Is this enough exercise? Need advice please?

I use a twist stepper mainly as it's the most easiest when everyone's home (twist stepper is like a step machine but it has a little twist to it haha) I do that for Atleast 10 minutes each session, and I aim to do it atleast twice a day. I vary between normal pace and fast pace, definitely makes me sweat and legs feel weak haha. I also always do the plank ab exercise for atleast 2 minutes a day. I walk everywhere I can wherever I can. Is this enough exercise to maintain a healthy lifestyle? I don't eat much (bad I know) but does the exercise sound ok. For extra info I'm 17, 5'8 and weigh about 130 lbs. Thanks xx


You really should be doing more cardio if possible and some light weight training. Check this out I came across this and it's designed for home workouts. The planks are really good a strong core is essential and you really need to eat more. http://www.bodyrock.tv/

About this book
The Microchip PIC family of microcontrollers is the most popular series of microcontrollers in the world. However, no microcontroller is of any use without software to make it perform useful functions. This comprehensive reference focuses on designing with Microchip's mid-range PIC line using MBASIC, a powerful but easy to learn programming language. It illustrates MBASIC's abilities through a series of design examples, beginning with simple PIC-based projects and proceeding through more advanced designs. Unlike other references however, it also covers essential hardware and software design fundamentals of the PIC microcontroller series, including programming in assembly language when needed to supplement the capabilities of MBASIC. Details of hardware/software interfacing to the PIC are also provided.BENEFIT TO THE READER: This book provides one of the most thorough introductions available to the world's most popular microcontroller, with numerous hardware and software working design examples which engineers, students and hobbyists can directly apply to their design work and studies. Using MBASIC, it is possible to develop working programs for the PIC in a much shorter time frame than when using assembly language.* Offers a complete introduction to programming the most popular microcontroller in the world, using the MBASIC compiler from a company that is committed to supporting the book both through purchases and promotion* Provides numerous real-world design examples, all carefully tested* CD contains the source code files and executables, and will include a demo version of the MBASIC compiler, allowing engineers to work out the design exercises in the book

    0 3/5 Jonathan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sunny Health & Fitness Twister Stepper with Handle Bar (Health and Beauty) I bought this thing to be low impact and help get me active to lose some weight. I use it for 20minutes a day M-F. I'm averaging 85 steps a minute. When I bought it I was at 320 LBs with the doctor approved goal of 250 LBs. I'm a big muscular guy.Week 1: 315Week 2: 314Week 3: 308Week 4: 304Week 5: 303Week 6: 299All in all I'm pretty happy with my results.The size of the thing is pretty small and its really light and easy to move around with 1 hand. It took less than 10 minutes to put together.Edit: The thing broke 2 weeks after I wrote this review. The metal bar on the right pedal snapped in 2. When it happened I was not injured. I just now saw the comments asking about how sturdy this is. I don't blame the equipment because I'm a big guy. While this thing was quick and a good start it didn't last long (2 months). But it got me motivated to do what I needed which was start exercising. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 25, 2012

    Great machine...while it lasts

    0 3/5 Smirnoff - See all my reviews This review is from: Sunny Health & Fitness Twister Stepper with Handle Bar (Health and Beauty) Hubby purchased this as a surprise for my birthday! OMG, I lost 7 pounds in one week from working out on this little machine. The size was perfect, the work out great. I got so I was looking forward to my first thing in the morning 800 on this as I caught up on the morning news.Sadly, it broke yesterday. The bolt that holds the cable to the fly wheel broke. We cannot find a part that matches it. Sunny Health and Fitness did respond promptly to my email but seem to be giving me the run around with requests to send a picture of the broken bolt...well measure the bolt, do you have the recpt? Scan it and send that to us.The recpt. was thrown away when we got this as the place we got it from will NOT refund for any reason at all.Needless to say, I will get another stair stepper...just not this brand nor at places like Marukai that will not be flexible with customers. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 29, 2011

    GREAT BEGINNER WORKOUT

    0 5/5 SHARON70 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Absolute Beginners Fitness: Step and Dance Aerobics Workout for Weight Loss & Toning (DVD) I love this dvd. 20 years ago I was in the gym taking step aerobics 4 days a week. Let me be honest, life has gotten in the way of me working out. And, I needed a workout program that was something fun; yet, had just enough impact to get my heart pumping without making me feel fat, out of shape, and eventually defeated.. This dvd has me on the path to fitness. And, the steps/workout wasn't so difficult that I had trouble keping up. I was able to watch the dvd once and, then jump right into the workout. It was just that simple. I will definietly look for Nekea Brown's name when searching for more workout dvd's. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 18, 2011

    Needs Coolant!!!

    I really wish this came with instructions. Without them I ruined my bit in 5 minutes. After ruining it I looked up how I should have used it. Ideally this should be used in a drill press with a constant flow of coolant. However, if you are cutting a keg (like I am) with a hand drill then you must only cut 15-20 seconds at a time, wait 60 seconds, wipe the old oil off and add more oil, repeat. Never let the bit get hotter then you can touch. Second never run the drill quickly, slow as you can. Fast apparently can heat the SS fast enough to harden it.The final note I found is never use a steel file or brush on stainless steel. If you do it will embed little microscopic bits of stainable steel in the stainless and will cause rust. De-burr with either a stainless steel file or sand paper.I know all this is stupid obvious to anyone who works with metal, but judging by the reviews most of the people buying this are brewers not metal smiths. Oh well $14 lesson learned, hopefully... 3/5 N. Cody (San Francisco, CA USA) - See all my reviews, July 30, 2013

    It got the job done!

    0 5/5 Multiplier (SMV, CO USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Neiko Titanium Step Drill Bit - 1/4" to 1-3/8" in 1/8" Increments, 10 Steps (Tools & Hardware) I needed to drill a 1-3/8" hole in a stainless steel kitchen sink (not sure of the thickness, but it was a heavier gauge than some of the less expensive sinks I've seen) for an instant hot water device. I had another step bit that wouldn't touch it. This one did the job, albeit with some time and effort. I started with a 1/8" bit and worked up to 3/8" or 1/2" (I forget which) before using the step bit. Then, I drilled one step at a time using liberal amounts of cutting oil, it cut slower as the hole got bigger which makes sense as it was working harder to remove more material. The key to the job was letting the sink and bit cool down between steps (cool water helped speed up the process and also kept the sink from warping). I had my wife drizzle oil on the bit/sink while I drilled - messy but effective. Bit seems to have survived just fine, still feels nice and sharp. As an aside, we love the instahot, too - it was worth the effort! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 7, 2009
