Question

How often should I do resistance/weight training?

Answer

This is a very good question. For long term health benefits, I believe you will be more consistent with 1 to 2 times per week. This will be far more achievable, and will be still effective. If you do this type of exercise too often, you are not allowing your body enough rest and/or recovery time, so can actually regress, rather than progress! Plus you can easily lose interest if doing too much.
