    15-20 minutes is not nearly enough for fat burning. Lipolysis starts around 20 minutes, so you need to do at least 20 minutes, preferrably 1 hour. A brisk walk is all you need to burn fat, anything more will use muscle glycogen in the muscles being used in cardio.

    The army says to get a maximum cardio workout, you have to exercise for at least 20 min. Then I think why the hell we always have to do 3 hour ruck marches?

    Spoon, as long as your hr is in the range of 65%-75% MHR, your good to go. A brisk walk is just a fast walk, so its easy and you can do it for hours at ease if you wanted.

    I betting that the military are using cardio as increasing endurance, rather than burn fat. Otherwise you would be doing 3 hour ruck walks

    Yes, very much so increasing endurance. To be able to do more and longer ruck marches. And obsticle courses in the rain.
