today, an old boxer's running programme carried out early in the morning when glycogen ( sp?) stores are low and so aids fat burning. It creates a metabolism spike that lasts until about midday   1

(I used to LOVE step class)

 

I've taken my share of step classes! They can be a ton of fun w/the right music and instructor. I just can't picture my buff biking buddy bopping around on a step.

 

Oh, and my diploma from the Bruni School of Alliteration is in the mail.

Step Confession

my step class was and still is taught by a man JP at the Heights Casino

His approach is very linear and not too dance-y. I did 4-5 classes a week.

I still know the words to alot of disco-ey songs :lol:

I tried the rowing machine at my gym yesterday for the first time. It was kind of weird - I felt that there should be more resistance to the movement. I tried leaning far back on the end of the stroke, to make it more of an ab workout, and it seems to have worked at least in the sense that my abs hurt a bit today.

 

Nobody seems to ever use that machine at the gym. Is it something outdated/useless? I prefer working out on the elliptical, but it's added muscle bulk to my already not-insignificant butt & thighs, which I'm not too thrilled about. :lol:

 

I like rhythmic workouts where I can find my groove and work out for an hour or so while listening to music, and for this reason the rowing machine appeals to me. Also, working abs is something I'm keen on. Should I continue with it? Any other tips? I'm still a relative gym novice.

Try decreasing the incline and possibly the resistance on the elliptical. Use it more like a treadmill.

The rowing machine is not often used at the gym for 2 main reasons... it is low to the ground and somewhat noisy- all that air whipping around. Other than that it is a GREAT full body workout.

 

good rowing info
