Remember that proper nutrition and adequate rest are essential for successful results. mum fat burning, adjust the intensity of your exercise until your heart rate is near the middle number in your training zone as you exercise. Aerobic Exercise WARNING: Before beginning If your goal is to strengthenyour cardiovascular system, your exercise must be "aerobic." Aerobic exercise is activity that requires large amounts of oxygen for prolonged pedods of time. This increases the demand on the heart to pump bloodto the muscles, and on the lungs to oxygenate the blood. For aerobic exercise, adjust the intensity of your exercise until your heart rate is near the highest number in your training zone. this or any exercise program, consult your physician. This is especially important for persons over the age of 35 or persons with pre-existing health problems. EXERCISE INTENSITY Whether your goal is to bum fat or to strengthen your cardiovascular system, the key to achieving the desired results is to exercise with the proper intensity. The proper intensity level can be found by using your heart rate as a guide. The chart below shows recommended heart rates for fat burning, maximum fat burning, and cardiovascular (aerobic) exercise. 165 155 145 140 130 125 115 145 138 130 125 118 110 103 125 120 115 110 105 95 90 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HEART RATE To measure your heart rate, first exercise for at least four minutes. Then, stop exercising and place two fingers on your wdst as shown. Take a sixsecond heartbeat count, and multiply the result by 10 to find your heart rate. For example, if your six-second heartbeat count is 14, your heart rate is 140 beats per minute. (A sixsecond count is used because your heart rate will drop rapidly when you stop exercising.) To find the proper heart rate for you, first find your age at the bottom line of the chart (ages are rounded off to the nearest ten years). Next, find the three numbers above your age. The three numbers are your "training zone." The lowest number is the recommended heart rate for fat burning;the middle number is the recommended heart rate for maximum fat burning;the highest number is the recommended heart rate for aerobic exercise. WORKOUT GUIDELINES Each workout should include the following three pads: A warm-up, consisting of 5 to 10 minutes of stretching and light exercise. A proper warm-up increases your body temperature, heart rate, and circulationin preparation for exercise. Training zone exercise, consisting of 20 to 30 minutes of exercisingwith your heart rate in your training zone. Note: During the first few weeks of your exercise program, do not keep your heart rate in your training zone for longer than 20 minutes. Fat Burning To burn fat effectively, you must exercise at a relatively low intensity level for a sustained period of time. During the first few minutes of exercise, your body uses easily accessible carbohydrate calories for energy. Only after the first few minutes of exemise does your body begin to use stored fat calories for energy. If your goal is to bum fat, adjust the intensityof your exemise until your heart rate is near the lowest number in your training zone as you exercise. For maxi- A cool-down, with 5 to 10 minutes of stretching. This will increase the flexibility of your muscles and will help to prevent post-exercise problems. 11 EXERCISE FREQUENCY workouts.After a few months of regular exercise, you may complete up to five workouts each week, if desired.
