Zumba would be great!!! As for the walking....Try this......HIIT - High-intensity interval training !I LOVE it!! HIIT is an exercise strategy alternating periods of short intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods. There is no specific formula to HIIT. Depending on your level of cardiovascular development, the moderate-level intensity can be as slow as walking. A common formula involves a 2:1 ratio of work to recovery periods, for example, 3040 seconds of hard sprinting alternated with 1520 seconds of jogging or walking.....so in other words you would push push push as hard as you can for 30 seconds then recover for 20 seconds at a slower pace then do it again for at least 10 minutes and work your way up to doing 30 minutes of HIIT at each session. So yes shorter intense workouts means less time working out and getting the same results if not better then a longer 60 minute less intense workout!! www.collagevideo.com/ www.totalfitnessdvds.com/ you can find some great workouts on these 2 sites.

Welcome to the group!
Chris wants us to do a 9 minute mission, preferably each morning right after you get up for the day, and just before breakfast. It consists of 3 exercises (he has pictures of them in the book you've noticed). He lays out plans you can choose from so you're doing three different ones, maybe three different ways, depending. I'm just doing three as best I can, repeating them over and over for the nine minutes (this is my third week on his plan)- which is basically how he suggests starting out, from what I've read (and I have read the book over and over and over, lol- and probably will read through that again yet!). The 9 min. Mission is done 5 days a week.
Then also five days a week he wants you to do "Shredders" which are actually anything you enjoy. Your elliptical trainer is fine. He just wants us to not stay at the same pace on whatever we choose but to try to have moments where we step it up some. He says that a lot of dvd workouts do that anyway- so like Zumba (great choice!) would have that "built in" as he would say.
As for how much exercise- he recommends that you can start out with just five minutes but work up to as much as 60 minutes daily for your five days of shredders. However, if, like me, you're already doing around 60 minutes, just stick with that- don't go down to five. :)

Hey all, I'm new to the group and Chris Powell's plan. Just got the book. But I don't really get the workout. Maybe I need to reread the book. A question how much excerise do we need, or calories burned per day on the plan? I have an ellipitical trainer, I walk and I'm thinking to start Zumba.
