Congratulations on your dedication to exercise. All types of exercises help. However, attempting to train 6 days per week is, in most probability, overtraining. You need to let your body rest and recover from the workouts. 5 days per week is really the maximum number of times one should train.

I use a bicycle for transportation and don't feel right on days when I don't ride at least 4 miles....this is pretty moderate exercise unless you're peddling hard and going uphill a lot. There's nothing wrong with more intense exercise, but it won't burn fat and it's not necessary to stay in good shape. Your energy levels will vary depending on many factors.
