    65-75% of Max HR for Everyone?

    Hi, i've been doing cardio at 65-75% of my max HR and after the session, i would look real flat and think i've used muscle glycogen to fuel myself when doing cardio on an empty stomach in the morning. I haven't done cardio for about a week and for 3 days i've been doing cardio at a HR that i feel i am using fat as energy. This is what i have noticed, whenever my HR is over 110 bpm, i feel a fart about to come out so i'm thinking i'm using the food that still hasnt been digested completely for energy so if i go a few bpm under 110 that would be perfect for using fat as energy. Also i feel as if i am completely alert and hyped up after a cardio session i feel as if i used up muscle glycogen as energy, now since i am working my heart less intense as before the feeling i get after i'm done with cardio is a BIT more energetic than i am the second i wake up. Oh yeah and i'm 18 so the 65-75% range is between 132-155 thanks.

    What's the formula that you use to get the 65-75%? If it's the fintness calculator at the main page here, I'm confused. Do I put a 100% or 65-75%. And if you played around with % on that calculator, how would you find that 110bpm?

    So in my case (220-27).65=138 to (220-27).75=144.
    Where is he getting this 110?
    This is getting complex. Maybe instead of getting a HR monitor, I'll just keep jogging 5 miles a day 5 days a week.

    I FEEL that 110 is my appropriate heartrate for optimum fat loss, but subtracting my age from 220 and multiplying it by 65% i get 132 bpm.

    Jogging is not a good form of cardio. Not for pure lipolysis, glycogen sparing, and it's bad on the knees/lower back.

    If jogging is bad, what would you suggest for fat burning? Walking, biking, ellipticals?

    A brisk walk or cycling at a moderate pace will do just fine at burning fat, just make sure you are doing it for 40-60 minutes on an empty stomach.

    As long as you keep your HR up...it doesn't matter. Whichever you prefer. Like I said, I prefer the elliptical or bike for 45-60 mins.
