I did a walking tape last night and logged it under aerobics - high impact, because it really was a tough aerobic workout, not just walking. I worked up a serious sweat, just like I do with my Taebo workout. So I figure it should be around the same calories.
But then comes the question...what's the difference between low and high impact? How can you tell what's what?
I've been reading others post on how many calories they are burning by doing what kind of exercise. They seem so high compared to what my tracker says.
I do a 4 mile walk/aerobic dvd program for 55 minutes. And a 5 mile walk dvd for 60 minutes. They only come out to 400 and 528 calories. That seems really low compared to Taebo for 25 minutes =300 calories (just an example).
I know it isn't all that important to track to the percise calorie but if i'm burning more I'd like to know for more modivation.
If anyone knows. Let me know. Thanks!!!!
This time is the real deal. No excuses...
And I will never say "I will start tomorrow, pass the corn bread" again!
