Working out happens for most people once a day. Sometimes it happens once a week. If you are really dedicated to your workouts, however, they will happen daily. If you want to make working out a habit you will do it every day at the same time, each day in order to commit it to memory that you need to do your workout daily. Sometimes, however, people will do more than one workout in a day not because they want to be fitter than they already are but some things might have happened in their day that makes them want to blow off steam.
There is no such thing as too many workouts or is there? I don’t think that there is because the workouts that you do give off endorphins to make you feel happier, calmer and ready to take on the day or to finish off your day. Working out is not designated to a time of day either, I have an entire post about working out during different times of the day that you can refer to if you want to know more. Depending on what you want to focus on during your workouts, depends on you and how many workouts you want to do I guess. For example, if you really want to work on your abs or your lifting, you can spend hours doing it or you can do more than one workout a day in order to get where you want to be faster.
Some people workout when they are stressed because working out is a great stress reliever. I know that I workout when I am stressed and sometimes I end up doing two workouts just because of how stressful my day has been. Working out for most people clears their head, and that is why they do it. Most people who workout do it when it fits into their schedule, and for the most part that is once a day. But have you ever tried doing more than one workout in a day? I have done more than one workout in a day, and that is because of my stress levels. When I am really stressed about something even if I have already done my workout for the day, which for the most part I do in the morning so it would be done, I will still do another workout just to clear my head.
Working out is for exercise and to make you feel better, isn’t it? So even if you have done your workout already but your day turns out to be a bad one why wouldn’t you do it again. Some people do their workouts in the morning to help them get going instead of using coffee as a starter for their day, and others do their workouts just to keep them going which is a great way to do them as well. It depends on the person and what they do in their day, that depends on a number of workouts that they do.
Workouts and a number of workouts a person does in a day depending on what their goals are. Each person is different and their goals are different. Each person also has their own life to live and that is why fitting fitness into a person’s life should work for them, and if they want to do two workouts a day to better themselves fitness wise then they should do it. I know that I do it, not really to better myself fitness wise when I do two of them in a day but to get rid of stress because it is better to do that then it is to do something else that will not benefit your future.
Working out and how many workouts a person should do in a day should depend on the person and what they want out of their workouts. In my opinion, do workouts that fit into your life, more so than what you see on a schedule at a gym. So do at home workouts when they work for you. According to google when you put in the exact words how many workouts should you do a day, the definition that comes up to achieve general fitness there is no need to separate body parts on any given day you can train your body parts, 3-4 times a week performing 2 to 3 exercises per body part with 12-15 repetitions per set. So I guess if you want to do more than one workout a day it shouldn’t hurt. If you want to workout seven days a week it shouldn’t hurt either but you should have a rest day or two in there, I have a post all about rests day that you can refer to if you want to know more about it.
So how many workouts should you do a day, it depends on your preference and what you want to train. Be careful that you don’t strain your muscles so that you can continue your workouts throughout the week. Sometimes I do two workouts a day, it just depends on how my day turned out and how stressed out I am, working out helps with stress so if you need to do more than one a day then do it. No matter what anyone says, and no matter what the internet says you can do anything you want if it works for you then do it. Just like fitting fitness into your life do it so that it works for you, and if doing more than one workout a day works for you then why wouldn’t you?
Working out more then once a day never hurt anyone and if you fit fitness into your life like I do then some days you might workout all day, and other days you might work out for an hour or two sometimes less. Depending on what you decide to do for your workout. Some days I do two workouts a day just because I love the rush of what the workout makes me feel, and somedays I do two workouts because I like getting my workout done in the morning as most of my readers know but if I go grocery shopping, or for a walk or to the mall I consider that another workout. Which in turn means I will be doing two workouts and doing that doesn’t hurt in a sense it makes you stronger and more limber in the end, doesn’t it?
A number of workouts a person should do a day are up to them, if they want to do two workouts or even just one workout then they should be able to do that. My motto is as long as you are fitting fitness into your life at least at some point in the day, then it doesn’t matter how many workouts you do or how long they last. The amount of workouts you do in a day is up to you, and how you want to feel if you feel good doing two workouts a day if that is what calms you before bed or wakes you up in the morning then do whatever works. I sometimes do two workouts a day because I am stressed and need something other than my stress to focus on and that is when I usually do two workouts a day. I feel amazing after one workout but if I need to do two then I will it just depends on what you feel, it is all about what you can fit into your life in terms of workouts so do what works for you.

You bring up a good topic. Very thoughtful post. I would say that if you’re working out twice a day, you really should be eating enough calories to fuel your performance. Otherwise, you’re really putting yourself in a calorie deficit and then you’re results will begin to suffer long-term.
Yes that is true you should be eating enough calories to fuel your preformance thanks for the comment when I work out twice in a day I am sure to eat enough
