And the best reason to optimize fat burning is? To lose weight? To increase endurance by controlling cellular chemistry?

And the best exercise intensity to optimize (quantized) fat burning is? Dogtrot all day? Run six miles? Sprint to refrigerator?


No idea. I was just pointing out that fat can be used directly as an energy store and that adaptation to it is (usually) desirable (for a variety of reasons).

HI Smee

there are a couple of us doing that interactive weight loss program on that site posted above (indoor sport services)
it seems to be ok and very much based on your weight/age/height and previous experience. so the other guy (Johnny) and my program are vastly different. not that thats a bad thing. and im enjoying it and doing some good length rows. for example this week is 2 x 20 min rows, 1 x 40 min then 2 x 25 and repeat the 3 for the 6 day week. next week i have a 45 min a 50 min and a 60 min then repeat. im using a 3 or 4 min rest (shorter the row the shorter the rest)
as to results... Johnny is getting good results to date ( i think its around 19lb or so) I am also losing weight (7kg to date) and want/need to lose more so will continue on this program for the full 23 weeks when i will switch back to the BPP

What are my best options/sessions to do for weight loss in the allocated time?

After a bit of experimentation, Ive managed to answer my own question> Interestingly, nobody sussed the answer, however Im prepared to concede that that they may be because I didn't give enough information at the outset. Im a former rower returning to exercise but am exceptionally unfit, inflexible and overweight. At this stage my best option for 60 minutes is something that I can do for sixty minutes. Let me explain - I tried for example tabata with 20seconds on and 10 seconds off. I did the 20 seconds so hard (as you should do as I did this a number of of years ago) that I simply could not last longer than 2 minutes ie 4 x 20 seconds of 'work'. I could have done roe later but not at the time, whereas I can row continuously at 20 strokes a minute for 60 minutes currently. So faced with 60 mins continuous or 2 mins of 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off, I'll stick with 60 minutes until I get lighter, more flexible and fitter and able to tackle more. As an observation, and not at all meant a s a criticism, I've noted that other responses, on other posts, as to what folk 'should' do , or should be able to do, does not alway take into consideration the individuals current capability. If you never been unfit, it is hard to comprehend. I've bene international athlete fit and now Im less fit than the average guy in the street. It is easy to forget.

Thanks to everyone for their help and advice thus far - whilst I cant do those sessions ow, i will be able to attempt them in the future.

You have a big advantage to know what it is to be fit. But you are right, you certainly can,t row for a hour daily if you are very untrained. Think you should forget faster stuff in the beginning, first just get going. You will improve rapidly.
