No real exercise!: Although time in a sauna may feel good and relax your muscles, the increasing sweating truly depletes your body of fluid and electrolytes. It would not be a good idea either before or after working out. Better to do it after a great massage or before a nice long evening together.

Is a 30 min walk as good as a vigorous 15 min bike ride with high intensity intervals? I'd like to find the quickest and easiest form of exercise.

Is a 30 min walk as good as a vigorous 15 min bike ride with high intensity intervals? I'd like to find the quickest and easiest form of exercise.

Either: Training is used for multiple purposes. While many exercise experts and trainers advocate high intensity short interval training with frequent variation to improve strength and endurance, walking for cardiac aerobic training often aims to push the heart rate to a certain aerobic target (65-80% of maximum predicted hr = 220-age). Depends on your goals therefore. Always try to push the envelope. ...Read more
