Oh god tone is the worst word to use in exercise. A hive of vague handwaving.

comment Training the twitch fibre muscles for faster punching and kicking
3 days isn't long enough for your body to get much faster. It's more likely that what happened was you got used to the feeling of punching slower, and so without the dumbbells it feels like you're punching faster. See the "Skill Specific Neurological Specificity" heading on page 28 of this google book.

comment Training the twitch fibre muscles for faster punching and kicking
Punching with dumbbells is not generally a good idea. The resistance is in the wrong direction (down, not horizontal), it can be stressful to the joints, and the motor pattern is close enough to an actual punch to mess up your technique and in some cases even train you to be slower.

You do one exercise and then another exercise and then another without any rest between them, at a fast pace.

comment Purpose of this machine?
Running is the best cardio exercise for running. However, if your goal is general purpose cardio, then running is not necessarily the best. There are other exercises that use just as many muscles, like rowing, or circuit training, or barbell complexes.

comment How to lose fat while lifting weights and not doing any cardio?
In order to maximize performance and progress in each domain, the order of the workout should go skill, power, strength, conditioning. This takes advantage of the fact that conditioning requires less motor recruitment and allows for more slop than strength work.

OK, you'll have to be more specific about what specifically you're talking about then. Which charts? What formulas?
