Whoa there, hardass....
I know there are plenty of you ready to chime in and say that walking is "for pussies"...
Here are a few main points from the article:
"Many who focus on just "calories" and the slash and dash mentality end up with destructive patterns -- extreme calorie cuts and/or excessive aerobics. This sets off an alarm state in the body where the body sheds muscle tissue to lessen energy demands and stores/hoards body fat as a survival response"
"The calories burned during an exercise session are relatively small compared to the amount burned the other 23 hours of the day during the recovery process (at rest). Most fat oxidation occurs between training sessions, not during. As such your exercise sessions should primarily be geared towards building muscle and boosting the metabolism, not "burning fat"
..I am currently "bulking" aka eating to gain lean muscle. I have been incorporating walking into my schedule every day..
Let the discussion begin. What are your opinions on walking as opposed to all out 20 or 30 minutes on the treadmill?
Do you think it is better for a bulkers cardio?
