How Much Time Should I Spend Working Out?

How should I spend training?   What should my weekly routine look?
How much time you spend really comes down to how long you've been on a regular program and what your goals are. For example if it's been six months since you've worked out, you'll need to take it slowly. Start with a walking program of 3-5 days per week for 10-20 minutes, building up to 30 minutes, 5 times per week. After that, bump it up to 200 minutes per week.
