Checkpoint: Three Day Activity Analysis
1.) What everyday changes (if any) can you make to increase the amount of energy expended in your day-to-day activities? What I noticed in my physical activity report was that what I do everyday does not need to be modified or changed. Bicycling in a moderate speed with a little bit of resistance for 35 minutes is ideal for my height and weight. During the week I burn a total of 1555 calories. 2.) What types and amounts of exercise would work best for you? I like bicycling versus running, I like being able to travel farther distances and take different routes, when I jog or run I can only go so far and I do not like the impact of the concrete on my shins. I feel that I get a better workout when I bike at a good speed with a little resistance. 3.) Can the activities be performed year round? If not, can you suggest alternative activities and locations for inclement weather? Where I live it does not get very cold or even snow during the winter so I can bike year round, it does get chilly so I would need to wear ideal gear to keep warm. In the summer time, summers are very hot so I usually wait until the evening time to bike when it is cooler. If by some chance, the weather is not up to par, I have the option of taking spin classes at our local gym or riding the bike or treadmill inside the gym.
