Severely obese, will I lose more weight if I only eat half my calorie allowance like 1000 and still work on my treadmill 20 mins a day?
Need both: If your appropriate calorie intake is 2000 calories/day, reducing this by 500 calories/day will result in weight loss of a pound/week (3500 calories=one pound) Cutting more calories will result in more weight loss. BUT, cutting too low, & 1000 calories per day is near the too low point, may lower your metabolic rate and curtail weight loss. Burning calories through exercise will also be necessary ...Read more
After having several heart attacks and being obese I decide to buy a treadmill but when I run I get splitting shin pain how do I fix this?
You need new or: Different shoes that will help properly line up your foot, ankle and knees in order not to strain this area. My best advice is to go to a specialty store, specializing in marathon/ long distance running gear. Have your feet evaluated, then purchase the brand of running shoe that fits your feet properly, then get on that treadmill and start slow! ...Read more
Use DVDs: You've got a terrific start with all that equipment! I'm a huge fan of p90, p90x and related dvds as they are holistic and cycle through resistance, aerobic and endurance workouts. Dbs and a mat should be more than enough. The treadmill for climbing (spare the joints!) can provide some variety to your aerobic training. With a small tv monitor and dvd player you're "in business! ". ...Read more

How long do I need to spend on the treadmill to loose weight - female, 86kg, 162 cm in height I've been doing all sorts of workouts nothing is workin?
Depends: An excellent recent study showed that weight loss slows metabolism, not increases it. Accordingly, exercise does burn calories, but far fewer than most people expect. However, interval training is good for the heart and mind so don't forgo it. ...Read more
I want to lose a wieght so which is a best exercise machine to buy at home workout treadmill cycle or elliptical plz tell thanx?
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
A treadmill workout of no inclination, 6kmh speed for 1hour 4 times a week is enough as a start for a 19 years old female 1.64m tall with weight 77 km?
Good start: Walking an hour a day on a treadmill is a good way to start exercising but will probably get boring very quickly. Instead, once you're comfortable walking, consider shortening your treadmill time to just 30min while alternating fast sprints w/slow recovery speeds. Use remaining 30min to work on muscle strength, flexibility & balance. High intensity interval training is key buzzword now. Good luck! ...Read more

Since 1 mnth I am doing 10 min Elliptical & 20 mins Treadmill workput daily. My periods used to b timely, now its late by a day. Is workout stressful?
Relationship - not!: Ably do. Really doubt that there's a relationship. The exercise amounts you describe are very moderate and sound like a good thing as long as you do them correctly and if you've not had pain in joints or muscles - you probably do. The possibility of your thyroid condition being involved is greater, but also not much. If you're concerned, have an exam. Best! ...Read more

Is using the stair master better than treadmill? I always feel like I get a better workout on stairs than on tread and I'm close to my max heart rate.
Depends: This depends on you and how you use the respective machines. Each machine has its benefits and detriments. For either machine you can get a very good work out by either increasing resistance, speed, steps/mins, or inclination. Just know that treadmills involve more weight bearing and can be "tougher" on certain peoples joints. Listen to your body and it doesn't hurt to monitor your heart rate! ...Read more
Will drinking coffee before a workout session increase your heart rate significantly? I was running on treadmill at a 6.5 and my HR was 180. Normal?
Last month have a on/off dull ache near left chest heart/armpit/pect. Healthy and workout moderately. Recently passed a treadmill stress test? Golfer
Likely muscle: A negative stress test is about 90% accurate, depending on the type of stress test you had. So, with 90% certainty, your chest discomfort is not from your heart. You may have strained a muscle with your golf swing. However, if your symptoms are made worse with exertion, and progressive, let your doc know, as further testing may be required. ...Read more
I've been getting right knee pain during leg workouts - esp lunges and during/after time on a treadmill. Advil or aleve (naproxen)? Ice or heat? Suggestions
Why do you have pain: The real question is why do you have pain, especially if it is recurrent. Ice is always the best choice for musculoskeletal problems. A short course of an advil (ibuprofen) like medication may be ok. If this does not resolve with rest and simple measures you should have an orthpedic surgeon or sports medicine md examine you. ...Read more
