Tracking question

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

I am doing a exercise dvd from Prevention. It is called 2-week turnaround cardio. Chris Freytag is the fitness trainer. It is interval power walk with strength training mixed in. I am not sure how to track it. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
By the way, I feel great after my work out. Not sure why I stopped doing this regularly.

Happy day to all, hope you are feeling great too. I am so thankful for sparkpeople, and for all of you guys who are eternally positive and extremely contagious. LOL Love ya'll!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'm not sure what the general "official" position is for SparkPeople, but if you can get a general idea of how much cardio is included in dvd, you coukd track XX minutes of cardo on the tracker. Then any specific strength training the DVD had you do, if you can find it on SP exercise strength train tracker (ie 10 push-ups, just track it as one set, 10 reps, and your weight. If its something with dumbbells or bands, then look around on SP to find the ones you did - but beware, sometimes the same basic exercise has different names. SP at least tries to list the strength exercises by upper body, lower body and core.

Collage Videos dot com has a pretty good breakdown of minutes spent in warm up, cardio, training, cool down etc, whatever the sequence is, for all the workout DVD's they sell, and chances are, they have that dvd info online in their website.

Plus there is a Quick Fit (something like that ) where you just write in your own note about what it was you did, and the total number of minutes - if you just can't find the exercise or don't know how it is called, or don't have time to deal with hunting for it - at least you'd get the minutes down!!

Some people also use their BodyBugg to record time and calories burned for their use of a specific DVD workout - that would work if you have one (I don't, but my FitBit records time, steps, and equivalent flights of stairs, so it can do a rough calculation of calories burned.)

Hope that helps!! And in any case, the best workout is the one you will actually do - so if this dvd works for now, just do it - don't sweat th tracking details... Just sweat out those dying fat cells you just whomped in your workout!!
