I'm trying to lower my bf% and don't know what training zone is best. Here is something I found:

It says going 50-70% burns more fat calories than going 70-80%. Anyone know if this is true? What intesity level have you guys had success with?

It doesn't matter whether its fat calories or not, just the quantity of calories used.

I don't go by heart rate zone, I shoot for a QED of 1.5

65%-85% is what we use at the gym i work for.

220-age-bpm=x

x(.85)=y

y+bpm = 85%

do the same to figure out 65

Alright, so using Google to try and figure it out like a good person, the best I come up with is "quod erat demonstrandum." Which is a math term for proving theories.. so I'm pretty sure thats not what you meant by QED.. little help?

Quantum Electrodynamics has Zero Radius of Convergence

Summarized from Toichiro Kinoshita Quantum Electrodynamics is the best tested theory on earth (perhaps in the universe, depending on how many aliens there are). The practitioners (starting with Schwinger and Feynman, and now being led by Tom Kinoshita here at Cornell) typically calculate ``g-2'' for the electron. They've calculated it as a series to eighth order in the electron charge e, or more properly to fourth order in the fine-structure constant
These calculations aren't easy. The first term is represented by a Feynman diagram with one closed loop, and requires no more than a page or two of hand calculation. The second term represents seven diagrams, and took seven years. Seventy two Feynman diagrams are needed for the third term, and all of them have been evaluated exactly using symbolic manipulation programs on computers, after nearly thirty years of hard work. The fourth term requires the evaluation of 891 four-loop Feynman diagrams, and has been estimated numerically using large-scale computations on supercomputers. The last term (not involving the fine-structure constant) is a small correction caused by particles other than the electron, and interactions of a non-electronic type.
Extremely clever experiments have measured this same number. For the electron, it is measured to be

and for the positron (the anti-electron) it's

(If the electron and positron did not have the same values for g-2, that would be an amazing surprise.)
Now, to compare experiment and theory, we need to know the value of the fine-structure constant . The measurements of the value of this constant aren't as accurate as those of g-2! One can measure using the quantum Hall effect, get 1/137.0360037(27) (an accuracy of 0.020ppm), and predict
(g-2)qH =1,159,652,156.4(22.9) x 10-12 One can measure using the ac Josephson effect to be 1/137.0359770(77) (0.056ppm), and predict (g-2)acJ =1,159,652,378.0(65.3) x 10-12 Or, one can measure Planck's constant h and the mass of the neutron, and derive to be 1/137.03601082(524) (0.039ppm) to predict (g-2)h/mn =1,159,652,092.2(44.4) x 10-12 The numbers in parentheses are due to the uncertainty in the experimental value of ; the errors in the computer-measurement of the theoretical formula is much smaller (plus or minus 1.2). If you trust the theory, you can work backwards to an even better estimate of : 1/137.03599993(52), with an estimated error of 0.0038ppm. This is undoubtedly the most accurate prediction ever made, and one of the most difficult. It's also one of the most accurate measurements ever made.
What's the point? Well, it turns out that this series does not converge! Freeman Dyson gave a wonderful argument that the radius of convergence of this function is zero. He noticed that the theory was sick (unstable) for negative , (complex electron charge), no matter how small alpha was. Since any circle about includes some of the sick region, the series could not converge! Just like Stirling's formula, the theory is mighty useful even though it won't keep improving as we calculate more and more terms.
This was the inspiration for our work showing that elastic theory has zero radius of convergence.

Quantum Electrodynamics (QED)

Quantum electrodynamics, commonly referred to as QED, is a quantum field theory of the electromagnetic force. Taking the example of the force between two electrons, the classical theory of electromagnetism would describe it as arising from the electric field produced by each electron at the position of the other. The force can be calculated from Coulomb's law.
The quantum field theory approach visualizes the force between the electrons as an exchange force arising from the exchange of virtual photons. It is represented by a series of Feynman diagrams, the most basic of which is
With time proceeding upward in the diagram, this diagram describes the electron interaction in which two electrons enter, exchange a photon, and then emerge. Using a mathematical approach known as the Feynman calculus, the strength of the force can be calculated in a series of steps which assign contributions to each of the types of Feynman diagrams associated with the force.
QED applies to all electromagnetic phenomena associated with charged fundamental particles such as electrons and positrons, and the associated phenomena such as pair production, electron-positron annihilation, Compton scattering, etc. It was used to precisely model some quantum phenomena which had no classical analogs, such as the Lamb shift and the anomalous magnetic moment of the electron. QED was the first successful quantum field theory, incorporating such ideas as particle creation and annihilation into a self-consistent framework. The development of the theory was the basis of the 1965 Nobel Prize in physics, awarded to Richard Feynman, Julian Schwinger and Sin-itero Tomonaga.

i always just stay around 150-180..being 23 i think my max rate is like 197 or whatever i havent done the calculation in a while.
