Default Does weight lifting or cardio exercises speed weight loss?

I was trying to repeat what the article had said. By "through the roof" I
meant maxed out. He hit maximum heart rate during his set. After 5
of rest his heart rate had not returned to normal (what it was before he
began his sets) leaving his average heart rate at 80% for the duration of
his workout.

They also said in that same article that Fred Hatfield had a heart as
as a marathon runner. Yet he said he never did any cardio exercise at
That was all from the powerlifting.

I believe Fred's best squat was 1014 pounds.

He's an impressive guy, yes, but like I said, five minutes should be
plenty time to get his heart back down to "normal," especially if he's
got such a strong heart. Remember, the heart's only pumping hard
'cause it's trying to keep up with demand. If it's still pumping
pretty hard (such that it's not settled back to normal) even after the
demand's stopped, after five minutes, well, that sounds scary.

Maybe someone from the newsgroup SMC can advise?

It would help if I could find the article. But I just did a search on Fred's
site as well as on the internet at large. And it is not available. This
article was written some 15 years ago or more. Fred was in excellent health
at the time I can assure you.
