Default Re: Tip of the Week: Cardiovascular System and Fat Burning

I'm thinking something like the "talk/sing" test while exercising.
Let's say I'm doing cardio, and I can still talk at 150BPM with out gasping, but if I kick it up to say 165, and can talk, with pauses with breathing. My threshold might be somewhere in between.

Although it wold be difficult to find out anything exact your idea would be a great estimate! Lactic Acid would be another sign you are working anaerobicly.

"The truth Iíve discovered is that you donít have to lift enormous weights to grow muscle. By using stricter form, slower negatives, and stretching between sets you can get an incredible pump in all your workouts. Numbers are an abstraction, especially to muscles. Your body doesnít know the absolute weight of what you lift, it only recognizes how heavy it feels. The secret is to make lighter weights feel heavier. " - Frank Zane
