How much exercise is over exercise. I regulary cycle for 50 kms in a stationary bike .

Exercise: How much you exercise depends on your goal. If what you want is good conditioning then 30-60minutes a day of aerobic mixed in with 3 days a week of strength training is good. If you're training for distance biking, running or some other goal, then a training program specific to the goal is needed. If you're exercise beyond what you need for your goal, you could be said to be 'overexercising'. ...Read more

Rowing and cycling activities are heart friendly as well as joint friendly; good exercise for the cardiovascular system without beating up your joints.

Follow healthy diet (1200 cals), exercise 6 hrs a week (weights and cardio) but struggle 2 lose weight (hormones & insulin fine).Could it be femodene?

Possible, but: It may be that even 1200 calories is too much for you, depending upon your height. The shorter you are, the fewer calories you require. It takes 3500 calories burned off that you don't eat in order to lose one pound. You could also be calculating your calories incorrectly. Check w/a registered dietitian. ...Read more

As your jogs become easier, you can try to push it a bit faster, longer and more frequent. ...Read more

12mins intense jogging having 5min break then 5 minutes as effective as 17 minutes in one go?  Aiming for cardiovascular wellness fitness maintained weight

Yes: It's just as effective. If you exercise 20 minutes 8 times, you get the benefit of 160 minutes of exercise. It doesn't matter if you break it up or do it all at once. You could make the case that, with rest, you can exercise more effectively so breaking it up makes sense. ...Read more

Any good fitness routines to lose weight at 70?
