Re: Too much or too little exercise?
hey j mac, you're on the right track, but, try your hardest to get on your bike everyday, or swim everyday, and when you do get on your bike, gradually increase your minutes every time you ride, just push yourself everytime until you get up to 45 minutes. also, doing sprints on your bike is good to get your heartrate going. for example: warm up at a comfortable speed for 3-5 minutes, on minute 5 start your sprints: bump your speed or resistance level up a little really push it, for 2 minutes, minute 7 back to your normal speed, minute 8 push it!! minute 9 recover(normal speed) look at your minutes in intervals of 5 minutes(like above) : first 2 minutes push it!, 3rd minute recover, 4th minute push it!!, 5th minute recover, ect., ect. , ect., until you hit 20 or MORE minutes. ALSO, each time you sprint, as the intervals go on, try to put more intensity(resistance or speed) than you did the last 5 minutes. doing it it in intervals of 5 minutes might make the time go by faster for you, plus keep it interesting since you can think: alright i'm going to go harder and/or faster the next 5 minutes! anyway, just something to try. lol**
