    I will...I tend to stick to my diet and excersize (i'm cutting) better at school. First cheat meal in a week and hit the gym since it has been open and cardio every day. I'm doing well so far. This weekend I'm really gonna tune in my diet and get evrything measured out and stuff since I just bought a scale too. Thanks man and stop by more often.

    Good to see you getting regular in here. (I mean posting, not bowel movements).
    Session looked good. Glad you're staying strict.

    I'll post yesterday's session. It wasn't much because after that abs and chest session the other day I could barely move. Everytime I would lay down on the bench it felt like someone was stabbing me. My abs are being pussies.

    Just did cardio today. Today was an off day from the gym. Tomorrow is shoulder's and tri's.

    Cardio: 10 minute run around campus. Felt good. The abs are finally starting to feel better and I know the running really helped them too.

    The workouts are looking really good there sweetie

    You should do more cardio though, especially since you're cutting I like to do at least 20 minutes. I'll pull up the chart Ironslave had if you want, but around 20 minutes is where your EPOC starts to pick up (in most cases).

    I know I need to do more cardio...I just have to work up to it. But pull up that chart if you get a chance.

    So in other words...20-40 minutes of medium to intense excersize after a workout is optimum for fat burning. Correct?

    I guess it depends on how you look at it...your metabolism is elevated longer after a workout if you do a medium to high intensity workout for longer than 20 minutes than a lot of other cardio you could do.

    However, a lot of people say keeping your heart rate between about 110-120 BPM is optimum for fat burning and minimizing muscle loss, and that's a pretty low-intensity workout.

    What's important is that while this chart has less than 10 of its points under the 20 minute mark, you can see an upward trend in EPOC as you increase the time spent doing the exercise. The points at 20 minutes or below have pretty low levels of EPOC except for the really high intensity stuff, like 110% of your V02 max.

    I got it...I guess I'm not being patient enough. I think running for shorter periods of time at a greater intensity fits into my schedule better b/c of homework and studying and stuff. I get what you are saying though.

    It's all good, brother. At least you're doing something, and if it's at a really high intensity you'll still definitely get something out of it.

    Nice skullcrushers there
