I was wondering how many days a week I should do cardio and how many days a week I should do strength training/yoga and similar. I know you're supposed to have a rest day but other than that, what should I be shooting for?
I will admit that I generally prefer cardio over strength building exercises. Not because I think it's better but just because I like it better. I also prefer jogging/running over most other cardio exercises.
The reason I ask is because I've been having trouble finding a happy medium. I've plateaued (weight loss) so I figured I should be getting more exercise, but I've been running on sidewalks and I've been getting pain in my legs and sometimes my ankles. Nothing intolerable but just enough to be annoying.
What do you guys think? Any help would be appreciated.
