treadmill is harder than dvds
I've been doing TurboFire (kicking, punches, lots of jumping) and some other workouts. I've been basically aiming for an 800 calorie burn out on my HRM.
Well, I did my TurboFire workout and still needed another 300 calories burned to get to my 800 goal for the day, so I figured I'd fire up my treadmill for some more pure cardio. Set it to 3mph...and dam, I was sweating buckets. I had to stop to towel off a couple of times. This is with the air conditioner on. It felt harder than the Turbo workout...
Why would simple walking be harder than all the jumping I'm doing in Turbo Fire? I guess I need to start using my treadmill again, now I think about it, it's mostly what I used when I lost weight a couple of years ago.
