    Arrow Cardio, high or low intensity for fat loss?

    Just want to see which everyone prefers and why for fat loss. I hear way too many opinions from trainers and I want opinions from people who actually have experience. REDROCK

    well, i used to be a proponent of high intensity training until i bought a heart rate monitor and effectively tweaked the intensity to my heart rate.

    i was burning fat before, but you have to understand that you are building aerobic capacity more if you train more intense for shorter amounts of time.

    now i do less calories for the same amount of time and my fat loss is more steady and consistent.

    buy a heart rate monitor and go 70-80% of your target to watch the fat melt off...singly the best cardio investment i have made.

    I agree with daem. I bought a cheap $60 heart moniter and I can now keep my heart rate at about 75% for an hour without getting out of breath. I try to slow jog at 140bpm.
