I'm getting back to my workout routine after a long hiatus while I nursed a nasty cold and lingering cough. I am focusing on increasing the intensity of my workouts. I don't see how I can possibly devote any more time; I usually get to the gym 4 or 5 times a week and workout for about an hour and 20 minutes each session. So I am trying to ramp up the intensity to increase the calorie burn off rate. I've increased the incline on the treadmill for my walking workout, and lengthened the amount of time I spend at the most intense speed/incline combo while spending a shorter time in the middle speed before I begin the cooldown. So far, so good. Although it didn't appear to make an impact on this week's weight loss stats!
