    I am a woman obsessed with workout, since I was in my 20's. Now in my early 40's, In a week I do the following training under an instructor as part of a group training at my gym. 6 hours weight training, 3 hours body balance, 1.5 hours air punch combat, 1 hour fit boxing, 1.5 hours RPM, 2 hours Zumba, 1 hour pilates, 1 hour body step, 2 hours Yoga and 3 hours cross fit training. I weigh 50kg and am 155cms tall. I have toned arms and legs and my weight justs floats around 49 to 51kg. I have a lot of energy, takes a lot to exhaust me and I also dance in weekends for over 3 hours Saturday and Sunday nights. I train before and after work. Would this training be harmful or beneficial in the long run? I just enjoy my workouts to the full.

    Hi Tara, welcome to agj.

    You sound fit as, and you are about the same age as me, are you single?...jk.

    I am sure some more knowledgeable members will help out but to me if you are very fit I can't see how your training could be harmfull to your health.

    As long as you aren't experiencing any symptoms of over training, obviously doing all that training you would want to be eating well, if you are dand your weight is steady I think you should be fine, there are some really knowledgeable members here who i'm sure can give a better response though.

    Anyway welcome and I hope you stick around.

    make sure you are eating enough and resting enough, look after your joints and you have nothing to worry about.

    the complete opposite actually lol.

    Thanks. I have never controlled my diet. I eat whatever I feel like. I tend to burn off extra calories. In terms of resting, I have a problem with that. I sleep very less anywhere between 2 to 5 hours each night. I have been like this for as long as I can remember and lack of sleep has not interfered with my health in any way.

    from a medical perspective 4-5 hours sleep is alright, but 2-4 is going to be detrimental.

    You should have a look into sleep hygiene and see if theres anything you can improve on.

    Aside from that some controlled release melatonin may help you as well.
