Where Is Your Cardio?

This Sparked Me!

You can benefit from multiple cardio sessions throughout the day. If you cannot get in a single 30-45 minute session, 3 or 4 10-15 minute sessions can help you too. So if you donít have the time to do it all at once, break it up throughout your day.

CMFARRELL36 8/12/2013 6:56:00 PM

    That's how I do it.
So long as I can get in at least 10 minutes, I'll count it.

    Very true. It is so nice this time of year where I live I just want to stay off the treadmills and get outside with a one of my two dogs.

    Thanks for the tip! Good alternative when crunched for 30 time slot. 3 x 10 will do it.
PROPMAN1 6/5/2013 3:56:00 PM

    Thanks. Usually try to do 1-30 minute session which doesn't always work(my lunch hour can become a lunch hour meeting so no workout). Guess I'll try (esp. heavy work days) to do some 'mini' workouts. emoticon

SHANNONY84 6/4/2013 8:27:00 AM

    Great tip! This is what I do!
DELLMEL 6/4/2013 7:50:00 AM

    I walk for an hour some days. I get on the treadmill somedays. Jump rope. But I can squeeze a little more into my day.
SHARONCAPPS 6/4/2013 7:18:00 AM

    I will try to add some during the day. Thanks.
EBONYSOL 6/4/2013 6:11:00 AM

    I will start with one 10 min session tomorrow and if all goes well, do 2 10 minute sessions and so on. No exercise is pain free owing to some physical issues but 10 minutes is achievable.
MARIHENRY 6/16/2010 9:01:00 AM

    It is hard to say I don't have 10 or 15 minutes to exercise. I need to just DO it.
CINABEE 6/15/2010 9:12:00 PM

    bike 40 15 30 today emoticon
THINSPARKLE 6/15/2010 3:57:00 PM

    AWESOME! AM walk 20 minutes. LUNCH walk 15 minutes. After work get to the Elyptical for 15 minutes = one hour today while burning about 400 calories! emoticon emoticon
