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

After heart surgery I had to get myself back in shape but slowly, this stepper is just what I needed to get started, a 30x 11 surface, It seems quite strong and a very a very good beginning start. Price is right, and I've noticed the maximum weight is 200 pds. which makes it just right for me. I'm 60 now, was in very good shape until the surgery and I just kind of gave up. Has 4 risers, 6" and 8" are just right for me Got to start somewhere, I plan on living a long time. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 5, 2014

    Selling Used Stuff as NEW

    0 1/5 Capo - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Soozier 30" Aerobic Step / Fitness Stepper w/ 4 Risers (Misc.) Received the Step and it was definitely USED when posted as NEW. When tried returning, immediately they asked to give me a discount instead of returning it. The Step was broken and scratched. Inevitably, they made right by allowing me to return it with them paying shipping but was definitely a game on how they handled this. The Step was old and believe it was a game on purpose to see if they could get me to keep it with a discount. Unfortunately, even though they allowed me to return it, I was not happy with the product and ordeal going through it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 27, 2014

    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

    Great Portable Workout, but limit to 10-15 mins???

    I just received the twist stepper today, and I thought Id write a quick review on my first impression.Pros:-Looks Fairly well made and Sturdy-The arm straps are adjustable, and they give excellent resistance-The stepping resistance is adjustable and gives a really good workout-The computer turns on and off automaticallyCons:-The step feels like baby steps. Not horrible, but worth noting-The instructions say to limit workouts to 10-15 mins??? WTH?Im assuming thats to prevent a heat build up from friction, but 15 mins?It seems like a good buy and will do exactly what I want it to do. I want to workout every day with enough resistance to maintain my body weight. Its portable enough that I can use it in any room, so chances are I will end up using it very regularly. Thanks for reading!**UPDATE**I emailed sunny health and fitness about the 15 minute time limit on work outs. They told me that the... 4/5 A. A. Eheander - See all my reviews, September 21, 2012

    0 5/5 A. Portsmouth (North Dakota, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sunny Health & Fitness Twister Stepper (Health and Beauty) Very short version to a really long, awful story: I was dumped and I tried to eat my way out of it.In the end, all I ended up with was still dumped and now sitting on a size 18 rear end. Not good.So I ordered this little stepper.Listen to me here...this is the important part. IT WORKS!I actually have two now. One at home and one at work. I make it a necessity to use it for a minimum of 10 minutes every hour -- no matter what. You don't have to get on it and use it for 45 minutes straight -- although, that's an awesome workout, too. Just get on it and use it consistently.I started this 30 days ago. And now I'm sitting on a size 12 rear end with size 8 straight ahead, directly in my sights! Every step counts. Every step is YOU moving toward your goal -- whatever that may be.Buy it. Oh, and you should buy a can of WD-40, too. If you use it as much as you should, the shocks will need some lubricating. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 20, 2013
