Fitness Tip: Stay Aerobic. Burn Fat
If one of your fitness goals is to decrease body fat, it is important to monitor your exercise intensity. Body fat is best burned for energy with prolonged aerobic (with oxygen) exercise of at least 30 minutes. A good way to monitor your intensity is to maintain a “conversational pace” where you feel you are working hard but can still talk with your workout partner. If you feel you are out of breath, your intensity is too high. So, bundle up and go for a long walk and chat with your companion.
