    i'm glad you mentioned roller skating. it is better on the joints than running, and is low impact as well in comparison to running.

    I've been going between 5 and 10 miles a day for about a month, now. I got a treadmill yesterday, finally, and get to exercise in the comfort of my own home. Definitely has me pumped to do cardio more often, and for longer! Goes up to 30%, as well.

    You forgot to mention the advantage of cycling when it comes to smart trainers with zwift. You can accurately convert your wattage output to calories. So when it comes to know how many calories you actually burned, cycling with a smart trainer is the best.

    But... what if you do light jogging every day, like 30~ mins, but still eat in a surplus and gain weight because I'm lean bulking. It doesn't make me sore or affect my workouts as I do them at different times and it's not that hard. Is that still going to affect muscle growth?

    I'm running every 3rd day , very easy pace and always under one hour . I'm not sore at all after that . Other days I'm cycling as I just can't stop , trying to do steady pace but sometimes I just have to hit the intervals . Haven't noticed that I'd loose some muscles because of that . I'd say it actually makes whole my body to recover better because this form of run makes me recover better and improve the oxygen use . If you look back in history even Lee Haney was running once a week and I don't think it was doing him any harm

    Downhill skiing sucks for burning calories. An entire day skiing, and I'll burn 150 per my garmin and max heart rate will be 110. But maybe there is an effiency factor for being good, once you get decent if feels like way less work to turn.

    This is my experience with 1 year seeing Coach Greg’s videos. I’m 2.01cm tall, I started lifting weights when I was 16 (I’m 19 right now) and I had no idea about Gym performance, diets and nutrition. I was 116 Kg and I lost a lot of weight in 6 months (maybe my lowest weight was 78). Yoyo dieting for many time and binge eating disorder as well. Step by step I got into appropriate nutrition and I started to follow really good popular and intelligent Gym influencers but you were the best one by far. I’m majoring in medicine and sometimes it’s quite frustrating to see how bad people train and eat. To be honest main gaining has worked so good for me (No more binge eating no more anxiety, no more eating disorders and I’m pretty sure that I won’t do that anymore). I’m 86 Kg and 12% body fat with nice muscles and definition (I’m a basketball athlete) so I just wanted to thank you a lot for all the knowledge you give us. I’ll try to expand your message as many places as I can in my University and with the people I love. I’ll main gain for the rest of my life and I’m pretty sure that at my 25’s or 30’s I’ll be healthier, stronger and I’ll look as ripped and as good as my body’s genetics can be. Hope that you got my message, I’m Mexican and obviously English isn’t my native language. Best regards from México = )

    For anyone experiencing lower back pain when rowing, there is a very good chance the position of your butt is the cause. When you are seated with your legs out straight and feet strapped in you should have a bit of an anterior pelvic tilt and a neutral lumbar spine. Perhaps think of deadlift cues. Presumably you should have minimal lumbar flexion until your spinal erectors fatigue. At which point it is probably a good idea to ease up or really focus in on perfect form. Please treat rowing like any other weight based activity, form matters, and most people have poor form.

    running at low heart rate is fine...

  100. pat kob

    pat kobPrije 8 dana

    It's not a's type of substrat you use percentage wise. High heart rate for long times indicates high glycogen usage ...hence injury probability goes up (long anaerobic and hard is usually bad news because the body doesn't have the capacity to adapt to black zone training). The 180 bpm (maf zone) minus age is theoritical but is pretty good to know what is max aerobic zone...minus or add 10 bpmb depending on health or fitness levels. This will increase specific aerobic capacity that will help fuel even very difficult anaerobic activity. Now why I say running low heart rate is ok...because if you are in shape (aerobic) ...125 to 140 bpm means the activity isn't too intense but will stimulate the aerobic adaptation...running for pace only means you run not considering the substrate you use to move so the adaptation that follows will vary and sometimes even be opposite (ruining fast high heart rate is actually a bad adaptation long term because you are doing anaerobic for aerobic activity) ...anyway I also know alot of physiology....

    @pat kob what about stimulants and temperature? You can vary 30+ bpm if you simply intake stimulants in a warmth environment vs not intaking stimulants in a cold environment. Plus genetics can influence your bpm with no regards to fitness level.

  104. pat kob

    pat kobPrije 9 dana

    Infact if you stay at 125 to 135 bpm you will actually run at a correct speed for your fitness level and knee capacity

  107. Hessel Sieburgh

    Hessel SieburghPrije 11 dana

    The point about sports was so true, people who just started sports that demand some skill level to train hard, like table tennis or tennis, aren’t good cardio unless you’re actually at the skill level needed. Table tennis is an easy sport at beginner/camping level and I get why people don’t consider that a sport at that level. But at higher, provincial or national, levels it takes a lot of training. A lot of which is very alike to either HIIT or aerobics.
