Default Cardio Specifics

Hey, I've started my 5 week long cut session and I've pretty much got my diet plan down but now I was just thinking about what Dr. X had said in another post. Something to the effect of not being in the fat burning zone until 20 mins of cardio has been done. I've only been doing 30 mins of cardio everyday. Do you think that maybe I should increase that to 40 mins or so to gain more fat burn? Or am I missing something?

it depends, what kinda cardio are you doing? HIIT, jog, run, etc.
Also, could you post the link that Dr. X wrote up that you are referring to?

Well I'm doing 30 mins on a treadmill since its winter up here in the North and runnin outside is downright dangerous. Ha! I started out at 20 mins and have been bumping it up 2 mins everytime until I hit 30 ( which I have). I'm doing 5mph continuously the whole time and was considering starting to bump up the speed now slowly each run or should I keep increasing the time some more?

Dr. X actually said lower intensity cardio 45-60 mins in his "How to Bulk" stickies.

He also said 20-30 mins in the "How to Cut" sticky.

These would seem opposite to me but I don't have nearly the experience. Just trying to gain some valuable knowledge to do things right.

At least 30 min is good to start out at, just keep bumping it up a few min each time. Low intensity is the best for fat burning as it burns fat stores whereas high intensity burns carb stores. Walk at an incline on a treadmill. I usually play w/ the incline and speed throughout the 45min i do cardio.

Read up on HIIT cardio. That is what should be done more often than just running at a steady pace if you are cutting, and at 20-35 mins.

Studies have shown that High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) has a greater effect on fat loss then does low intesity long duration cardio. If your goal is fat loss read up on HIIT, thats really the way to go.

I had a big debate in the how to cut sticky on that. I think Dave weighed in there too. It's the post exercise effect that is the most important part, I think.

Yippie. I get to agree with hrdgain!

Haha.

yeah thats a huge deal, the effects HIIT has on metabolism after your done are substantially higher then long solid state cardio sessions.
