Q I’m trying to get rid of my bingo wings. Is it okay to do weights every day or should I give my muscles a rest? Rosie, 35

A. It’s always sensible to give yourself one or two days rest in-between sessions. This is actually when the body is recovering and building muscle. Good nutrition is important all the time, but especially during your recovery days. – VICTORIA
