Hard Workouts



Recommended Posts

I was told today (well Tuesday afternoon) that I could have my surgery in September sometime. Not sure when but the office said they couldn't imagine me NOT getting the approval. So I figure on mid to late September. I want to get back to martial arts as soon as I can. I practice Krav Maga, an Israeli combat martial arts system. Given the high violent nature of the art, is it reasonable to resume practice in 4-6 weeks?

Is that a reasonable time-frame?

Also, on a side note, I have been told two different things about weight loss exercising. For WEIGHT loss, high intensity workouts in short duration burn a lot more calories but the percentage of fat loss is lower (approx 15%). For FAT loss, maintaining a target heart rate of around 60-65% BPM of your max for a long duration burns fewer calories but more adipose tissue (fat). what's everyone's take on this?

I believe the jury is still out on HIIT be steady state cardio. Steady state cardio can get boring. Do both! Do cardio on the rest days from HIIT. There are also many benefits from both.

Its more important that you find an activity or exercise you like doing, and can do the most of, because your food diet will have the largest impact on your weight loss. Even if steady state cardio is 15% better, is it worth it if you don't like it? That said, I do cardio because I want to do running and increase my distance,.and I would not change it if HIIT was definitely better.
