I can do it thats no problem but there have been a lot of posts lately saying that a lot of steady state cardio isn’t good.
Isn’t good for what? You may want to be careful who you take the word of. There is little in training that is “good” for everybody or “bad” for everybody. Your goal is to find what works for you, not what you read from someone in a post on an internet forum, especially if that person is simply quoting studies with little real world experience. Most bodybuilders use “steady state” (what is the deal with the new terminology floating around lately for simple shit like “walking on a treadmill”?) when dieting for contests. Why overcomplicate things? What are your overall goals? Do you have enough muscle on you to worry this much about dieting down?
Why do you think walking is bad for you? Did someone imply that “high intensity interval training” is the ONLY way you should train? Wouldn’t that depend on where you are now physically and where you are trying to get to?[/quote]
Interesting points as usual Professor X. I started Lonnie Lowery’s “100 workouts to Lean City” two weeks ago and I really like it. I am leaner (at least I feel leaner)and have noticed that it has not hurt my weightlifting at all.
I asked Chad Waterbury his opinion on this type of training via e-mail and he doesn’t like it. Will I continue to do it even though Chad thinks it isn’t as effective as HIIT or that it can affect muscle loss? Of course! I will continue to do it until I am sure it is not good for my body.
Sometimes we just have to go do it, in spite of what other “experts” say. I love Chad’s stuff, but even he told me, “If it works for you, do it. If not, do HIIT for 15 minutes”. Chart your own course, people.
