Spending an hour on the treadmill is not the best way to burn fat off. You will just end up slowing your metabolism downa nd burn muscle istead of fat.
The treadmill may not overheat but you aren't raising your metabolism to make your body a more effective fat burning machine that way.

Do you mean to say that if I set the treadmill at a speed of 12 miles an hour pace I am not raising my metabolism rate? I opined that running is better than lifting weights as a general rule in conditioning one's body. In everthing type of exercise we do, there will always be trade off's.

its not the lenght of time you spend but rather how much your heart can handle. Your fitness consultant should be able to tell you what heart rate zone s appropriate for your age and built. This is where you get the maximum fat burning benefit.

Swimming laps on an olympic size pool is also a very good cardiomascular workout. Ang hirap lang dahil wala masyadong pool na ganito sa pinas.

If you're able to run at 12 mph for an hour, that means you are aerobically fit. I mean its no small feat to be able to run 12 miles, that's almost 20 kms which is the distance some Milo competition runs here is. Problem is physical fitness does not mean aerobic fitness only, it includes strength and muscular fitness, and flexibility. That's why physical fitness exams have all these components. Weight loss programs invariably contain weight training so that you will increase muscle mass thereby increasing basal metabolic rate. With increased basal metabolic rate, you increase calorie expenditure even when you are not doing anything. Ultimately it would depend on your goals. If you would like to compete in long distance running, judging from the appearance of Kenyan runners and marathoners, I doubt they do weight training. But then its not necessary for them to lose weight. For over all fitness though, it is recommended that you also add strengthening and flexibility exercises.

Mix your cardio workout.

Gotta confuse the body every now and then so that it doesnt "smarten up".

Alternate:

Running
Swimming
Biking
Rowing
Stepper
Brisk Walking
Different group aerobic workouts

Also, so you wouldnt get bored.

Anaerobic training is much better for fatloss, retaining lean muscle and elevating your metabolism than aerobic training.

The heart rate is honestly another misconception for fatloss. Motocross racers and nascar drivers are art ab out 95% of their heart rate when they race and yet they aren't really the most fit people, yet they do have a decent fitness level.

remember, the secret is to burn more calories than that you consume.

Even in a lot of recent medical findings, lifting weights has been proven to be far better in fat burning than any other exercise.

You'll have to take into consideration efficiency of the workout and the nature of people. In calories per hour based on calculations of caloriesperhour.com, a 150 lb person loses the following calories per hour: lifting weights moderately, 204 calories; walking at 3.5 miles per hour, 259 calories; jogging, 476 calories. In any gym I've been to, there were always more people working out aerobically longer than lifting weights, specially the females. One thing important about a workout is that it would be a lot better if you're having fun doing it. It would probably be safe to say that playing badminton, tennis, basketball, volleyball and other ball games is a lot more fun than lifting weights for a lot of people. Except for bodybuilders, I doubt if there are other people who train exclusively by lifting weights. I would have to say it would be difficult to sustain an all weight training regimen for most people.

Don't forget to mention the EPOC or the afterburn rather than just what you burn during the workout.

I never said that you should lift weights exclusively, but if done properly, this can prepare you for any other physical activities.

T be perfectly honest, I have never met anyone who lost a significant amount of weight and kept it off by just doing pure cardio.

In Fitness First and Slimmers there are, they're middle aged women and more mature who religiously do aerobics and don't venture to the weight area.

True that and sadly, these women never keep the weight off.

We had a group of middle aged women like that and only one of them lifted weights religiously, and the one who lifted lost the most amount of weight

@Olympus
I'm planning to do stair climbing in a high rise condo for cardio. Please help me with some pointers or links to a program for me to follow. Thanks.

Interesting thread. A lot of useful info. Checked out the http://www.bodyforli...diotraining.asp site that one
of the first few posters added.

A friend of mine has already told me about it and has been egging me on to shape up.
In any case, how can you customize HIIT? How do you mix it with weights and how do you determine
if Im not over-exerting myself on the first try (which can lead to injury or sickness, further delaying the constant workouts)

Anyways, hope someone can elaborate. :goatee:

YOu start with an intensity you can handle. I would suggest doing it twice a week at most after lifting weights.

Well, I'm not in the best shape of my life, and a heck of a long time since I've lifted weights.
Can't I start with HIIT first before I use weights since I'm not sure if I can do so in my poor physical condition.

Start with weight as well. That is why it is best you have someone knowledgeable to start you off.
