A Question

Postby yummymummy » Wed Jan 24, 2007 2:11 pm

Im about to become the proud owner of a cross trainer!! My aim is to do about 30min of exercise per day with the combo of walking, pump classes and the cross trainer.
Anyway will I get the same fat burning benifit if I do say 3 10min sessisions on the cross trainer in comparrision to 1 30min session???
Im getting better at exercise but Im finding on days when Im busy (which can be often) exercise gets the slip so I thought with the cross trainer if I did 10-15min morning and night and when I get a spare momment it would be good;
what do you reakon??
thanks guys
:D Jody

Well, they say that you should be doing cardio for at least 20 mins at a time because then it starts burning fat.
But if you're busy than go for the 3 x 10 sessions!! if it's more manageable for you then go for it!! :)

I agree with Emma 20 mins plus is good but if you can't fit it all in best to do smaller blocks so you are doing something each day. The cross trainer gives a good cardio workout I think. Sounds like you have some nice exercises picked out there. Good on you. :D

True, but don't make it a chore, you don't want to stop cause your not enjoying it. It's the same that goes for what time of the day is best to workout. Ultimately it is what works for you and what you can fit in and what you can stick with it. Have fun.
