It does make sense. Walk or sprint!

Walk is best and i think it is good to start doing walk everyday. Its a best exercise i must say. I do cardio and i am sure that cardio is good for health and fitness and there is no any fat issue with doing regular cardio.

When I drop into the Single digit BF.. All I ever do is crank the incline up to 15% and walk at 3-4.5mph for 20-30min everyday.. Along with eating cleaner.. I do just fine... Just watch a TV show doing it and time flies by....

Matter of fact I need to start it up again...

If your looking to drop fat and increase your lung capacity for your workouts.. then HIIT style Cardio is were its at.

With that said.. I think I'm going to work in a few outdoor HIIT style cardio as well..

I have a huge long hill in my backyard and a Drag sled. Since summer is right around the corner. I can start these back up. I need something to raise my Heart rate more....

It appears, from what I can take from the "context" of his post, is that he is making a correlation between a decreased volume in training (and does not specify what this is) and an increase in cardio, and assuming between these two, that the body will adjust to the cardio more because of the decreased volume in weight training.

This is not a solid thought process. For many reasons. First, people can be different, and the adaption process can likewise be different between people. Second, we do not know the numeric data of training prior to the drop in volume as it relates to the specific drop in training, and most know, that it takes LESS volume to maintain muscle as compared relatively to the volume of trying to increase muscle mass (dependent).

In addition, we do not know the numeric values of the persons diet components, which would play a major role in adaptive decisions between the weight training volume and cardio. Further, we do not know the intensity of the cardio (or its length), the personal weight reduction (as compared to when he was not dieting down, as calorie needs can go down in personal weight loss), nor the numeric data of the volume of training, length of deficit dieting (assuming a deficit), and can not come to the conclusion, that energy expenditure is less, because there are far too many unknown personal variables.

His statement is far too broad, to have any validity. And, as it stands, would completely ignore this advice.

I originally read past this quickly, but when I stop & think about it, I don't buy it:

Quote:
Now how does one become more efficient at slow, aerobic cardio? By decreasing overall energy output, which means burning fewer calories to do the same activity.
The principle of Specific Adaptation will dictate: greater aerobic energy demand -> increase capacity (higher vO2 max, more mitochondria, etc). Lower overall energy output is more likely the adaptation to lower energy supply (like starvation).

I didn't read any of the article, I just recall that I read through a study, a while ago, that showed increases in fat levels on calves of runners.

Cardio, is good either way, IMO, and if we listened to all the studies, we'd never exercise anyway, since they all seem to contradict anything and everything that anyone tries to do.

Absolutely true. And they are spending millions on that ...

Oddly enough, I'm currently in prep for a comp and I'm doing 30 minutes. 5X/week low intensity on home treadmill, 2 minutes slow walk, 3 min fast walk. No running or jogging. Seems to be working OK for me so far.
