Re: I have one month of gym use

Thanks a lot for the reply mate :) I understand that for proper and sustained fat loss that I need to keep going to the gym for more than one month, but the reason I only have one month is because I'm going to be travelling around Australia in June, then doing a bit of Thailand in July, and going to...

I have one month of gym use

Hi folks, I've just moved into an apartment complex with a small gym, but I'm only here for a month and want to use that time as efficiently as possible so was wondering how best to maximise fat loss over that period, as that is my aim. It's actually quite well kitted out with free weights, and has ...

@Mr_Schneebly: The key to HIIT is the high intensity. If you can do a cardio program for more than 20-30 minutes, it isn't high intensity. I believe that the 20-30 minute crossover from glycogen (sugar) to fat burning applies to traditional LSD type cardio. HIIT adherants claim that much of the fat...

Duration of HIIT

Hi everyone, I was just wondering how long a HIIT workout should last to get optimal results? I've read that 20-30 mins of HIIT is enough, but someone I know in the medical industry told me that it's only after 20 minutes of hard exercise that you start to burn fat, and that anything before that is ...

Fat in your diet doesn't equal fat on your body. Most dietary fat is metabolized for energy, unless there is a lot of carbs around. Carbs stimulate insulin production which in turn (way over-simplified here) leads to fat storage. So carbs in the diet lead to fat on the body. The only time that I've...

Thanks again guys. The problem I'm having (as you've identified) is breaking the cycle of how I've eaten before! I have a couple more questions about this way of eating (I'm sorry about this, I've never done it this way before!). 1. By eating a lot of fat, won't I end up just keeping fat on my body?...

Thanks a lot guys :)

When I eat meat at mealtimes it's always lean - chicken, fish, lean beef etc. I thought that vegetables counted as a carb source, is that wrong?

I'll give those tips a go :) Do oats count as a carb source? I was going to have oats in the morning to fuel my cycle ride into work!

No carbs in the evening?

Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone had any advice on my carb intake as I am trying to lose fat. I've read some of the stickies about carbs etc. but can't see anything about not eating carbs after, say, 5pm, which is something I've heard about before as a strategy to lose weight. I was just wonde...

Thanks again guys. Jungledoc - I used that link to come up with my own plan :) It's a slight variation of one of Javorek's workouts :) Tim - Thanks for the advice. I haven't been to the gym for a month or so, so I was going to start pretty light anyway to get my body back into the gym way of things ...

I've used this one in the past, it really, really sucks to do it, but when you got a proper diet I think this is the training to do. http://www.tmuscle.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance/real_fast_fat_loss Thanks :) That's the article I read when I came up with the original pl...

How's this for a complex barbell workout (used the javorek website linked in the sticky for some ideas) with a few bodyweight exercises at the end. This workout is geared to me, as I need to watch my knees and lower back, with me injuring them in the past (not through poor form in the gym - it was o...

I think I understand your questions, but I think that some terminology has you confused. "Cardio" and weights are not opposite. Cardio can be done with weights. HIIT is intensive cardio work, and can easily be done with weights. "Cardio" and "strength" are in a sense opposite, in that the first is ...

Hi guys, I've had some success with my fat burning, but I've been doing a lot of it at home, so haven't been doing as well as I could. However, I am moving house soon and will be near a huge gym, so will be signing up immediately and really going at it. I was just looking on the internet for some HI...

Really struggling for protein intake

Hi everyone I'm on a cut at the moment, and have been exercising hard to burn the calories and making sure I eat properly, but I'm finding the diet very difficult to get right. I've worked out that to lose weight I should be taking in 2800 calories a day, and at a ratio of 40P/30C/30F, that would gi...

Thanks :) Can I also ask - what's the best way to determine progress, and what are some realistic goals when it comes to fat burning? I want to burn fat and leave as much muscle mass as possible, so I'm aiming for a loss of around 1lb a week, is that right? And are body fat calipers of any use to me...
