Most people know that the easiest way to burn fat is to do cardio. Long duration medium level activity.
Most people however, don’t know that in order to start burning fat you have to be doing cardio for over 20 minutes which is why people who do cardio for half an hour only really spend 10 minutes burning fat. The other 20 are spent burning primarily glycogen.
This is because your body is lazy and wants to use the least amount of energy to fuel itself but under continuous strain it realizes it needs to pull from a more abundant energy source, so it starts breaking and burning fat (which yields the most amount of energy per gram out of any nutrient)
Moral of then story is to make faster gains in fat burning just up your cardio duration by 10 to 15 minutes.
Glycogen: a polysaccharide composed of glucose; a storage form of glucose that is manufactured and stored in the liver as well as your muscles.
Polysaccharide: several bonded together carbohydrates that your body breaks down systematically for energy.

Scott is my hero.
So I know I don’t have many followers and for those few who do follow me I know my blog is a little erratic but one thing that I am extremely passionate about is fitness.
I will start posting some hard facts from scientific journals and studies I find interesting, hoping to shed some light on how people can go about being healthier. If anyone ever has any questions, shoot me a message and I’ll try to answer it to the best of my ability and if I can’t then I’ll gladly do the research to help further my own understanding.
A little about me is that I am a 20yr old male studying Kinesiology and nutrition. I play rugby for my university and workout avidly.
