If I'm doing workouts that don't require any weights. Should I do the workout every other day or every day? These are intense workouts that I'm using to get ready for weights and to get back into shape after wrestling season ended.

I have been told to not do intense workouts everyday. By this I mean if you have Monday's as your intense leg workouts Tuesday can be a chill arm/chest work out and Wednesday can be a chill leg workout then thursday is an intense arm workout. And so on. 

Of course you want to probably throw in some an workouts and full body days. But you do want to alternate so as to give your body rest. They also say to save a day for overall rest. 

 Also, a little tip, your body starts to lose muscle memory after about 3 days. This doesnt mean that you can't do anything anymore but that, say you benched 150 on Monday (up until then you hadn't been able to really do so) then if you don't use those muscles and let them rest too long you're going to have to work up to that 150 again. 

I don't know if I answered your question. But I hope I helped at least a little.

The best method I know is an intense strength workout and a semi-intense cardio, on alternating days. Then take one day a week off.

Got a question: how do I build a workout here? I want to combine all I know and submit it for others to see and use too.

Ah. Found it. Thank you. It'll be a while before a workout comes through from me, but one will eventually. When it does, do it, it'll be really great! Intense only.

I just made my first workout, called "OPP Stamina Standard," and now can't find it in the Skimble database. The app is telling me that it was saved, but searches for it to confirm it come back with no results. Can anyone else find it?

T's in my profile, but that's no good since it's easy for me. It's supposed to be a cool challenge for other runners.

No running a mile in 6 minutes is easy if your a good runner, I can run it in 5:20 but I'm also a good track runner so yeah if you train it's not too hard.. I mean it's still intense and need lots training but yeah it's possible! 😼

No weights?  Everyday. My only advice is to switch up the exercises weekly so that your body doesn't get accustom to the workout.

I think I fixed the problem with the workout I made. Even though it already says here what that workout is, if someone could look for it to confirm it's there, it's called "OPP Stamina Standard." Thanks for any help with this.

DO NOT WORKOUT EVERY DAY, no matter what! That is THE leading cause of major injury in young athletes in pretty much every sport. Why not slightly older athletes? Because they get that they need to take a rest day. Safety first, take a break. Just check out the sports injury forum here to see the results of everyday workouts.

If you are not dealing with weights then why not workout everyday?  Vary your exercises so that the same muscle group is not be worked consecutive days. Nothing wrong with good ole calisthenics everyday. When in doubt, consult a doctor.

Your muscles are composed 70% of water. Drink lots.
