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?

    calorie counting on treadmill

    on treadmills and any other type of cardio machine they usually tell the amount of calories youve (supposedly) burned while using it. how do they come up with these measurements and how accurate are they? i wasnt wearing the pulse meter but according to my treadmill it took me 18 steps @ 3mph to burn like 2 calories.

    It's really an estimate. The general rule I read was that you burn a little over 100 calories per mile.

    I don't even think you can make an estimate like that (MWB). It would matter on the person, how much they weigh and such, agreed?

    That's what was on a runner's website. something like 100-130 cals per mile. If you are a big guy, I'd guess closer to 130, smaller closer to 100. It's just a guesstamite to give you an idea.

    Everyone is different, it is impossible to estimate that.. There are SOOOOO many different factors in determining this, it would vary from person to person..
