    A native speaker would always say, "What do you usually do......."

    and.....more usually, they would say,

    What do you usually do in your spare time?

    They could use, "What do you do usually.......", but that has a differnt meaning. It is used when asking why someone is doing something different or unexpected...............


    "What do you usually do in your spare time?"
    "I usually watch TV."

    "Last week I spent my time-off looking after my sick mother."
    "What do you do usually during your time off?"
    "I spend most of my time with my girlfriend."
