T Nation | The Death of Steady State Cardio

T Nation | The Death of Steady State Cardio.

During the cold weather months I started thinking about reducing my miles on the bike and upping the intensity. This leads to either doing intervals or shorter rides with a higher percentage of effort versus max capability. I like it.

I can’t speak for every word in this article but what it generally says has matched my findings.

Here’s what you need to know…

•  Ironically, spending 20 hours a week in the “fat burning zone” leads to very little fat loss and a lot of muscle loss. The result? Looking like a flabby runner.
•  Steady state cardio should be reserved for endurance athletes, not for those seeking fat loss and awesome body composition. Physique competitors don’t even need traditional long-duration cardio.
•  Metabolic interval training can be made even better with advanced work-to-recovery ratios and a few select tools.

Want to know the rules of riding?  Follow the link, read and then go ride.  I’m not going to cover any of them.  Don’t like it?  See Rule #5.

From their site:

We are the Keepers of the Cog. In so being, we also maintain the sacred text wherein lie the simple truths of cycling etiquette known as The Rules. It is in our trust to maintain and endorse this list.

The Rules lie at the beginning of The Path to La Vie Velominatus, not at the end; learning to balance them against one another and to welcome them all into your life as a Velominatus is a never-ending struggle waged between form and function as we continue along The Path towards transcension.
