I increased my cardio to 4 times per week this week. A cardio day is an hour or more of cardio at the large gym or my home gym. This is over 12,000 steps. "When it comes to cardio, aim for a minimum of 3 days per week with no more than 2 days between sessions. Gradually work your way up to 5 or 6 days per week. Frequency is especially important when it comes to weight loss. The more you exercise, the more calories you will burn. But don't forget the importance of rest and recovery. Give yourself at least 1 to 2 days off each week. SparkPeople's Reference Guide to Aerobic Exercise explains everything you need to know about cardio. " -SP trivia page

    All great and correct advice. A little tip: immediately after your workout, drink a protein drink to replenish your energy levels. If you don't your body will turn your muscle to fat to convert to the energy it needs.

Don't want to work on nice muscles to have your body taking them away!!

Fitness Notes

Saturday, January 08, 2011

The average American gains 3 pounds a year on the holidays. If that happens every year, it is not too long until this person gets an unhealthy size. I may not have reached all of my fitness goals, but at least I did not get worse. Can't wait for my car to get fixed so that I can get to the gym even more of the time.
