can I join in this one........i was reading the chat about the heart rate monitors - i've got one of these. Its a Polar FT4 with chest strap and about 60 off amazon. It has made a massive difference to the way I do exercise! I did buy a cheap one off amazon which was just a watch with a pulse rate monitor on and it was rubbish.......whatever you do, get one with a chest strap they are far more accurate!anyway, this weeks exercise:Sunday - ran 5kmmonday - rest daytuesday - ran 5.66kmweds - swim x 30 mins (40 laps of pool)thurs - walked to school and back (40mins) and kettlefit classfriday - runsaturday - rest dayphew - its thursday and I am knackered!! lost 3lbs at class on Weds so it is paying off!! especially when i go overboard at the weekends........

Melanie how many cals do you burn roughly in a class, I am around a size 18 at the moment and was burning around 1000 cals in a combat class, I thought that seems rather excessive!!!Well next weeks plans for me...Monday - Pump & CombatTues - SpinWed - either Pilates/Pump then combat - also going to maybe brave going to the health suite afterwards for a nice sauna EEK!Thurs - Attack and Pump if I don't go on WedFri - might go to the gym for a little run on the treadmill :)Determined next week I am going to stick to going to the gym for the full week (week days at least!)

I am a 14-16, 5ft 3in and currently weigh 11st 9lbs - I burn about 400 cals in my Kettlefit class and can burn from 400-500 in an hour in the gym doing 30 mins cardio and 30 mins weights. If I do an outdoor run its about 370/380 for 30-40 mins. I do find that the machines in the gym are out by 30-50 cals (higher!) than my HRM says.

Well ladies I finally bit the bullet and joined the gym this week!! There is a ladies only gym that has recently opened up in the next street to me so there was no excuses really!!! My membership covers the 30min circuit, treadmills, bikes, rowing machines etc and the vibroplates. Classes are extra. At the moment they have advised me to leave the vibroplates for another few weeks because I had an operation in February, just incase. So I've been doing the circuit and I must say I'm loving it :2thumbs: This week:Monday: Weigh In DayTuesday: Induction at GymWednesday: Circuit at GymThursday: 30min walk up the park with the dogFriday: Circuit at GymSaturday: RestSunday: 30min walk up the park with the dogNext week:Monday: Weigh In DayTuesday: Walk/Circuit at GymWednesday: Circuit at GymThursday: Circuit at GymFriday: RestSaturday: Circuit at Gym, Walk With DogSunday: Rest

Thanks for the info, mines just seems so rediculous compared to yours! It's not even like I've just started the classes I've been going for 2years so when I said that I was burning 1000 cals in my combat class I thought it was quite a bit out! Lynsey, well done on biting the bullet :)

Managed my run last night - 40 mins. Had to keep stopping and starting though as I took my 5 year old with me- he was on his bike. He's only just learned to go it without stabilisers and stills needs some help up the hills!!Still - I burned 350 cals though!Must have a rest day today as my legs are telling me "NO!!!" and i've got kettlefit tomorrow :woot:

Afraid I didn't make it to the gym last week :shucks: My hubby was backshift so he had the car, I walked home from work every day and ended up with sore legs. Apparently walking in flat pumps isn't good for your legs and someone suggested it sounded like I had shin splints :confused: Have made an executive decision and took the car this week so I'll be alrite to go to the gym!Monday: Weigh In Day (not looking forward to it!!)Tuesday: GymWednesday: GymThursday: GymFri-Sun: Rest, My best friend is coming up for the weekend so won't make the gym but will be out and about all weekend.
