Low impact is if you can still talk and have a conversation, Medium is if you can do short sentences, but not too much and you start sweating after 5 or ten minutes high impact is if you're really going and can only say a few words here and there and are obviously sweating a lot lol - you'll know it when you do it right? :) But I think they should have some way of measuring it like that on here. If not try to find something comparable - but on doing the video in the first place!! :) I've just started the leslie sansone(sp?) walking videos myself - the cardio videos always mess with my knees from all those squats but keep going and have fun!!! lots o love!!! katie 4323 days ago
I've done weightwatchers for so many years that I prefer to track exercise and food as "points."
Even though I've done it for years, I still fall back on an old WW "calculator" (when you join, they give you little sliders that can also do it but I have an oldddddd calculator--it's the size of a day-planner, it's so big!) that you plug in your weight, the time exercised and if it was low, medium or intense energy. 4325 days ago
Without a heartrate monitor, etc., you'll need to try to figure out where it fits into an existing cardio workout listed in SP. For example, is it low-impact, high-impact, step...?
Example: When I'm watching Biggest Loser (or another program, but ALWAYS during BL), I jog/march in place and pump my arms. My heart rate gets up pretty good and my breathing is heavy. However, since I always have one foot on the floor, it's considered low-impact aerobics. I track it as such on the SP Fitness Tracker. 4325 days ago
