I'm doing Mark Lauren"s You Are Your Own Gym workout and am not that experienced with doing exercising and my question is in going from one exercise to another am I supposed to rest in-between or go right into the next exercise

generally depending on your fitness levels and the intensity you should minimise rest depending on your goal im assuming its a circuit type routine.
never stand completely still even if recovering keep moving at least gently and then start the next one (have a sip of water in between each set)

I agree with Spacey47. The goal of the exercise program is to probably keep your heart rate up for an effective cardiovascular workout. If your heart rate feels a bit high you could always pause the video to take an extra minute or so of rest until you recover and drink some extra water. Good luck!

Even though Mark has some good points against cardio workouts, in his book you cand find hints on how much time you should rest. I believe thats no more than 30s. What is more, he sets a time frame for each circuit so you would know on how much at least approx it should take for you to finish it. Just as Mark states, better slower than incorrectly, so don't push yourself too hard if you're starting to lose the shape of the movement, with time you will improve and will be able to do same thing without breaks. Good luck!

How long do you all work out for?
It depends on the type I do. Usually 25-30 min of weights and/or HIIT. I really like a free website called fitnessblender.com. Lots and lots of different types of workouts and lengths there.
