Is that the same basic thing as hiit training?


Yes, it is the same thing really. It is cool because it only takes 20 minutes out of your day and really cranks up the metabolism all day. You end up burning more calories throughout the day than if you spent the 90 minutes on the treadmill. Of course you can always do your 20 HIT minutes and then do some low intensity stuff for 30-40 minutes after and burn even more calories.

Normally for my cardio I run hills at this split

I jog along the bottom of the hill back and forth to warm up.

Stretch

jog along the base again to start my hr back up after my stretches

sprint up the hill and run down 3x

job along the bottom back and forth for 5 mins

sprint up the hill and run down 3x

job along the bottom back and forth for 5 mins

sprint up the hill and run down 5x

5 min cool down job.

I like to run outside when its nice so this is what I normally do when it is not raining!

Bobbycore,
So you think I should try running on the threadmill with that intensity plan? I hate to run and would rather walk for hours than run for minutes but if it'll work i'll try it. I'm going to give that a try and up my calorie intake. I'll be sure to let you all know about my progress. Thanks for all the help everyone.

Hi there,

Heres the Zig Zag Approach for

Quote:
Losing total bodyweight and fat while gaining lean body mass:

For 4 to 5 days each week (especially on off days and light-training days), reduce 2 calories per lean bodyweight and spread it amount 5 meals.

So basically you need to get your bodyfat, which is 17%, and multiply it with your body weight which is 135, and you get 22.95 which is the amount of pounds in fat that your body has. Minus the pounds of fat by 135 and you will get 112.1 which is your lean bodyweight. Then multiply the lean bodyweight, 112.1 x 2 and you get 224 calories. So minus 224 calories from your current diet.

For the remaining 2 to 3 days each week, add 2 calories per lean bodyweight and spread it amount 5 meals. So what you do here is add 224 to your current diet.

Don't forget to adjust your calories upward each month to meet the needs of your lean body mass.

(Hatfield 526)


This is just a general guideline and does not include what to eat, it is just in speaking of calories in general. As for what to eat, most would start at a 1-2-3 ratio. 1 part fat, 2 part protien, and 3 parts carbohydrates. That means you would calculate this out of your entire daily caloric intake.

Well I see that many people are helping here which can be a bit of a conflict since everyone is giving different advice on working out and such, so I'll stop my assistance here. If you need me you know where to find me.

Naw I am not saying that you should do it, just presenting an option for some interval high intesity training. It is refreshing to be outside sometimes rather than surrounded by walls and mirrors.

I personally love the outdoors when it is sunny so I am drawn to it at all times. Plus you can get a good tan while running!!!

WOW!!! :shock: She really has a stunning body!

I think it's great if girls are working out to get more athletic. Nowadays girls mostly want to have a body like Britney Spears, but all they do is just eat less and less... :roll:

I used to be one of those girls. Actually, I wanted to look like Jessica Simpson :) But I started meeting and seeing all of these girls who weighed the same as me or more and were shorter than me and I thought it was unfair that they looked so good. All of them said the secret was strength training so I decided to give that a try. I realized muscle looks a lot better than fat. I'm actually very proud of myself for coming to this conclusion and it only took me 27 yrs :wink:

What I say in this situation is that as long as you are happy AND HEALTHY then all is ok. There is a mandatory balance in this world of skinny to fat people and that balance can be shifted one way or the other. Right now it is shifted towards the fat, thus the somewhat skinny Jessica Simpson is what we call "in shape". Lets say that the world thins up, then the skinny will actually hit below 10% body fat.

So, if you would like to obtain a leaner more muscular physique then go for it. If that is what makes you happy then reach up and push the bar as high as you can set it. Do not let anyone, especially men, that you are either too skinny or too fat.....there is no such thing. There are men and women out there who are attracted to all varieties of ladies.

I encourage my girlfriend to look the way she wants to look and tell her I will help her in getting there. And I think that is the way it should be.

I'm a skinny guy and struggle with fat on the same area. :? I think 0 sugars and refined carbs are a must and lots o' cardio as well. You seem to have a very healthy diet, though. :)
