Brisk walking on a plane incline is an ideal way to reach this area, and the main drawback is time. It takes as much time to record a certain number of calories when training in this area. The area of burning fat is what I consider the land of myth. This is the most misunderstood in training. When you are at 60-70 percent of your target heart rate, most of their calories from fat burned during this training session. Over 65% of calories burned can come from fat.

Due to this trivial fact, many people believe that this is the area needed to burn fat. This is not necessarily true. Any time you create a calorie deficit or spend more calories than you consume, you lose weight as fat and / or muscle mass. While other systems may burn less percentage of fat, you can burn more calories and therefore result in greater fat loss! As an example, let's talk about the "aerobic zone." In this zone, intensity increases, so less calories are burned from fat. However, due to the higher intensity, you burn more calories per minute.

Does this mean that you should avoid the aerobic zone if fat loss is your goal? Let's break this. It is estimated that 45% of the calories in the area of "aerobic" fat burning. Let's say you run 6 mph to reach the "fat burning zone" and is running 9 mph to reach the "aerobic zone." Within an hour, you can run any of 6 miles or 9 miles.
