Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
Actually your wrong here. High intense cardio is bad because you already used your glucose during your weight work out. You are burning through your muscle by doing high intense cardio. Why do you think cardio equipment always has fat burning zone listed at low heart rates?
You don't really start burning anything until 30 minutes in of cardio. Your high intensity should be your weight work out. If you have enough energy to do high itensity cardio, then you didn't hit the weights hard enough.
You're not necessarily burning your muscle. You're burning fat along with other sources during high intensity cardio. Did you read that article at all?
Both elements of cardio has its benefits in their own ways. I much prefer high intensity because it burns more calories (fat, carbs, etc,.) rather than burning just straight up fat or carbs in a much longer time period.
It sounds good but it's impractical.
The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time.
