7:15 am
need to be running the 10,000 steps. >> we accommodate to the level of activity we do throughout the day. if all i do at 10e thousand step, at some point i don't get the cardiovascular conditioning level. you want a level of intensity for the heart to condition, get healthier, and stronger. >> do you like these things? >> they're okay. they're good. but the athletes that understand that go fors these because they understand all of the information that comes out. for the average person, they may not understand that i actually need to do a level of heart rate that's at a higher level. >> because you see 10,000 steps and maybe think, i can eat a little extra today. but it's not that simple. is it good for losing weight? it's obviously a combination of things. >> it is. it's giving an indicator of what we do throughout the day. from that point, you take it to a conditioning level. for example, you want to get to
7:16 am
percent of your maximum heart rate. those things can be calculated. >> john: you worried about them not as accurate? we have seen stories where the heart rate isn't what you think it is. this is amies. i tested mine the other day. it had me at 92. my resting heart rate is 50. if it's that inaccurate, is it that good? >> it's moment by moment. if you take mine. this used to be big boxes and now they're down to this. in the clinic we have this. right now it says mine is 8ed. maybe just because we're on television. could be because i ran from the parking lot. >> john: could be that too bottom line is you need to see your doctor and make sure you are on the track. good thing on the side but it's not the total. >> you want to get a fm before flaying. talk to them about the training heart rate. you want to get a physical before anything.

[crunching through the snow]. this was my walk this morning.
7:28 am
where i am having to walk in the middle of the street where it's relatively clear. digging out and driving my car, you see was not much of an option. what gets you as you walk through the streets, is how quiet it is. it's not going to change much throughout the day as far as work travel is concerned. the dig-out will take days and the federal government is shuft down and nearly all area schools. >> we will continue to see dangerous slick roadways. continue to stay off of the road. >> with huge snow plows clearing runway, air travel is expected to resume but on a limited basic. this storm left a mess as you head north too. into the philly and new york. along the jersey shore, coastal flooding.

7:36 am
republican caucusgoers there. ted cruz has fallen out of the top spot, down 4 points to 23%. and marco rubio has dropped a bit, down to 12%. he was at 15% two weeks ago. no other candidate has double digit support. this comes following controversial comments that donald trump made over the weekend. he was speaking for a group in -- to a group in iowa. and claimed his supporters are so devoted that they would vote for him no matter what he does at this point. >> my people are so smart. you know what else they say, the polls. they say i have the most loyal people. and that i could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody and still not lose voters. trump at 31% compared to ted
7:37 am
>> amy: on the democratic side of things, hillary clinton and bernie sanders are effectively in a dead heat. sanders only holding a 1 point lead over hillary clinton. according to a new poll conducted, and in new hampshire it's not even close. sanders has a 19 point lead over the former secretary of state. that's almost as big as the 22 point lead that clinton now maintains. a potential independent run by former mayor michael bloomberg. luanne has a guest here to talk about the presidential race. >> reporter: joining us is political analyst carl jackson. good good to see you. we're one week away. what do the candidates need to do this week. >> obviously, donald trump doesn't have to do a thing but
7:38 am
he says that he can shoot someone and get away with, that's just hyperbole. and ted cruz went on the attack. think he went on attack a little bit early. he has to go back to giving people solutions and constitutional hope if you will. and let's face it, donald trump had an excellent week last week. he got the establishment and the governor of iowa behind him. he didn't fully endorse him but he bashed cruz. he got sara pill-in behind him. trump. >> what does marco rubio and jeb bush need to do to get the vote? for bush. pp but if others get out of the race, i think rubio would soar. >> on the democratic side of
7:39 am
basically in a virtual dead heat. does that surprised you at all? >> no. people are so exited about bernie sanders because he's quote unquote real. hillary clinton is a horrible candidate-she has the name. i don't think they think say she's a great x candidate. she's got some experience. i don't think she's done a good job. i am bias because i am a conservative. she's just not a great candidate. bernie sanders inspires people. he speaks a lot of fluff. i think you will see numbers decrease when he hits the souther but who knows at this point. it's been a crazy year. >> and talk about the mayor, former mayor bloomberg. he is threatening to run. who would it hurt more, the democrats or the republicans? >> listen, he's a liberal. it would destroy democrats if he runs. he's banking that hillary
7:40 am
down. then probably a trump and sanders race. he thinks they're so far on the fringes that he can come in and coalesce all of the independents and those that are more pragmatics. and he might be right, if it ends up being a trump and sanders race. but in order to win the presidency, it's highly doubtful. he's looking at tedly voaz roosevelt that government 20%, and ross pero with 12%. it may be possible. race? >> it all depends on what happens with hillary. if she's indicted, he will get in. if she's not, he will not. it's just a wait and see. go for karl jackson radio and
