comment How much more cardio for fat loss?
@EricGunnerson 170 is not too high...to find your maximum heart rate - just subtract 220 with your age. I achieve 170bpm with ease and i'm sure many others can too. But obviously if exercise is alien to you then you should only attempt to push you heart rate up to 50% of your maximum to begin with.

comment Working out same muscle group two days in a row (or before full recovery)
@meanderingmoose The result of attempting to do a Full Weight workout on Day 2 was not much to be honest...apart from the fact that there is a high risk of injuring and damaging the muscles. It is almost impossible to do the same workout as Day 1 IF Day 1 was indeed a full workout to your MAX. If you are able to do a full workout consecutively then this would only mean that you did not workout hard enough in Day 1. Therefore, a half weight is on Day 2 feels like a Day 1 workout because the muscles are not fully recovered.

comment Working out same muscle group two days in a row (or before full recovery)
@AndrewGauthier My source is based on my own personal experience and other personal trainers that I work with and the results we gain are extraordinary to what a normal workout gains. Therefore, I can only recommend on this basis and cannot guarantee its effectiveness will work for everyone... however it worked extremely well for the people I have trained. I hope that helps.

I think you guys are right. 170bpm is tough to maintain if high intensity exercise is not a norm. I train twice a day morning and evening, 5 times a week so I guess I am used to that amount of exercise. But my main point if we disregard the high BPM is that the heart rate must be elevated to a certain point where it is working hard and pumping blood round the body at a relatively higher intensity rate than normal.
