It would be, of course, better if you can add more forms of exercise to that one. Why not do from your home going to school? You might get sweaty, yes, but it'll do you a whole lot better.
well ideally brisk walking for an hour would be equivalent to jogging for 30 minutes... at least that's what I read.
So I never stopped under an hour when I tried to lose weight the first time. It was the best thing to do since I was new to exercise, I was fat and heavy that time so I couldn't really jog as I had no stamina too.
effects from walking for an hour a day, plus a no-rice, low-starch (no cakes, white breads, etc), low-sugar (no ice cream, no artificial juices, no sodas) diet showed results in two months. then I relaxed a little bit on the diet and increased my exercise to make up for it, since I also built a little stamina and felt lighter to do more things.
Well, walker or runner, you'll get most benefit if you aim for thirty to sixty minutes a day. It doesn't have to be all at once — three or four fifteen minute blocks through the day is just as good.
The impact of running on your joints can be more than three times your body weight, every step is triple the impact of walking. You have to train your body to get used to the jarring. Ultimately for walking or running — find your level, then build up slowly and the benefits will come, both in weight loss and general health.Originally Posted by Dr Lynch
And when your body is used to running, after you've slowly increased the strain during your walking/short runs which'll make it easier for you to run for longer distances you will see the real results.
In terms of weight loss, running wins hands down over walking. In general, you have to walk nearly an hour, to get a similar weight-loss benefit to a half hour run. So continue like you do now, and then increase slowly. It's an exponential increase of calories burned and distance/speed you've moved.
In my home area in Manila, I cannot do walking nor running as my form of exercise because there are lots of trucks and buses in front of our house unless I want to be hit and smashed my brains to molecules. As a substitute for that exercise, I walk up and down our stairs instead. I do it for 30 minutes every day after I get back to work from school.
I recommend doing that exercise because you have no costs at all! Plus, you'll definitely sweat a lot due to the gravity you are opposing in just going up the stairs. I'm planning to adding weights on my going up and down the stairs.
I just can't stand doing that kind of exercise I get bored out of my mind, really. Even treadmills kill me because I can't stand being in one place. >.<
That's why I like walking (in Makati, steel, and UP/Ateneo campuses in the metro) or jogging or swimming- I get to go places and see people and different scenery.
That, or Billy blanks
I'd kill myself if I start running in our damned street of ours so I guess I have no other choice left than to walk up and down the stairs. But hey, it's still fun! I always listen to music so that I don't become too conscious of the time I'm working.
Music is definitely a very useful aid in exercising. It lets me become unmindful of the time. You wouldn't realize you'd have exercised 30 minutes already.
Tae Bo is one of the best forms of exercises but I'm afraid to try it out because I'm afraid I'll be the first one to quit especially in Tae Bo tours in famous department stores. It'll be embarrassing!
ah but I don't attend a Taebo class. I just do it at home with the videos. It aint too bad, especially because Billy Blanks is a cool guy ^^
My sisters and I all do his workouts on our own since we live separate lives but we do get competitive during homecomings about keeping our figures
Ive been biking alot lately im sweating and i can feel the pain the next day in my legs and stomach so i must be doing something right i wanna try and lose 50-60 pounds by the summer
that's a draaaastic weight loss by trying to lose 60 lbs in two months! are you following some "biggest loser" program or something?
My weight loss of 30 lbs happened in two years, gradually. And because of this experience I firmly believe that gradual honest work is the way to go. With gradual loss the skin can recover, at the same time your metabolism adjusts properly so you don't go through withdrawal, or a backlash in weight gain.
I've tried crash dieting of different methods, and I do lose some weight but after a week or so I gain even more than I lost because of the adverse reaction to the sudden weight loss and drastic change in diet.
Well, I'll be keeping this up for 2 months first and see what it will bring me
Oh and I can't walk to school in the morning unfortunately.. It starts at 7.20a.m and if I do, I'll have to start at 6 in order to be on time and to be honest, the traffic here is bad for me to walk that early.
..and I'll have body odor.
Hurray for the men and better luck next time for the girls; I've read once in a study that men tend to lose weight faster than women. Here it is:
And 60 lbs in just two months? I think that's possible if combined with both diet and daily exercise.
Let's get it on!
Well when i went to Germany in the summer of 09 for a month i lost 30 pounds just by biking and walking everywhere so its possible
If possible, a person has to start off with something like 1 and 1/2 cup of rice and a vegetable viand (non-salty and non-sweet, with minimal oil). If he gets accustomed with the new lifestyle, he should try to reduce it a little more until he can finally control his oral urges. Little by little, this can finally be called as proper dieting. Of course, exercise will expedite the process of weight loss because he can burn the calories taken.
Firstly, the breasts shrink before anything else does >.> That's a sad fact, i'm afraid.
Here's a shocker though. Shoe size! The 30 lbs weight loss for me caused my shoe size to get smaller! maybe the fats surrounding my feet disappeared??
