A Sprinter Running A 100 Meter Race Starts At Rest
30min running on treadmill & 1hr full body, medium-high intensity workout at the gym 4x a week. On average how long until I start to look more toned?
Depends: Being "tone" is dependent on multiple factors including your body fat percentage/lean muscle mass percentage as well as genetics. Some individuals are genetically inclined to have those "6-pack" abs, while others can strengthen their abs forever and be thin, but never get that 6-pack appearance. I would think though within one month that you would notice a change in your physical appearance. ...Read more
Hey, is jump roping 1 minute and then resting one minute over and over a good stamina excercise? It seems a lot easier than going 10 minutes straight
Interval training: What you are talking about is interval training (30 sec sprint with a resting interval) vs lower intensity steady state training (treadmill or exercise bike). Weight lifters believe that the higher intensity interval training is better for burning fat. Some studies support this. Interval workouts should not be easier, though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I try and walk 5 days a week at least 60 minutes a day on the treadmill at 2.3 mph with no incline is this still considered cardio?
Cardio: Your question is missing any kind of data to make a good answer. The biggest issue is are you getting your heart rate to a level that is 'excercise'...Like at your age you should be at 130 to 140 beats per minute. If you are at this level you are exercising appropriately. If not you are just sauntering and wasting your time. ...Read more
Yes: As long as you do at least 5 days in a week, this is good. ...Read more

Do i need a pacemaker, 73 year old male active, walking 3 mile a day. Pulse rate in the 40 to 50 beats a minute?
Unlikely! PulseRate≠: heart rate, may be slower, never faster. Slower rates for someone physically active is c/w lower normal heart size & good heart function. Pacemakers make heart weaker (less well coordinated due to where they stimulate heart muscle); only useful for long pauses, e.g. >2 sec, with symptoms due to low output for given activity. Pacemakers=only a backup; remind heart muscle to contract if too slow. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a resting heart rate of about 95-98, started exercising to lose weight with a mile indoor walking video. It took over an hour to recover my resting pulse...Blood pressure over last few days about 142/99 so should I decrease my intensity a bit, ju
34 male, EKG, echo stress fine. out of shape. Throat burn after walking. Is walking enough cardio at my age? Can I start by walking for 30 min/day?
Exercise: Starting by walking 30min/day is excellent, work up to 3mi/day and then work for 3mi in less than an hour say target 3mi in 45min every day. At that point it should have taken you probably 6 weeks or perhaps more to get there and you should notice a good improvement. From there you can discuss with your Doc if you want to push to higher work loads. ...Read more
Is walking on a treadmill at a incline of 8-9 with a speed of 3.5 for 40 minutes better than running at a speed of 5.5 with a incline of 1 for 25 min?
Will exercising laid down on a recumbent bike for 30-45mins at 140-160bpm Age 23, male. 4-6 times per week get my endurance up? I want to be VERY fit.
Keep up the regular: exercise but you may want to vary the type of exercise and intensity while incorporating not only cardiovascular workouts of various types with periods of increased intensity during each workout but also include some weight training and flexibility while avoiding overuse injury by being very repetitive or rapidly getting onto an exercise routine without proper planning. Speak to your physician. ...Read more
