Terrible article

Found this article http://www.brianmac.demon.co.uk/articles/scni26a2.htm written by a guy who's site I used to be a member of some years ago when I was still learning. He is also the guy who recommended I take the WABBA qualifications (yeah, great advice) as he actually taught with them and you can tell the type of nonsense they used to teach as this guy swallowed their entire philosophy and now reproduces it on his own site.

These are the worst two sections IMO:

Always remember that fat loss is all about long term goals.

Burning fat takes time, but the more you do it the easier it becomes and the greater the amount of fat burned will be. When performing fat burning exercise it takes about 20 minutes for an unconditioned person to actually start burning fat. An average conditioned person will take about 10 minutes, whereas an elite Tour De France athlete takes only about 5 minutes. This is an important fact as it shows that for an unconditioned person, 20 minutes of fat burning exercise is not enough. The aim, therefore, is to progressively and safely reach 45 minutes. It takes a fit person about 11 sessions of a 45 minutes fat burning exercise period to burn 1 lb of fat, which is 3500 kcal. People new to exercise will always take longer.

Never alternate between cardiovascular equipment when performing fat burning cardiovascular work

It is generally accepted that when you come off one piece of cardiovascular equipment and go onto another, that it is going to take between 8 to 10 minutes before you reach full fat burning potential again on the subsequent piece of cardiovascular equipment. However this will depend on your level of fitness and your percentage of Red Slow Twitch and Intermediate Twitch muscle fibres. The fitter you are and the more aerobic and intermediate muscle fibres you have, the quicker you will reach the fat burning zone again.

In addition to this, during any 4 to 6 or 8 to 12 week fat burning meso cycle you must always use exactly the same exercises during the entire meso cycle so that you ensure maximum muscle fibre recruitment and that the body can learn the most effective way in which to perform this exercise, the most efficient way of processing nutrients and removing waste products, and also the best way of maintaining and recovering from the demands imposed. The stationary exercise bike without moving handles is the best piece of equipment for performing your fat burning cardiovascular work on, as it keeps the heart rate at a much more stable level. This means that you can get the maximum amount of fat burning possible out of each session by keeping your heart rate in the correct zone throughout the entire session.

    LOL... I can't decide which one is worse than the other.

    I've actually used that site before for certain type of info.. It has some good sections to it, but that... that is just awful.
