Aerobics: What kind how how long how how often?
In the the the last issue of of this segment I I stressed the importance of meal plans My recom- mendations came largely from the meal plans suggested in Bill Reynolds book Sliced For Two Reasons The first reason is because those meals plans work Secondly I’ve found none better and as I mentioned before most of today’s meal plan gurus are using some form of his plan Now the questions that I will will focus on on on today will will be about aerobics: what kind how how long and how how often When I I first began training there were dozens of different opinions floating around I I gained a a a a a a a a a great deal of of information on on on the the the the topic by following the the the the advice found in in in in in the the the the the fitness magazines magazines of of of the the the the the time It was suggested by many of of these magazines magazines to run for for forty minutes twice a a a a day I I later met one the greatest natural bodybuilders of all time time who told me me me me that I I should cut my running time time in in half and walk instead It didn’t take much for me to accept his his suggestion because just by looking at at at his his body and comparing it it tomine IknewthatIhadtogiveitatry BUT asIdo with all theories I I I I I I decided to to to test it it it it first The following are the the results that I I I received after giving it it it a a a a a a try as I I I have have used this method with clients of all ages over my personal training career as well and have have never failed to get positive results:
