The best new fat burner!

My wife used Michael Elias as a trainer a couple of years ago, she did the same cardio and it was phenomenal. She lost weight quickly but safely. Her mom told her she was too skinny because her clothes were sooo loose and she still had another 10-15 pounds to go. Unfortunately she has been lazy and needs to do the same again. Walking/jogging with the doggy has not been as effective.

hahahah omfg thats nuts bro,
at 15 incline there is no, and i mean NO way i was able to not hold onto the bars. NUTTTTTY.
Aight then I'll give 2.9 - 3.9 a shot but I might not be able to do it without the bars on the 15% incline man.

Right now i'm doing 45 minutes empty stomach cardio 4 times a week with my heartrate at 130bpm, i was doing some interval work but i'm following the advice of an IFBB pro right now and he told me to drop it, i think your method would be good for post-workout though. For empty stomach cardio i would keep it low intensity steady pace. Oh and i take 2and 3 before hand lol

I tried it after my session tonight. Thanks for the tip.
I found it quite easy. Did i read everything right?
15 incline/1 min of 4.1/2 min of 3.1
Was ok as far as cardio goes. It's not something i'd dread doing so that's a big bonus.
Just wondering how difficult i'm supposed to find it because quite a few on here were saying it's very difficult and i don't have super stamina or anything but i found it easy...... so was just wondering if i've mis-understood something?
Not been a big headed smart-ass or anything. Just want to make sure i'm doing it right. I want the results

just curious, how would you guys say this compares with HIIT cardio 3x week after lifting for 9-12minutes of interval work. not looking for a huge cut, just keeping the fat off during bulking?

I have had great success doing a variety of different types of cardio. My rule of thumb is fasted cardio should be low intensity, otherwise I use interval training which really kicks in with the fat burn. What I have really had success with just lately is muscle preservation/gain while burning fat. Yes the supps I have been using have played there part. I just can't believe that at close to 50 I am still able to add mass so easily. I really caught my off guard, I expected to lose weight but I didn't I just burned fat.

Question regarding the machines at the gym
my elliptical and the treadmill have different settings (ie manual, cardio, heart, fat loss, mountain, flat, etc) that will change the resistance and such in intervals... but these are almost impossible to customize (you can customize the resistance of each interval..but not the length of the interval)
do you guys just manually adjust the speed every minute.. or is there a way to customize the intervals that i am overlooking?
Im tired of being stuck to the machines preset intervals, and i hate having to adjust the machine every minute

Just giving due props to JJohn - I've been doing a slight variation on this exercise for the last week and it is added a new dimention to my normal after weights cardio; it's also a lot of fun! Cheers for the thread/tip JJohn.

Ok Sounds Interesting
ok i AM SOLD. i TYPICALLY INTERSPERSE CARDIO DURING MYE WEIGHTS, LIKE BETWEEN SUPERSETS. is this horribly wrong? It gives my muscles a chance to rest without just sitting around (usually just like 5 minutes of HIIT before doing the next series of supersets, and not after supersets focused on legs) i have to say I am going ot try it YOUR way, cause my way has not been realy producing fat burning results.
(Sorry about he caps)

so will this be at Nutraplanet anytime soon?
my treadmill only goes to 10!
Sounds like you are recomping nicely, JJ!
Bobby: I don't believe the pop 2 pills and i lost weight claim either! But this thing that JJ's got...........he may be on to something.
JJ, you only lifting 4 days per week followed by cardio? nothing on the the other 3 days?
05-16-2008, 11:08 AM
Darn, get a new one then
Thanks! Right now, I lift 5x a week, and cardio after my weights sessions, except leg day.
The other days, I rest, I might go for rollerblade and biking, but it's nothing really intense, just for fun..

I love me some HIIT, and better yet, dynamic exercise. If your goal is to burn fat, cardio-exclusive sessions, utilizing varying speeds and movements, will shed the most adipose over time. Whether it be inclined, declined, backwards, or what have you, the important aspect is intensity and variance. Studies comparing low vs high intensity cardiovascular training show the high intensity group losing more adipose over a longer time period (due to the aggregate effect on metabolic pathways [see: oxidation of FFAs, nitrogen balance, glucose disposal and son on]). Low-intensity cardio is amazing if your only concern is losing fat from 24-72h post-exercise (as FFAs are oxidized readily in that respect); however, if your goal is long-term weight management, there is no replacement for dynamic movement and high-intensity training.
