Increase in Activity for Greater Results
Hi guys, another question for you more experienced Groks:
I have finally set a hard goal for myself, 20lbs in 5 months, and now that my eating is dialed back into appropriate Primal form, I need to set my exercise correctly. I know there are a hundred and one requests for "check my [insert life habit here]" every day, but you all are really the best feedback for everything Primal. My current exercise plan (directed, as Mark prefers, by daily energy changes) per week is:
2 hours of walking.
1 abbreviated bodyweight session at home.
1 full weight session at the gym (Going to re-incorporate of few things I learned from my body building stint).
1 7-15 minute sprint session.
Now I'm still working on a "play" day. I have one pretty bad knee (that is improving as I lose weight), so regular sports, etc aren't in the cards yet. I might end up sucking it up, buying a swimsuit and hitting the gym pool (swimming is fun to me).
But considering my short term goals for the end of 5 months, should I increase my exercise volume? I will say that whatever I manage to lose in that time is fine, I just want to feel better, be a little bit lighter, and really strengthen my knees for my upcoming plans.
**I eat between 1000-1500 calories a day, depending on how hungry I am, if that's helpful. 5' 1".
Thank you for any advice/thoughts/ideas/criticisms in advance!
