It's very functional. Not everyone there drives a car, you know. When you go to London, Paris and Rome, do you see these men carrying bags with pirate scarves?
Quote: Originally Posted by Eason I recall some studies where it was found that HIIT and weightlifting, even supersetted, were incompatible as far as kcal expenditure.

It's not much of an argument if you don't understand how people build strength (muscle) versus high altitude training, which is about restricting air-flow, which is about breathing and not muscle. The reason your example doesn't work is because climbing a hill with a heavier weight is completely different than putting on a mask. A mask restricts airflow which doesn't make your muscles stronger but works by making your body use the oxygen more effectively. Putting on a...

I would think that the only reason poeple started working out in the first place is because thier everyday activities couldnt keep a healthy body. There was a time when people never worked out to kept a healthy body. A lot of mechanics, farmers, and factory workers are very strong and healthy people... and they never work out. My dad is 50 and has never worked...
adversity04, Please stop... Your analogy is not good because walking up the hill with 20 lbs makes you stronger. It's resistance. That's exactly what I mean by you didn't understand what the article proposed. We were talking about altitude training, not resistance training. edit: please don't reply with "we weren't talking about altitude training, we were talking about resistance training"

but, in that case, walking is one of the better activities since it breaks down fat most right? I think the thing is cardio is a fast way to lose calories immediately. Lifting vigorously is good but even the long term effects aren't going to be as effective in burning calories than cardio for the same period of time. The time factor is largely understated - you really have to wait a long long time (imo 1-2 months before you see any change is long) to see the...

I know this is going to vary depending on the intensity of your workout, the specific exercises involved, and the person in question, but what do people think the ballpark calorie consumption per hour will be during lifting, say high intensity lifting on compound exercises, 30 sets of 10 reps, 1.5 minutes rest between sets, for say, a 200...
adversity04, When you do research, perform more than 1 google search. Judge your sources according to what is known and filter out results accordingly. Not every source will be equal in integrity.
