Increase By Increments


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Instead of trying to jump my cardio, I set goals for myself of increasing by a small percentage over a period of time to let it become ingrained. This prevents me from hurting myself by straining something which has been a real issue for me since I started out to get healthy.

As an example, right now I am burning 255 calories during my 35 minutes on the treadmill. Once I am comfortably doing a little over that number for at least ten sessions, I will start trying to hit at least 260 for ten sessions, etrc.
