Thank you Julie for posting.. It always help to have interesting articles like this one to read. I usually break up my exercise into 2 as well... usually during the week, I walk during lunch and then more exercise after work. And I agree with Gwen, wearing an HRM does help.

i agree... especially the HRM... you want to know your true level of exertion or lack... wear one. calulators can only "estimate"... and most estimate either too high.. or too low...especially if they don't take your HR into account.

Much of this seems like common knowledge, but it's worth a repeat I think...

Stay Cool
Wear a HRM
Warm up your whole body for 5+ minutes
High-intensity first
Break your workout into multiple parts
Be Aware
Less rest between sets


If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you always got.
