The Cardio exercise that burns the most amount of fat is the one that you will be willing to do several times a week for several weeks in a row

Default Hiit

So i remeber you guys told me about hiit a long time ago. Anyways i remeber reading that you see best results if u do it in the morning. anyways does it matter that much cuz as of right now i got no where to run in the morning with 2ft of snow outside. and its been liek 10 degrees up here in NY lol. My guess is ill have to do it at the gym ona machine. would i be best off just setting up the treadmill or something for it?

There are all kinds of things posted with ideas of what to do. It's really up to you. Look at the HIIT sticky.

The idea behind doing it in the morning is probably the fasted cardio thing (which I wouldn't recommend) and the idea that it would rev up your metabolism for the rest of the day. But whenever you can do it is better than nothing and I wouldn't get hung up on times.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

I usually do my cardio in the morning on the treamill in my basement, but if you don't have your own treadmill and depending on your schedule that could be kind of hard (gettin to the gym early in the morning/running outside) perhaps cardio after your last meal before bed would be good?

The best calorie burning cardio exercise, as far as I'm concerned, is the rowing machine (erg). Given that it is a weight bearing exercise (another reason swimming sucks for fat loss) and that it uses pretty much every muscle group you have, you burn calories even better than running. It is also a good strength/muscle building exercise, for as far as exercises go. The one thing that needs to be taken into consideration, however, is technique. Look it up online, or find a trainer that can show you how to do it. Inefficient erging is just that- inefficient. It is also a good way to injure yourself.

A cross trainer machine is my choise. I dont believe in low intensity training (fat loss heart rate 110 to 120 beats per minute). To me dieting is all about burning calories and that is most effective with a higher heart rate. Swimming, threadmill, etc just does not do it for me. A cross trainer machine puts your arms as well as lets to work and pumps up your heart rate.

In my opinion a clever choise is to do cardio 15 minutes prior and 15 minutes after the workout. It is important to get your heart rate up before lifting weights. This will keep your heart rate higher during the work out and you will burn more calories.

At the moment I am 200lbs and I work out 6 times per week. Before lifting weights I do 15 minutes cardio with 140 to 150 bpm. During my work out my heart goes between 120 and 160. After the workout I do 15 minutes of cardio just like before the work out.

This routine allows me easily to burn +800 kcal per workout.

ok, im torn now. i have always done cardio in the 160-170 bpm but i have done quite a bit of reading that for fat loss its best to be @60%-70% bpm.

my diet is straightened out... eating approx. 1500 cals at 60/20/20

doing cardio @4 -5 times a week..

i want to preserve all muscle while shedding the fat.

am i wasting time with the less intense cardio vs the more intense?

i would think the more intense takes muscle and fat.

How much do you weight? 1500 kcals per day sounds very low. In about 200 lbs it is a muscle killer to eat less than 2000 kcals.

I prefer to do short periods of cardio with high bpm than looong tiring sessions with low bpm. Remember, in the end all that counts is the calories taken versus calories burned. Short periods of cardio with high bpm will not take away your muscles. Also, it will boost your metabolism better than low bpm workout. After a high bpm workout your body will "run" faster longer than after a low bpm workout. The exact time of doing the workout is not the ONLY time you burn calories.
