The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Is this really Cardio?

    OK, bear with me. I'm an old man and jogging isn't something I want to try. OK, only 48 but I fell older when I try to run.

    Every morning first thing I take a walk. It is a brisk walk up and down a steep hill near my house. It take about 5 minutes to do a lap from top to bottom and back again. Each lap, I am defintely sucking wind near the top on the steepest incline. So I am walking fast, not strolling. I do 8 laps a day and spend about 45 minutes total from house to hill and back.

    Does this count as cardio? Do I need to do jogging or something else to truly drop weight and improve stamina?

    Sure it is. Just continue to build up the intensity gradually and you'll be jogging in no time.

    walking is very effective cardio

    jogging burns more cals

    most of the pro's walk for cardio in the weeks before a contest

    Actually, I've been doing it a while and it doesn't seem to get any easier. As to jogging, I think I might need a better pair of shoes to ease the impact.

    Thanks. I'll stay with it. At least until I get down below 190.
