thanks for the info .. :) I was looking for running shoes too ... Yeah consistent workout will raise your basal metabolism rate and that increases your cal burning rate ... Which means weight loss!!!

Currently adopt mixture of interval training (running at 80% effort + slow jog) + free weight workout (chinup, pressup, dips), and calories monitoring (intake = metabolism rate), a bit more carb on training days. Result = Shed off 10kg in 6 months, another 3 kg in the next 6 months; body fats dropped 6%, waist reduced 6".

Is a slow jog for long distance better than a quick run at a shorter distance?

What is long distance to u? 5, 10 or 21km? I think long slow runs (21km) at 60% max heart rate is best [thumbsup]

For how long - distance and/or time wise - do u jog each time? :)

 

I'm about 79kg now, standing at 177cm. My BMI is 25 - in the overweight zone. Trying to drop my weight to at least 74kg. But not been v successful. But mostly my fault. Bad diet and little consistent exercise.

 

jogging will help. I jog 3 to 4 times a week for the past year or so, wt drop abt 5kg. U feel more energytic too.

i find the most effective way to lose weight is to jog regularly. no other better way. of coz got other ways of doing it, but jogging is most effective in terms of low cost and most conveinent.

 

other ppl say go gym or go swimming... yeah can be done, but its alot more troublesome, right? u got to drive or go to a venue to do gym or swim. how committed are you to do this over a period of time?

 

jogging is so easy and its free. just put running shoes and u can run rightaway. no need to drive, no need to bring swimming trunks......

 

for me, my body reacts alot to jogging. i just started jogging recently. haven't jog for 4-5 years. i climbed 3-4 stairs, i was panting like mad... my waist got bigger, got problem wearing my pants and jeans....

 

then i decided to jog again. just after 3 regular jogs of 30 mins each, i already can feel the difference. climb stairs, no problem. my pants all can wear, feel more alert, tummy become smaller

 

guess my body is still adaptable. not everyone responds the same way.

always start slow n shorter run. My average run is abt 5km run. If I on form, I will go up to 8 to 10km. No need to stress yourself over it, built up the milage slowly. Enjoy yr run :)

depends on individual and the fitness goals for example building muscle, improve stamina, chest, triceps, biceps etc

and how fast the wants to see their results.

a programs has to be design for each individual to achieve what they wants.

if you just wants to lose weight just by running and simple cardio, it wont work in this way.

i have been training since i was 20 and exercising helps you look younger, healtheir

even if you have all the money in the world but you deesnt have the ability to spend it, wealth doesnt makes you any difference anymore

invest in your health is more of important than making all the money yet in the end you have to pay for your medical problem

without guilded exercise you get injuries you doesnt knows youe MHR maiximum heart rate, fat burning zone etc...

As a professional in this field this thread is for those looking to enhance their health the right way.

 

So, "professional", what will you bring to this thread?

 

In order to "enhance my health", ie increase muscle mass, lower body fat, what should my diet breakdown be like in terms of macronutrients?

 

In order to "enhance my health", how should I train? Steady state cardio? High intensity? High intensity interval? Should I lift weights?

Yup, every body works differently. I started jogging/running short distance of 2.4km since 3 months ago twice every week. But I climb 5 stories of stairs I still will get tired. [laugh]

Dudes , here.. I need a serious help.. My BMI is a damn 33.. How to reduce it?

 

Diet is the most important, can start by avoiding supper(if its your habit). Also, you can try not to eat anything after 6pm other than fruits and veg. I used to do that for 2weeks, only eating an apple for dinner while having proper breakfast and dinner, and I lost 2kg without working out.

Yes one of the key is breakfast .. You boost your metabolism and that helps burn your Cal ... Fruits and veg throw in fibers that helps a whole lot slowing down cal absorbtiin tru adsorbtion ...
