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

    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.

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

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

    We got this from a family member. I was really excited about it at first, because I needed it to tone and trim my legs during the winter months.

    0 4/5 Joan of Arc (Kansas) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: US Weight F0105E- 105-Pound Weight Set with Dumbbells (Sports) This weight set consists of a regular length hollow bar (which comes in two pieces and you beat together), and two shorter bars. There are also clips to hold the weights on the end of each bar. There are two 20lb plates, four 10lb plates, and four 5lb plates. The plates fit both the longer bar and the shorter bars. The plates are nothing fancy - plastic, filled with concrete most likely, but weights are weights and they work well for me. The clips hold them fairly well (a little looser than a solid bar and actual solid plates (rather than filled plastic) but still effective.My only complaint (that I overlooked when ordering) is that there are no 2.5lb weights, so in order to go up or down on weight, you have to go a whole 10lbs up or 10lbs down since the smallest weights are 5lbs and you need one on each side to keep it even.Overall, though, this weight set works well for me. It is nothing fancy, but it gets the job done. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 18, 2011
