Is my gym coach being fair?
Hello, I have lost about 11 kilos on a low carbohydrate diet with a little moderate exercise (walking every other day, sometimes doing 20-30 mins on the elliptical).
Lately my weight loss has slowed down, I have been loosing about 1 kilo a week, and now I am either staying the same or loosing about half a kilo a week.
So I decided to join a gym, and from the first day my coach assigned me a 50 minute interval treadmill routine, with walking briskly most of the time then doing sprints.
Needless to say after 30 mins I felt like giving up, I stepped off of the treadmill and he started shouting I was being lazy!
Am I really supposed to jump into that kind of cardio after doing such easy exercising for so long?
AND this is the more important question, if I start at 50 mins of running/walking wont I have to increase it let us say a month from now? And keep increasing it? And after I lose weight and going at this rate of running wont I have to run 90 mins to maintain it?!
I'm a college student I neither have time nor energy to exercise that long!, I really don't know at how many cardio minutes should I start and how much should I increase each week, and last but not least should I increase cardio after I lost weight to maintain my new weight?.
ps: English is not my mother language so I probably have some grammatical mistakes
