Ok, so agreed that it can, indeed be divided up into smaller sessions, as long as you're getting your heart-rate up! :)

I searched my electronic edition, and I don't think it says. My interpretation is: the authors gave an example of someone getting exercise two sessions, and "he got it done." So, it must be ok. You do want your heart rate up, and a single 20 is probably better than 2 10s. Leave it to the "test" " Would your teammates/opponents think it's ok?" ??

Shazamela - When I first joined a GAME ON challenge, I asked the same exact thing! That is so funny!

The exercise has always been the easiest part for me - I am VERY active so it works out fine. Just as a tip, I bought a $20-$30 stationary bike that fits under my desk at work. While I am typing at work, I can also pump my legs on the bike. I normally do this throughout the day in conjunction with the sports and stuff I do throughout the week. Works really well.

I think I need to re-read the book, Laurie! :) You may be right about that. I always tell people that I coach that they can divide up their exercise but maybe that's not the way things work in Game On! Hmmmm...Will double check!

LOL -- Shazamela, I know what you mean! Impact exercise and the water intake can seem mutually exclusive.

Hannah -- I always thought exercise had to be one 20 minutes session. I figured you're making time and developing the exercise habit. BUT I just found an example in the book of a guy "sprinting" for 10 minutes to make his flight (Carrying bags and his 37 lb son.) He finished his exercise with power yoga when he arrived at his mom's.)

p 96. I love how i keep learning :-)

Unfortunately, no...I think exercise can be split up into 2 or 3 smaller sessions but probably not ten 2-minute sessions. Good one, though!

Can I add up the minutes that I'm running to the bathroom each day? That counts as exercise...right?
