    In the last 90 days I've begun to listen to my body, I thought this was hogwash until I learned to slow up and listen.
  • I've been told, the more you walk, the further you can walk the next time. This is doable for me. Thank you, SparkFriends!
  • Logistics with outside walking would be cumbersome. Probably work better with a treadmill.
  • I would think not everyone could even do this workout given with those high numbers on the side. perhaps its just a suggestion to go faster than what you think you can do...for outside its going to be hard, but just keep trying to do what you can do and if you feel like you are ready to drop over slow careful
  • Why is "extremely hard" less intense than "very hard"?? :D
  • If not walking on a treadmill, how would someone know what speed is what? -- Lou
  • Excited to get started on the next scheduled walking day!
  • I can't imagine trying to keep track of this, I would have to bring a clipboard and timer and keep stopping to figure out the next move
  • I am giving this a try again.
  • I have tried this before and liked it a lot.
    My only problem is living in a rural area where there are no leash laws and a pit bull who has made my walking workouts outdoors come to a halt!
  • Have my playlist set up similar to this . . . and love it. Have been using this method for 20 years.

    However, as was mentioned a couple comments earlier, health considerations (blood pressure, etc.) MUST be seriously considered.
    Decent program, would be nice if SparkPeople allowed an intensity level on their fitness section. I do a lot of water aerobics, but honestly my intensity varies. Would be nice to note this and up or lower calorie input.
  • If someone has high blood pressure or some other health concerns, pushing to 7 isn't the best idea.
  • This is a great exercise. It is simple to adjust the level of intensity l to any stage you are at in your exercise plan, Just listen to your body it will tell you. But remember pushing ourselves a little is the reward and how we loose those unwanted pounds.
