  • I don't understand how "time can be cumulative" if it takes 11.5 minutes for me to get my heart rate up to 55-60% of max. That sounds like a MINIMUM of 20 minutes each session (and that was work my leg muscles complained about - stationary bike, about 16mph average, interval program). I suspect that while most of my body's out of shape, my heart's just FINE and dandy... :) - 8/14/2016 8:01:43 PM
  • More workout videos please! It would be great if you had a program of workouts, 1-50, say, enumerated by difficulty and length of workout. We could do #1 for a week or so until confident, then progress to #2 etc. Some workouts especially for seniors with mobility issues pls? It would also be great if it were easier to cut straight to the workout videos without having to search around the site for them. - 5/21/2016 5:22:12 AM
  • I babysat my 2 year old grandson today for four hours and I am bushed! He runs everywhere and wants to show me every little thing there is. How I wish I could keep up with him. Mostly it was "Watch me! Watch me!" Which I did. He is such a sweetheart. - 5/13/2016 10:08:57 PM
  • This list is a good start. There are a lot more activities that are fun that can be added to it, too! But "cardio" means it is working the heart, and anything that is getting the heart pumping faster, rather than an anaerobic activity, is cardio, no matter if it's for 1 minute or 10 or 60. People who are sick or in physical therapy/recovery from serious illness have to start with very tiny steps to slowly build up, but those are STILL cardio, and still matter. You have to learn to crawl before you can walk. If you can't even do 2 minutes of sustained activity with your heart, you shouldn't feel bad and give up. "Cardio" is anything that works the heart - even gently that does not reach a certain target rate if your doctor does not recommend it - for whatever length of time you can do. Be proud if you did 30 seconds more than you could last week - that's progress! - 3/21/2016 7:33:49 PM
  • Great option to selection from to accumulate 30 or more minutes of cardio stimulating activities. - 3/13/2016 4:03:53 AM
  • Lots of choices here, today I did two 30 min HIITs one for lower and one for upper body. Not easy! - 3/11/2016 12:58:26 PM
  • You gave us plenty of choices. And variety, so I think it will keep us busy. Thank you for this article. - 2/8/2016 10:37:26 PM
  • The list is impressive, but try to find some correlation between the activity and the amount of benefit as a fitness activity anywhere on the internet for some of them. My guess is that some of these activities could be harmful over a long period of time. I know one house painter who developed carpal tunnel. - 1/12/2016 10:03:00 PM
  • Love the reminder of all the great options for cardio!! Thanks, think I will print them out!! :) - 1/1/2016 7:24:33 PM
  • I have to start slow, should I up my workout by 5 min a week or more. Right now I am at 20-30 min through out the day. - 11/7/2015 2:07:15 PM
  • I can't work out the same as ten years ago, but I can't make the mistake of not trying. - 10/7/2015 9:26:43 AM
  • It would be nice if the people who write these articles would remember that not everyone can get their heart rate into any of the target zones. People who are on beta blockers fall into this category. The drug kicks in and suppresses the heart rate. I was on a beta blocker for several years, and there was no way I could get my heart rate anywhere near the target zone, and I worked out. - 10/1/2015 10:45:08 AM
  • It's important to revise our targeted heart rate numbers as we 'mature..... my THR at age 62 is a lot lower than it was at age 32 . . . . just saying...

    Keep that ol' ticker healthy! - 9/28/2015 1:09:45 PM
  • I've become more active and more aware of my goals and i'm finding more ways to stay fit and eat healthy taking advice and being my best cheerleader - 9/5/2015 7:34:14 PM
  • I did a mile of WATP and this afternoon took a brisk walk to the supermarket and back. - 8/29/2015 12:38:03 AM
