Excess Exercise Ernie can do 20 pullups, or 30 situps, or 40 pushups, in one minute.  Doing one pull-up burns 1.5 calories; one sit-up burns 1.8 cal; a push-up burns 1.2 cal.  Ernie is too 'pressed' for time; you need to design him two Efficient Exercise Efforts:
 
(i) Panic Workout: Lasts seven minutes, burns exactly 300 calories, with a total of 200 reps,
(ii) Full Session: At least 30 min, burning at least 1200 calories, with as few reps as possible.
 
Each workout must contain at least one rep(etition) of each exercise. State how many reps of each type, and total reps, for each workout.
