wesv saidBasically aerobic exercises. Find out your aerobic heart beat range online. It should be 70-80% of your max HR. Exercises such as hiking or walking for more than 25 minutes burn fat (of course you can go hiking at the gym). Don't do anaerobic exercises. This is a huge mistake everyone does. Anaerobic exercises are things like sprinting. In that case it burns sugar (ATP), not fat, then causes hunger immediately. If you're going to use a treadmill just make sure your heart rate is within range.
Such bad advice. Horrible.
Read up on HIIT, and fat loss methods for metabolic activation.
Resistance training is essential to any weight loss / body composition program.
Higher intensity provides better long term metabolic activation without invoking the famine response.
Fast weight training along with start stop activities could well mean you need to do no steady state cardio, at all. This science is all well documented by countless university research programs. Think fast weight training, red line sports / cardio (think basketball, soccer, hockey played right, sprints) are exceptional for body re-composition and cardiac training / cardiac improvement.
You can improve your EKG in as little as 7 4 minute sessions weekly. It's THAT good. The advice above (in the quote) could not be more incorrect.
Note that sudden death syndrome is highest in folks that do long time steady state cardio. Cardiologists believe it's from long term low grade trauma to the heart.
If you're above 25, you should have your testosterone checked. Normal to high levels of test reduce your risk of a serious cv event by 57%. AHA 2014, American Society of Urlogists, JAMA, American College of Cardiology 2014-2015. Their European counterpart found 56% in 2015.
