Interval Training - 8 seconds for fat loss......



I have posted about this before and also mentioned this study in the science posting over at hillfit. Interesting to see it reported and demonstrated.



The science is in a PhD thesis here.

However, for the steady state group, they only used 60% of VO2max at 60 rpm. That is a very easy workout so it shouldn't be surprising they didn't see much effect.

The thing is, 60% of vo2 max is what is often prescribed for people to "stay in the fat burn zone", so I think is is a valid comparison.

Oh puuhleeez. If the science is based on the "fat zone myth" then it isn't science. Crank those lard-butts up to 75% for the same time as the HIIE and then see what happens.

75% Vo2max (which corresponds to about 83% of maximum heart rate)is not possible to maintain for any length of time by unfit, overweight people. Therefore the puuhleeez-poster's suggestion is of no practical relevance.

The video no longer works. It says it is private. So we cannot view it. Can you find another video that we can watch?
