    Cardio 3x week

    Is running on a treadmill 3 days a week enough to get a good cardio workout and to lose weight?

    I don't have access to an eliptical all I have is a treadmill at my gym. Is 3 days enough? I have never ran before.

    If you haven't been habitually doing cardio, 3x a week is enough for now. If your progress slows, then you should add some more sessions.

    personally im not a big fan of running cuz you can burn muscle for energy which is bad....make sure that your heart rate is at 65-75% of max (220-age X .7) this is a good fat burning zone.

    Running sucks. Burns muscle as well as fat. Try high-speed walking or eliptical.
