How To Burn Fat Cardio Or Weights
Strength training: I presume when you say “lose calories”you mean lose weight. Aerobic training is an efficient way to lose weight and burn fat. However, strength training results in larger muscles which burn fat and expend calories at a higher level than undeveloped muscle. Typically, a combined program of strength training and aerobic conditioning results in the weight loss you seek. ...Read more
Repetitive use: Repetition is how we replace fat with muscle. Take running. The act of lifting your leg (which is heavy), rotating your pelvis to swing your leg to place it in front of you, and repeating with the opposite leg is a lot of work. Do this 5000 times. Eventually, fat, which doesn't help with action, is replaced by muscle. Exercise also requires calories - the body breaks down fat for fuel. ...Read more
Eating Method HF/LC: As omnivores, our bodies typically extremely good adapting.

HR Zones: Keep your heart rate maintained between 60-80% of your maximum for 30-60 minutes. A quick formula is 220-age= your "maximum". Then find your range between 60-80% of that.

No simple answer.: There is no easy answer to this question. The amount you burn will depend on your weight, your percent of body fat, the weight you lift, how many reps you do how much rest between sets and other factors. It is not a question of how much weight you lift but has more to do with how many reps and how quickly you do them, that is why interval training burns more calories. ...Read more
Weight loss: If you have adipose tissue that you'd like to lose then consider an increase in cardio and a balanced diet. However, do not always do the same exercise or you will increase your risks for stress injuries. Mix things up with running, biking, swimming, or circuit training.

Conversational pace: To maximize calorie burn you want to move/run/walk at a pace that gets your heart rate and breathing up, but that you still can maintain conversation easily.
