sfboy987 saidSo how much excercise is too much excercise? I want to lose body fat, and I have in the past by going to the gym and doing weights/cardio 3 times a week. However, I feel like I can push myself a lot more. Maybe I'm just not working hard enough on my workout days, but I feel I can keep going longer. I was thinking of a new workout program where I still do weights/cardio 3 times a week and then run like 6 miles on three more days of the week. I was possibly thinking of doing even more than this, but I heard resting after lifting weights is really important too. Would working out more mean boosting my caloric intake as well, or can I just leave it at 2000 like I usually do?
By being so lazy / scared as to be a profile-less, and picture-less, you don't provide enough information to answer the question in a qualified way. Had you taken time to think, even for a moment, you would have known that before posing the question. We don't even know what you look like, to make the most basic of judgments. You've shot yourself in the foot on this one.
We can't even guess at calories without knowing body mass, and activity levels, so, that part is unanswerable, in any qualified way.
We don't know your history, and you haven't put it forward. A well-trained individual with adequate calories can train much harder, and rest, can recover much faster and train with a higher intensity than someone just starting out. If someone is inexperienced, never been an athlete, they won't be able to train with the seem intensity as someone who has been doing it for decades.
Here's something you need to know: anything worth doing should be worth doing well. If you want people to answer you in a qualified way, you have to put forth the information requires to answer that question in a qualified way. You need to approach your goals in that way, if you wish to formulate a plan for success. Come prepared.
2000 calories would be on the very, very, very, low end of adequate calories. Unless you're very tiny, that's way short. At 160#, and 12% fat, you'd need about 2820 calories, just to maintain a sedentary lifestyle. Add 600 for working out. Add 600 for trying to gain. 2000 calories would be a plan for failure under almost all conditions.
