Hi, I’m using a heart belt to monitor my BPM while running and I’d like to understand how to use the HR zones for lowering BF.
I’m trying to lose fat in 2 ways: running for a long time ~60 min and high intensity intervals (HIIT) for 16-20 minutes.
I found out that in my HIIT I usually run in my VO2Max zone and in my 60 minutes runs I’m usually in the anaerobic state.
I don’t think I should be in these zones for fat burning. For my HIIT I think I should be in the anaerobic zone and for the running maybe in the aerobic zone.
It’s a bit unclear for me and I’d appreciate an answer to the question bellow:
For maximal fat burning in what zone should I be for a 60 minutes run and in what zone(s) should I be for a 20 minutes HIIT training.
