so i've been working out on the treadmill for about three weeks and walking for about 30 minutes a day. the lady at the gym told me i should start either increasing the intensity at which i walk or walk for a longer amount of time. so my question is really intensity related,
when upping intensity is it better speed up the rate at which i walk, or make the incline higher? i find when i up the speed i have a hard time keeping up. i carry the bulk of my weight in my thighs, so it's almost like my big legs can only go so fast. however i can up the incline quite a bit and still get a good workout in and feel fabulous after. granted i get that burn in my thighs, but that just means i'm actually working those muscles, which is something i havent done in awhile. also i know the little calorie counter on the treadmill isnt accurate, but it seems to show that more calories are burned when increasing the incline rather than speed. so am i right here? can i get by on just upping the incline until i lose some significant weight?
