comment Burning calories: Using elliptical type equipment
Well in either case @Dustin, they won't adjust the resistance based on your range of motion, so it will become harder and harder to get it rotate over the extremes. Off course the arms can help in this regard, but it's not 'normal' running

comment Do the principles behind the shakeweight and related products work? (a lot of quick, short impulse muscle contractions)
Just like power plates, the Free University of Amsterdam got in a lawsuit for busting their claims

While it's true that: "no pain, no gain" there's an optimum for when your body is super-imposed compared to before the workout and that's when you want to be working out that same muscles again. When that is varies between people, so the 48 hours might work for you but it might be something else for someone else

comment Best exercise to lose belly fat fast
'Muscle burns more calories'? You mean in rest? Because that won't be enough to loose 40 pounds, I would recommend do focus on more cardio first, you can work on the muscles once the weight is gone.

What kind of exercise do you do in the gym? Lifting weights isn't the most efficient way to burn calories.

You can try lifting your kids in sets of 50, if you do all 4 of them that's a nice workout!

comment Will I effectively lose weight only by running? Is it better than doing full body workout?
@Matthew, I just view it as good sportsmanship ;-) Though it might be better to have these discussions on chat in the future!

Ah @Matthew, it was meant to emphasize the thing that using your own (heavy) weight is a great tool and that moving it 'faster' costs more energy. But off course, this is a great simplification

@Matthew, you're body isn't a car that stays at that speed magically. You have to propel your legs every step, those legs have a weight and their speed is most certainly not constant. Furthermore, your forward speed may be 'constant' but bouncing up and down like you do in running requires forces that need to be generated. The more you weight, the higher the forces and the harder you'll have to work.
