comment Best exercise to lose belly fat fast
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.

Feel free to include it in your answer @Jeff ;-) I don't have anything to add beyond your original answer anyway!

Also don't split up the cardio to anything shorter than half an hour, your body needs time to get the real fat burning going. So if your keen on doing two workouts, make sure not to skimp on the cardio!

Not everybody wants to look like a body builder ;-) Besides you can loose weight and still not be slender or athletic. I think it's better to loose some weight first and get into better shape, before doing additional workouts. But in the end it's all down to preferences

comment Exercises for a programmer sitting by the PC all day
I can totally agree with the effects our pose has on our posture and muscles, so a little stretching to maintain a healthy ROM is a good advice!

comment Do you need to “feel the burn” to become stronger?
It might be advisable to explain what you mean by "breaking down muscle tissue", because I understand you don't actually mean breaking stuff, but others might conceive that a tad more literally.

comment Cold Bath After Training - Recovery Techniques
While true @Andrew, just because it works for him doesn't mean it works for everyone :-) But if it has a positive influence on his self-esteem or just makes him feel great, that might be more important than the actual physiological effects
