I am no doctor, or medical expert, so this is comming from pure experience on my part.

I did the Jillian Micheals DVD, “Last Chance Workout”, every day, six times a week. I encountered absolutely no injuries during the several months I did it, in fact I felt pretty energetic, and strong.

I think the “don’t do weights everyday” rule applies more to people who are using weights in order to gain muscle. It’s best to let the muscle rest for a longer than just 24 hours–to recover and rebuild from the workout you had.

If you’re only using weights for resistance and to make aerobic exericse more challenging then I don’t see any reason to not use them everyday.

I’ve never done the JM DVD’s, but when I was losing weight, and even now when I’m just working out, I find it really keeps me more motivated and interested if I do different things. I love yoga, but I know I would get burnt out on it fast if I did it very single day. But if it’s a fast routine that only takes you 15 or 20 minutes and you really enjoy it then sure, why not, it might help you to get into a routine if you do it daily. Just make sure you’re changing the actual moves–doing exactly the same thing every day won’t be effective for very long.

@piglet_625:  I think that rule applies to the big men in the gym lifting 50 pounds per arm. 🙂  We go to the gym and lift weights ever day, but we do different body sections each time.  You should be fine doing 3-5 lbs every day but I think if you go up to 10-15 ever, you might need a break.  Listen to your body, if you feel like it’s too much, try the video without the weights one day but if you feel good, then keep going!
