscle repair and growth.

Heart Health

Because doing only weekend workouts requires one to pack all of their physical activity into one intense session, such high-impact workouts could end up boosting your heart function.

Avoid Boredom

Working out every day can be a drag, especially when you do similar workouts each week. By only exercising on the weekends, you can avoid this repetition and keep things interesting.
