    Anything that gets your heart rate up. Outdoors- running, biking. Machines- Arc trainers, AMT's, and Stepmills are my favorites. Always get off of them soaked.

    Any exercise that keeps your heart-rate in the "zone" for a good 25 minutes at least.

    Walking stairs while carrying a weight. Notice I said "walking", not running. If you carry even a 25 pound weight, walking up and down will have your heart beating out of your chest! I find a plate is better than dumbbells, as it puts less stress on your joints. I carry it behind my head most of the time, but flip it down and carry it on my chest for a break too. This is essentially what TahoeBackPacker likes doing on his hikes, but this is something I can do even when weather does not permit. I also find making myself hold the weight, rather than using the vest, keeps my joints strong too.

    I've had a lot of success with spinning/cycle classes, say 2 - 3 times a week. They are also good for building your core if you hold the proper position when you are out of the saddle and don't hold up your body weight using your hands on the handles. My core has gotten a lot strong through cycling (indoor and outdoor).

    Gotta agree. An intense plyometrics routine will kick your ass!

    two ways to run on a treadmill. 3% incline for an hour. 250 calories burned. Congratulations, you're a gym tourist. Not an effective use of time if your goal is to lose weight. Crank the incline up to max. you slow down. But, you can make that red LED guestimate meter read 800-1000 calories after an hour. That incline activates your quads, glutes, and calves increases your cardio effort. Start leg strength development as soon as possible as this helps you maintain that level of effort longer.

    Another machine to check out is the Precor AMT100i Adaptive Motion trainer.



    I can kick my own ass in less time on a machine like that. But, with a retail cost of $8,000, you may have to search for a gym that has a few of them.


    I strongly recommend that you keep an eye on your heartrate using the built-in heartrate receivers Precor and StarTrac build into their control panel. The most popular brand they support is Polar.

    You can find Polar straps by themselves for about $45 at Best Buy or online.

    I've been dieting and exercising steadily for some time now but I always plateaued at the same point, I always had a bit of belly fat left.

    Since I started doing interval training about 3-4 weeks ago I've finally been able to see noticeable improvements with the belly fat and even on the love handles. I'm definitely going to keep it up!
