I read this article on Medtronic's Loop blog and found it contained good information about exercising with an insulin pump.
I've found that when I go for my brisk 50 minute walks, I have to reduce my basal insulin level (via my pump's temporary basal feature) to 0% for the duration of the walk, otherwise, I'll go hypo at the tail-end of the walk. When working out on weight resistance machines combined with 30 minutes on eliptical or treadmill, I only needed to reduce my basal by 50%…probably because the weight training causes a rise in my BG. One thing the article noted is that "No one size" approach fits us all.
