@Rachel631:  Sounds like you need more cardio! Try using the eliptical. It’s very low impact but is great cardio.

@Rachel631:  You need to be doing longer intervals on the treadmill and elliptical. 20 mins regardless of the incline is not long enough to keep your heart rate high to burn enough calories. I guarentee your not burning the amount of calories the machine is telling you. Same thing with the elliptical…

Lose the weight. You’ll lose the fat. I wouldn’t do it through a different workout though, I would do it through diet.

 

I agree that you need to throw some cardio in there. I think you should lay off the weights a bit too. It’s hard for me to recommend anything if you need to keep it low impact– I get my cardio through running, hiking and Soca Dancing (that might be an option!). Using HIIT through swimming might be an option too.

 

You said that you only had an hour a day. What about splitting up your days instead of trying to split up your hours? Use one day for cardio, the next day for resistance. It’ll keep your body on it’s toes.

I’m not sure you’re eating enough To keep your metabolism working.

you need to lose the weight and that comes mostly through diet. I would look into that. Also, for more cardio, swimming is really good and you can really push yourself with no impact.

@Rachel631:  I only workout for an hour a day…. 4 days are dedicated just to cardio. The other two days I consentrate just on weights and toning. Maybe this would help you? I just know what is working for me. I am now down 17 lbs in just 5 weeks.

@Rachel631:  I guess I am not sure what “max” I work at. I just know my heart rate runs pretty high around 160-170 and I run approx 20 mins and walk the other 10. Then do 25 mins or more on either the bike or elliptical.

I am not trying to say my way is best, or that you don’t know what you are doing. I was just letting you know what is working for me since you wanted some suggestions.
