Done my first ever morning cardio!!

In the gym for 7:03am and ran for 27.5 minutes, 2.6 miles burning 300kcals (according to hte machine) did it on an empty stomach bar a cup of tea and 2 caffiene pills. If I keep this up 3-4 times a week I take it Im on track to lose something (bar sleep)?

Dont know how my legs are going to cope with squats tonight but fukc it.

    Unfortunately significant fat-loss will only occur if you start training at 6.59am and run for 28.3 minutes.

    Presuming you're trying to burn as much fat as possible, you want to keep your heart rate fairly low.

    I personally work at ~130 bpm.

    This why I don't jog for fat loss, way too hard to keep my HR low.

    stationary bike is much easier

    It's finally arrived....PM Neb for swaps!

    Hi Plug.

    IMO i would like to see you drop the speed to around 4mph and walk, then extend duration to 50 mins.

    Also drop the cup of tea, IMO dont risk an insulin rise as AM cardio results are wholly dependent on not effecting your insulin levels. I don't even brush my teeth.

    The above with consistency will give good fat loss if the rest of your training and nutrition is in order.

    I personally work at ~130 bpm.
    this is contrary to everything i've learnt regarding cardio intensity for efficient fat loss. here's an article that contradicts this theory and sums up the argument pretty well...........

    High Intensity Interval Cardio Training (HIIT)
    For all those interested in efficient fat loss

    Ingrid Marcum writes:

    The reason that High Intensity Interval Training works better for fat loss is this: When you do a cardio session at the same pace the whole time, your body goes into what is called steady state. This means that your body has adjusted itself to the speed you are going and tries hard to conserve energy (calories). You will be able to avoid this and burn more calories and FAT by doing the interval training.

    The easiest way that I tell people to do it is to start off at a good pace for 5 minutes. Then take up the intensity on the machine and go as hard and as fast as you possibly can for a minute and then bring it back down for a minute or two — however long it takes for you to recover enough to do it again. ANY cardio machine will work — I like the treadmill and the elliptical trainer the best.

    Another easy way to introduce yourself to this kind of cardio without killing yourself right off the bat is simply to keep changing your speed and intensity level every two minutes or so — go up and down — challenge yourself. This will "trick" your body into burning more calories since it can not achieve steady state.

    When it comes to the heart rate question— whether to stay lower or higher — this is your answer. At a lower % of max heart rate (65%), a larger percentage of calories burned come from fat than at a higher heart rate (75-85%). HOWEVER, despite the percentages, you will burn more total calories and therefore more total fat calories at a higher heart rate.
