Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
On this whole running/walking debate....If I'm not mistaken, don't you burn a higher percentage of fat when walking? You won't burn off as much as quickly as you would if you were to run, but I'm pretty sure walking burns a higher percentage of fat.
Anyone have sporting injuries that hinder their workouts? I don't run because I did a number on my left knee and ankle over the years and running is pretty high impact. I use an elliptical machine now for indoor cardio which I think works pretty good.
Skating also is a great cardio exercise; it gets the blood going and will strengthen the legs/hips/ass. If I ever get around to it, I'll post examples of some of the power skating exercises I used to do. I could run full speed for say 10 minutes and won't get blown up, but do some of these and I'm gasping for air real quick.
