Hi, I keep getting mixed answers and maybe someone educated on this can help me out. I'm 25 y/o, I'm 6' and I've always had a bulky build. Think defense lineman build. After HS I became a consultant and used that for my excuse to be lazy and get obese. I was at 269lbs about 6 weeks ago. I'm down to 259 right now. Right now I lift on M-W-F in the mornings and then do cardio after. I do cardio at least 3 of the other 4 days of the week I'm not lifting. Tuesdays and Thursdays I swim, the other days I'm using machines. Here are my questions about the machines. Based on what I'm doing, should I be going for high intensity cardio or low intensity? My goal is fat loss. I'm getting mixed signals. Some people are telling me that low intensity is bullshit, some are telling me if you're not dying you're not working it off. Edit: Why I am posting this is I was on a stair machine the other day and it said to keep my heart rate between 135-140BPM. Being 260lbs, I get my heart rate going just by fucking breathing. By the end of the workout, yeah my legs definitely felt it and I was definitely sweating my ass off. But I mean, it wasn't beating me up. I was kinda like 'rusrs?'. Next day I rode 7 miles on the bike in 30 minutes in random mode, killed myself, and it was like 'GG u lost 200calories' and I was like what the fuck I just killed myself? Please, some advice would be awesome. Thanks.
