What Is An Average Speed For Running On A Treadmill For A Beginner
What is the benefit of going for a long run the day after a race or an intense strength/speed workout?
Not for recovery: It is a myth that a recovery workout will help your recover faster. But, some people say still do it because you are pushing yourself when your body is already tired. There is evidence of benefits of exercise in the so called "fatigued state", but for the casual athlete these benefits may be minimal. ...Read more
Depends on speed: It depends on the speed and weight but as a rule you will burn the least calories by walking a mile and most if you bicycle at fast pace.You can actually calculate the number of calories burnt based on your speed and weight. ...Read more
Not for sprinting: It would certainly increase your endurance. But i would not recommend sprinting on a treadmill. It's too easy to misstep and fall hard. In cold weather, sprinting in a gymnasium would be preferable. A coach or fitness trainer may be able to show you some mechanical aspects of sprinting that could help you with speed. ...Read more
Yes, usually: Depends on the type of injury.I recommend non weight bearing activities such as: swimming, cycling, rowing and lifting weights(sitting or lying position only).Use a floatation device in swimming to keep weight off. Stay in the saddle with cycling. Sometimes these can aggravate the foot, start slowly. Many times you don't know you are overdoing until you have already overdone it. Be careful.

What would be a good jogging pace for a 56 yr old man looking for cardiovascular health benefits? And how many miles per day?
Highly variable: Pace and distance are highly variable among runners, depending on their experience level, goals, desire, prior injuries/orthopedic conditions and conditioning level. I would recommend you start gradually, perhaps at a pace of 9-11 minutes per mile and 1-3 miles on non-consecutive days. You can increase your distance 10-20%/week and consider a goal of decreasing your pace/mile by 30 seconds/month. ...Read more
What is more effective for a fit body aerobics or running....And if its running then how many kilometers in a day if a wantbto loose 5kg in one month?
Hard to say.: Some would argue that low impact aerobics is better. There are about 7900 kcal in 1 kg of fat and one is able to burn about 600 kcal/hour. So about 13 hours of fairly intense jogging to burn 1 kg. To lose 5 kg would be 65 hours. If you wish to do this in a month we are talking about jogging 2 hours per day and eating less. This is a very ambitious goal. ...Read more
Either: Both walking and biking produce positive cardiovascular changes. The magnitude of this positive effect is based on the intensity, which can be measured by heart rate, and duration. Shoot for 30min of moderately vigorous exercise most days of the week, as recommended by ACSM, ACA. Heart rate target should be 60-85% of estimated max heart rate (start lower and work up over time). Good luck! ...Read more
Often nonurgent: The urgency of pacemaker implantation depends on the severity of the underlying slow heart rhythm it is aimed at treating. It's rare that slow heart rates are so profound as to cause dangerously low blood pressures, but obviously if that is the case it is an emergency. Many times the symptoms are mild, and one can schedule it electively within a few days to a week. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It varies: While many jogging stroller manufacturers recommend your child should be at least 6 months old, others recommend waiting until the baby is at least 8 months old.
