How Much Fat Are You Burning On The Cardio Machine?
If you stay in the fat burning zone, you will burn a higher PERCENTAGE of calories from fat than you would if you worked out more intensely. But if you move out of the fat burning zone and workout more intensely, you will burn less percentage but will burn more CALORIES.
Do the math. If you want to burn the most fat, workout more intensely... outside of the fat burning zone. Otherwise, stay within the fat-burning zone, but just workout a bit longer.
Always check with your physician before beginning any exercise program.
