    Curtis Harwell & Kim Duke Discuss Best Cardio Exercises For Fat Loss

    What Is The Best Cardio Workout For Burning Off Fat?

    For quite a while it has been accepted that low-intensity cardio was the best for burning fat. According to studies this method burned the calories primarily from fat. This has recently been disproved, as a new and exciting way to perform cardio has arisen.

    The best cardio for burning off that stubborn fat will have you in the gym shorter than you'd expect. This cardio is called HIIT-High Intensity Interval Training. The concept is pretty simple.

    You transition from low-moderate intensity intervals to very high intensity intervals. If you judge by the readout on the given exercise machine, you might assume that going at a low intensity for 30-45 minutes would burn more calories than 15 minutes OR LESS utilizing HIIT. This is not true, however, as many of the calories you burn come after you leave the gym (When performing HIIT).

    15 minutes may seem to good to be true to lose weight, but it is not. However, you must keep in mind this is no walk in the park. This is very demanding, but extremely rewarding and time-saving. HIIT will support your metabolism so that you are burning calories later in the day. You will burn fat if calories out exceed calories in, and you will expend more calories by choosing HIIT.

    HIIT can be performed on many different exercise machines, as well as outside or on the track. In all situations, make sure to warm up for about 3-5 minutes. Once you are ready to go, you will begin your intervals.

    Kelli and Curtis Discussing Lifting Weights vs Cardio For Fat Loss

    in Fitness

    The first reason we are going to give weight training a point in the fat loss wars against cardio training is due to the calorie burn after the workout is completed.

    Studies have demonstrated that after a weight training workout, the metabolism can be boosted for up to 36 hours post-workout, meaning rather than burning say 60 calories an hour while sitting and watching TV, you're burning 70. While you may think, 'Big deal - 10 extra calories', when you multiply this by 36 hours, you can see what a huge difference that makes in your daily calorie expenditure over that day and a half.

    When you figure out that on a monthly rate, it becomes even clearer how regular participation in a weight lifting session will really increase your calorie burning and thus fat burning capacity.

    With cardio training, you might get an extra 40-80 calories burned after a moderate paced session, and this will depend upon the exact intensity and duration of the workout.

    Best Triplets in NFL with Matt Chatham - Next Fan Up - 6/20/15

    in Football

    We take a break from our preseason division previews with a special guest, Matt Chatham!  He's an 8 year NFL veteran, playing for the Patriots and the Jets, the founder of FootballbyFootball.com and host of blogtalkradio.com/footballbyfootball.  

    When talking about the best triplets in the NFL (combo of QB, WR, RB) you need to look at value.  Strict production, probably start in Green Bay for Matt.  Matt ranks them Green Bay, Seattle, Pittsburgh - the Seattle conversation needs to include Jimmy Graham as a WR.  

    Mark brings up the question, who's next though?  Matt thinks there are RBs that are unproven but will help some teams jump into the conversation and starts with Detroit and Amir Abdullah, Tevin Coleman in Atlanta and San Diego got Melvin Gordan.  

    Pod goes to the Patriots and mentions that they could be a superior triplet combo without a RB.  Matt mentions Julian Edleman is a little better than he might get credit for.  

    In a perfect world, you double a WR and take him out of the game.  To shut down the RB, you're playing an 8 man box.  So the trio conversation is fun, because if you draw a double somewhere, the other spot can dominate.

    Let's not sleep on the Bengals?  Andy Dalton isn't as bad as he gets a rap for.  

    Hey, how about dem Cowboys?  They believe they can be a success without Demarco Murray.  Are the Cowboys the best Oline in the NFL?  

    So who is the worst? Cleveland or Jacksonville?

    This is the only time in the NFL that there's a break from football.  Teams are crossing their fingers and holding their breath.  Matt used to head to Colorado to take some reps in elevation to improve his cardio.
