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

    Durable and Versatile

    0 5/5 Kenneth B. - See all my reviews This review is from: Trademark Innovations High Step Work Out Training Device (Sports) This is an extremely useful item that completely revolutionized my workout. I mostly use these for pushups and calf raises, and I can already notice the gains I've made in the past four weeks of using these risers. Also, I find it awesome that I can adjust the height of the risers as I need, which makes this a versatile tool that can be used for a variety of exercises. This is a small item that is easily stored, and is definitely worth the money. I highly recommend the seller, as the item was shipped very quickly and arrived well-packaged and in great shape. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 4, 2012

    Great price for essential workout step

    0 5/5 KaeLaVie - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Trademark Innovations High Step Work Out Training Device (Sports) I have used high steps for years for short box aerobic work and tall step ups. In fact, my original tall step was hand made by another home workout enthusiast and it last for years. When it finally started to get a bit too worn for optimum use, I started looking for a retail version and was shocked by the prices. It took me months and I stumbled across the Blue Ridge version. It is perfect. Very sturdy. Great, unique color and my Step risers fit it perfectly, even though it came with four of its own. I paid under $40 for this and I doubt that price will hold as other companies generally start at more than double that price. You can't beat this deal...trust me. I was on a mission for months to find an affordable version. Thanks for the great product at a great price! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 1, 2013

    Wonderful product, easy to stay motivated!

    I bought this mini-elliptical after reading all the reviews on this and other similar products. I bought this item for three main reasons:1 - Low price2 - Small size3 - PortabilityI like the elliptical movement because I have bad ankles, and treadmills and steppers hurt me after a short time working out. I don't have room for a full-size elliptical machine in my house, and this turned out to be the perfect size. Plus, it's small size made it easy to move around the house to be where I wanted to use it. I like to work out while watching TV to keep my mind elsewhere and work out longer, and I can pull this machine (about 25lbs) in front of the TV in the living room to watch TV with family (yes, they laugh at me, but it's worth it), and then pull in front of my bed in the bedroom to watch a chick flick that no one else wants to watch. I even put my elliptical in front of my computer to watch Netflix movies online! It's easy to carry around.Another great... 5/5 N.

    15-Day Review

    Normally, I take reviews with a grain of salt. I work in advertising, so I'm well aware that companies often hire freelancers to write positive reviews for their products in order to improve sales. That said, I figured I would write an honest review after using this elliptical trainer for about half-a-month.I received the trainer on about the 20th of September and have been using it at least every other day since. It was extremely easy to piece together (I have put together a Bowflex Treadclimber in the past, as well as a StairMaster so this was practically nothing at five parts) and even easier to use. However, the stride IS significantly shorter than that of a standard health club elliptical--after about ten minutes of using the trainer, though, I didn't even notice the short stride.I bought the trainer as an alternative to running or biking outside since the cold weather is settling in and I wanted no excuses when it came to maintaining some sort of exercise... 4/5 jneeni (Long Island, NY) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    good but not perfect

    This is a fairly compact, noiseless and easy-to-assemble machine and it does its job.The counter is placed out of the way, between your ankles, so you don't have to stare at it while exercising (unless you exercise while staring at your ankles) which to me is a plus. Also, the counter only accounts for the actual time you spend exercising, so if you go get a drink of water and return, it self-pauses, which is cool.The machine does occasionally rock slightly from side-to-side during use which I'd imagine could cause injury. Also, the machine doesn't glide easily during strides as it does on a regular elliptical; it occasionally jolts. This can be jarring, especially if you're not used to the unusually short strides on this machine. I recommend using this while you have something to stabilize yourself if this happens (I use it in a doorway)Not the best machine out there, but it's certainly affordable and easy to use, a great purchase for a small... 3/5 sgme - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Challenging, decently priced and has my heart pounding

    0 4/5 Matthew (Boston, MA US) - See all my reviews This review is from: Maxi Climber Vertical Climber AS SEEN ON TV (Misc.) I bought this product direct from the vendor. I've tested out a bit of equipment in my day, and I'm not an exercise nut but I struggle to find something which provides a decent challenge. Just received this 2 days ago, but so far it does provide a particularly challenging workout. The device isn't rock solid per-se, but it does hold up well and I'm 28 M 6'3 175lbs. I am using it on a carpet and it hasn't had any stability issues.In any case, for the $$$ this is fine. I found something else with climber in the name, looks similar but it's like $1500 and looks like some guy custom builds it.This thing gets my heart pumping and honestly it's been a bit addicting. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 19, 2014
