Help! I'm reading conflicting information here...
I'm a 32 year old male, currently at ~15.5% body fat, trying to get back down to ~10% body fat (and the corresponding waistline) where I was roughly 4 years ago, before an injury took me out of regular exercise.
In the book "Yoga for Regular Guys", Dr. Craig Aaron ( http://www.yoga-doc.com
) describes his belief that working out above your maximum aerobic heart rate is counterproductive to achieving the fastest fat loss.
On her site Total Fitness Nework, Therese Iknoian says "Forget the myths about going slower or at a lower intensity to burn more fat." ( http://www.totalfitnessnetwork.com/cgi- ... Speed.html
Which is it? Should I keep running at the pace I am? Should I run for the same duration at a lower heart rate, or the same distance at a lower heart rate? My goal at the moment, again, is fat loss.
Have there been any (potentially verified by other ones) medical studies proving or disproving the exercise intensity vs fat loss question?
Thanks in advance,
