The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    I've heard from more than a few sources that you need to elevate your heart rate for at least 20-30 minutes to start burning fat, so you should be good to go, assuming you're working up a decent sweat

    I'd shoot for 45 minutes per session 4 times per week
    be sure to monitor your heart rate as thats key
    also the interval/step/ladder type routines are best

    Final comment, treadmills can shorten your stride, and provide just as much shock to your joints as running, so you'd probably be better off on a lower impact device like an eliptical machine

    I use a threadmill for my cardio, i do long strides tho.. i would do HIIT but since i broke my ankle the Dr. says i should not run since its way too much pressure, anyway.. i would use a bike... but... the hip abduction thingy that all the hot women use is RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE TREADMILLS
