For Fat Burning-Just Keep Moving!!! Go For Time Instead Of Distance Or Intensity


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

No matter what type cardio I am doing-I just keep moving...even if I have to slow it down from a jog to a very slow walk. I started going for time (one hour) instead of distance or intensity. I tell myself to be the last one on the track. Often i get a second wind a can jog more later on

Once I started doing over an hour of cardio (running/walking/jogging) I started seeing a difference around my waistline.

    I have heard this before on an old exercise tape, going for LSD. (long slow distance) I like this approach because it is more manageable for me. Thanks for the reminder! emoticon

    There's a reason the Tortoise beat the Hare in their famous race. The Tortoise was smarter! And so are you. Thanks for the great advice.
