How much weight can I loose in 3 months by walking 30 minutes on treadmill at 4.7 km/hr or by running 30 minutes on treadmill at 7 km/hr ?

Not Sure: I'm not sure about the weight loss relationship to your walking or running, but I am certain that the correct amount of exercise and the type of exercise best suited to your needs is whatever you will enthusiastically stick to over the long run. All too often people "burn out" chasing an exact target of minutes and speed. ...Read more

Walking and running on a treadmill for 4 mile help me lose weight or I need to do more?

Keep up the good work! ...Read more

My pulse rate hits a high of 160 when I am walking or running on a treadmill. Is this healthy?

My pulse rate hits a high of 160 when I am walking or running on a treadmill. Is this healthy?

Probably OK: Depending on your age and cardiovascular conditioning status, that may be fine. Prolonged heart rate maintenance during aerobic exercise is part of the conditioning process. Need to make sure the heart rate is regular (not skipping around) or associated with lightheadedness or inappropriate breathlessness. Getting a monitored stress test before aggressive exercise (if sedentary) prudent. ...Read more

Running or fast walking on treadmill for losing weight ? For how long daily ? & best time morning b4 or after breakfast ? Or afternoon better ? Thx :)

Treadmill walking.: I always tell people to do cardiovascular exercise before breakfast, as you'll burn much more fat calories for energy than you would if you exercise after eating. Start with 20 minutes on most days of the week and build up from there as it gets easier. ...Read more

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
