Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
Running doesn't burn that much fat. Walking is more effective. You are best of doing a 20 minute walk run. Walk for 3 minutes, then do alternate minute of walking and 30 seconds of running followed by a 3 minute cool down at the end. This is called High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). If you've never heard of it, Google it. You'll burn a shitload more fat than regular running or walking, and there is a lot of evidence to back this up, it's not an opinion.
Also when training, have short rest periods of 60 seconds between each set. This'll keep your metabolism working harder.
Wearing a jumper offers no benefit. You should be keeping up your water intake as it helps digest your food and flushes away toxins in the body.
Nice set up Brute. Make sure you put it to good use.
Maybe add a couple of more attachment for the pulley's over time to hit your muscles from every angle.
