    I've read a lot of posts of others doing this after workouts... ie walking at HIGH incline??? I dont know how long my calves would hold out on this... but... where does it get your heart rate?

    I was thinking more light jogging / cycling to get into the 60% MHR range

    I don't work my calves directly so this helps them for me but honestly I never feel them fatigue quickly or anything. In 30 min I burn around 400+ kcals at 3.0-3.2 and my heart rate is usually in the 60-70% range. It doesn't seem hard but you are sweating like crazy after.


  13. I will take my post w/o drink after i'm done lifting and the go on the treadmill for 7-10 minutes at close to this 3.0-3.3 at 15% incline and i get a good sweat in that short period of time, although lately i have not been doing this b/c my workouts are taking longer with my partner and I'm sad to say that I'm putting on weight in the wrong places!

  14. i just do straight HITT after my weights that way only takes about 15min I keep my HR at approx 80-85% max and I'm still pumped when i'm done.

  15. I feel like doing cardio after weights does more, because all of your muscle fibers are activated. Also, it takes something like 15-18 minutes of cardio to even get to the point where you are burning fat. I feel like weights gets that out of the way and I can get to the fat burning!

    Whoever said that the pump has to subside sooner or later is right. I have never been one to hold my pump for very long anyway.

    I like to start my workout with 5 min of walking on incline. Gets me warmed up. I do know a guy who gets up in the morning and does 20 min of fasted walking on incline. He says it make a world of difference when cutting.

    I feel like doing any other time besides cutting might be a quick way to waste away muscle mass.

    Not I. Google it I guess. The majority here seems to think it is beneficial as far as burning fat goes. You can check it out for yourself though... If you do happen to find a good one, post it up!

  19. One thing that nobody ever mentions is the fat burning your doing when OFF the treadmill. You burn more fat throughout the day in a rested like state. With that said, I'm of the mindset that the absolute best thing to do is HIIT for 10-12 minutes after weights. Run your hardest/fastest and suck it up. You'll get your heart rate up and throughout the day burn more fat.
    I just don't see how a 3.0-3.5mph walk, even incline is going to have that great an effect as compared to HIIT. Keep in mind all, you burn more fat off the treadmill then on. Now go run and get that heart rate up!

    Walking on incline is HARD! I know a guy, and that is all the cardio he does. He competes, and diets down to about 3-4% for shows. I have done it in the past and can attest that it is more difficult than you think.

    You WILL burn muscle doing HIIT if you are dieting and are severly calorie restricted. If you're on no carbs... forget about it. HIIT is asking for trouble in my opinion, UNLESS you are solely looking for fat burning effects and do not mind some muscle mass loss.

    Proof? as i have read you are always using fat/carb/protien for energy

    See the last page of http://www.stpatricks.qld.edu.au/sit...20ACTIVITY.doc

  24. links not working for me

  25. **** bro...jump rope for 5 X 3 min rounds... you wanna get some HITT training...you jump rope with weighted handles for 5 X 3 min round and you can get your heart rate up fast. To really turn it up go full on the last 30 sec of each round. I gaurentee by round 5 you'll be sweating balls.

  26. I know I'm going to get flamed for this post, but I have to say it's a bit strange hearing 7 min treadmill sessions refered to as cardio.

    Do you do longer cardio on off days?

    It's a file, you have to wait for the pop-up, then choose to save or open.

  29. Eh, I have started it. Been on Havoc though and I think that has helped me prevent a lot of fat gain. 15 - 25 min usually......I use the arc machine. I love that thing.

    Yeah I either use that or the elyptical (however you spell it). Depends on how close to leg day it is! :/
