Im curious to hear what you guys think about this, as I'm designing a new program
It would seem that resistance training burns the most fat - when you're at rest, you're burning more after a good heavy workout sesh, so over time with a good resistance routine one should be burning away fat.
In the past, I have done a lot of stuff which is supposed to aid in burning fat. Lots of cardio, varying from short (10 minutes after workout) to long (track and field training + gym). My most recent was interval training (sprint/jog transitions) after a workout.
What I discovered was that my V02 max and endurance for running skyrocketed within about 4 or 5 weeks of consistent interval training, and after 7 weeks I was in excellent shape for sprinting and running. But I found that in terms of fat loss, I was staying relatively the same.
Just for reference, I'm not looking to lose a ton here - I'm 5'9" 175 when built, but I dropped about 10lbs off that and replaced it with 5-10lbs of fat over a 3mnth break. I want to drop to 10% bodyfat if possible
So is the cardio really important here? Or should I be focusing on the weight routine and diet as the most important?
