What are the benefits of running on the treadmill for a mile everyday or every other day? Also is it better to do it everyday or every other?

Yes, Of Course: Walking or an 30 min will help you burn
up about 100 calories extra, over a month this could be about 1lb. However, if the exercise makes you more hungry or if you use it as a reward to eat more, you will not lose weight at all. 1 extra slice of pizza adds
500 calories, or about 5 miles of walking or
30 min x5 or 150 min on the treadmill!

Help! Is 15 minutes of treadmill good enough exercise for one day?

Help! Is 15 minutes of treadmill good enough exercise for one day?

Government guidelines recommend at least 150 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes a week of vigorous aerobic activity. However, the truth is that with so many of us not exercising, we would applaud your 15 min a day, and encourage you to build on that over time. ...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?

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

I'm 42 years old and I am diabetic. I control it by diet. I weigh 176lbs. If I do 50 minutes of treadmill a day, will that help me lose weight?

Probably, but...: 50 minutes of cardiovascular exercise a day is a great start. It will increase your body's use of glucose and increase fitness. However, weight is a function of the number of calories you take in as well as those you burn. If you increase the amount you eat because you work-up an appetite you may not lose weight. A healthy diet is an important part of the process. Remember to talk to your pcp! ...Read more

Great but go slow: You may have the incline too high on the treadmill. This is great but as with anything if you start with a bang and overdo it you may not be able to sustain it. Take an ibuprofen for the soreness but keep up the good work! ...Read more

Is it possible to lose a pound in 20 minutes on the treadmill?

Is it possible to lose a pound in 20 minutes on the treadmill?

Yes--by sweating off: You will not be able to lose 3500 calories (value of 1lb) in 20 min of exercises on the treadmill, but you can certainly lose a pound or more from sweating. Wearing sweat pants/shirts/hood and running hard for 20 min will cause much sweating and losing a pound is easy, but this is only water--which will reaccumulate when you drink fluid. Losing real wt is hard work! Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

I am 68 and use a treadmill for 2 hours per day, is that healthy?

That is incredible!!: I don't hear that too often these days--doing 2 hours worth of exercise/day at age 68 is awesome. You actually answered your own question. If you are not healthy, you won't be able to do that for 2 hours. I am beaten by nearly 30 yrs and I don't think I can last 2 hrs on the treadmill--hope I can do 1/2 of that at 68. Keep up the good work--i can see u beating 100 yr mark. Good luck. ...Read more

I'm 5'5 wg 173lbs. Do treadmill for 10 min at 2mph 3x a day no incline. And try to watch what I eat. How many lbs can I lose in a wk by doing that?

It's in the numbers!: If you count calories faithfully, and track the amount you exercise for 1 week, then cut your calories by 100 cal a week you will lose 1 pound a week, generally. Cut by 300 calories, 3 lbs a week, with that regimen. If you don't count calories you will never understand how you got overweight, or lose weight when you try. Avoid high protein diets.

Eat less: You can lose weight by eating about 1200 to 1500 cal per day. Exercise helps, but if you exercise too much, you will gain muscle and not lose as much weight. Eat small healthy low fat meals and go for walks or a 30 minute daily workout. ...Read more

Low blood pressure: Systolic blood pressure (the top number) less than 100 is pretty common among healthy young women. Diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number) of 35 is quite low. If you have symptoms from this (such as dizzy, lightheaded, or fainting) then it should be checked out. A cardiologist would want to know if there are other medical problems, diet habits, and if there are heart valve issues. ...Read more
