We walk a lot – always do at least 10,000 steps and often quite a bit more each day. We like it and are sure it’s doing us good, but we’re now doing as much as we reasonably can – we just don’t have time most days to do more.
Last night we saw the MM programme The Tuth About Fitness (It was on catch up, so not sure if it’s the same programme as shown last night.) On that he said doing the High Intensity Interval Training a couple of times a week was as good as longer gym sessions. My plan is to do that, as well as the walking.
In case you missed it, the idea is to jog on the spot for 1 minute to warm up, rest, do star jumps for 1 minute, rest, squats for 1 minute, rest, sprint on the spot for 1 minute, rest, squats, rest, star jumps. Each exercise is done as hard and fast as possible.
