I haven't gotten an "expert" answer yet, but I am working on it. All of the reply's I have gotten so far have been to just continue doing both. One helps your metabolism (10K) and the other helps your cardio/heart (THR), so the best answer I have heard is to alternate.

You would think for weight loss it would be the target heart rate but still a good question to ask there. I like to do both for me.

That's a good question, Jenikloss. I'm afraid I don't know the answer. Feel free to post your question on the main SP message boards under exercise and fitness for the experts' replies. If you do, let us know what they say in response!

I am wondering which is better or more beneficial, making sure that I hit 10,000 steps a day or being sure that I exercise in my THR (target heart range) for at least 20 minutes of the day?

I find it difficult to get both done in a day. I can easily reach my target heart rate by walking the treadmill, but I don't have to do it for such a long length to burn the calories. I have found out now that it is difficult for me to get in the zone when just walking outside, but I can walk for a much longer time and have reached easily beyond the 10K steps.

Anyone?

Jeni~
