    Way too broad of a question. Current BF%? Goal????


    To be buring that many calories you must be doing a lot of cardio. Are you running at your THR for about 45 minutes??? Or are you spriting b/c that's a lot of calories. That's important b/c I want to make sure ou're not tapping into muscle for energy.

    Right now im about 225 20% bf I would like to get down to around 200-210 12-15%bf range. I do 30min on the eliptical at a pretty high level. I go pretty intense but usually stay around 170 bpm which is right around my target hr. I have been doing this for about 4months and have lost about 45pds while still getting stronger. I think im about to platue though so I no im prob gona have to tweak on my diet and wanted to see what your guys opinions were on my cardio. Thanks for any help

    It depends on how many calories your eating also, lol if your eating 4500 calories then no its prob not enuff, but if ur diet is on target, then that should be enuff
