Is heart rate a good measure of fat burning? by wizzywiz
Hello, there seems to be little consensus on which exercises burn how much fat. So, can I just measure the intensity of my calorie burning by monitoring my heart rate? Thanks....

Reducing Bodyfat by RM
What is the right way of reducing body fat percentage for men? Some say more of strength training and little of cardio and others say more of cardio and little of strength training. I want to get in to some exercise program to reduce my BF% from 25% to less than 20%. I am confused on the...

Fitness level and calories burned by Sasha
I wear a heart rate monitor when I exercise, and I check how many calories I have burned. About 6 months ago, I recorded the amount of calories I burn when doing a 1-hour advanced Tae-bo tape - it was 270 calories (I weight 104 lbs.). However, when I did the same tape yesterday, the number of...

Slow Jogging - Weakened Heart - Why? by Nelson Win
At 48 I returned to slow jogging after a break of many years. I wanted to improve my low energy levels. I took it easily and slowly, following all medical advice as regards frequency and intensity (complied with Ken Cooper's recommendations to the t). Yet my heart was weakened by it. After 8...

heart rate vs blood sugar by [email protected]
Hi, I've noticed that after about 30 minutes of heavy-hand exercise at around a 13 MET level, my heart rate seems "magically" to go up as much as 10 beats per minutes. That is, if I'm at 130 during the first 30 minutes, staying at the same level of exercise yields around 140, plus or minus, for...

My $0.02 on Lance Armstrong by Midtown Bob
His 7 wins of the tour speak for themselves blah blah blah... Me thinks , when LA had his cancer treatments, he could have been treated with biologics ( biologically custom made drugs, google it ). There could have been something in his treatments that could have been a positive side-effect, for...

What's the point of joining a gym? by Chris
I'm doing some research and am wondering what it is that people are really looking for when they sign up to a gym? When you have that first assessment, what is it that you really want to know from them? And, as time goes by, what is it that keeps you going? Looking forward to hearing from you.

How Scripted is Bodybuilding? by AL
Considering that it is openly admitted that wrestling is scripted and the winners are mapped out ahead of time for the entire wrestling season, what are the odds that bodybuilding is just as fake and scripted?? I personally saw the Pumping Iron movie as being just about Arnold. Even though the...

Rapid Weight Loss by [email protected]
Ok, this may sound vane and not worth your while, but here goes. I am in a 'biggest loser' contest at work. Whoever loses the highest % of body weight in 3 months. After two months, I've lost 18 lbs, but to win, I still need to lose a lot more, my guess is at least that much again. My stats: 40...

Goal Achieved by Blair P. Houghton
GOAL ACHIEVED I stood on my scale this morning and, slightly surprised because I "felt a little fat" today, I racked up a 184.5-pound reading. My original, subjective goal - set this summer - of having a six-pack by Christmas, was unrealistic and based on a faulty understanding of the real depth...

Fruit!!! by Lynsey A
Well, specifically pears..... I am one! And I know I can not change this body shape, and that 'spot reducing' is a myth! Currently I do weights, around 3 times per week, a varying routine depending on if im at the gym or free weights at home. But always compound exercises, 8-10 reps and covering...
