Default How do you log this?

Yesterday I bought WATP Walk & Firm. And its a great work out with that stretchie band. But its interval training. 5 mins toning 5 heavy cardio for a total of 30 mins. She said you can log extra exercise because of the toning. So how exactly do I log that.

While I don't have that exact Dvd, I do use one of her dvd's where there is walking inaddition to the stretchy band. I log it under "Dancing -> Aerobic, low impact" since it is more than walking. While I'm "just" walking I'm often swinging/punching my arms anyways even though she isn't.

Thats how I log her usual DVDs. But this one is interval training. It has lunges, squats, rows, biceps and a few others with the band. It equals 15 minutes of toning exercises and 15 mins moderate cardio that she said equals 2 miles. But that because of the toning we could add in other exercises as well. I am just unsure how to really log them.

I see what you mean. Without a monitor it's hard to say. There's hardly any difference between the calories burned in a 15 minute low impact aerobic session and a 15 minute sessions of either of these. Since it's such a small number difference I like to error on the low side! I burn approx 83 calories in 15 min with low impact aerobics.
  • Calisthenics (e.g. push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups), heavy, vigorous effort-I burn 72 cal/15 min
  • Weight lifting (free weight, nautilus, or universal-type), power lifting or body building, vigorous effort-I burn 103 cal/15min
Play around with it. Maybe someone who has that exact dvd and logs it will have an exact answer for you. Sounds like a great workout!

Oh yeah its a great work out. And the cardio bits are a little harder than normal. Some jogging forward and backwards. At the end I felt like I got a much better workout than with a plan 1 or 2 mile workout.

Here is the DVD but I bought mine at Wal-Mart for 9.98:

Rain, sites like Fitday, the Daily Plate and Nutridiary all allow you to log food and exercise. It's very handy!!!

(Just don't believe all the calories-burned estimates. They're fairly generous.)
