Body fat test
weight 64.2kg, 10.07stone, 141lb
height 167 cm, 5.4ft 5 inch
waist 74 cm
FAT 26% = 16.7kg Normal 20-26% = 12-16kg
LEAN 47.5 kg Normal 46-50kg
Total WATER 64.2 kg Normal = 64kg
Dry lean 14.4kg
Water 51.6% = 33.1lt Normal 50-60% = 32-39lt
BMR ( Basal Metabolic Rate) = 1576 Kcal
- To train my body to be better at burning body fat, its best to exercise at the point where it is the most efficient at burning body fat!
Call this point " FAT BUMP"
- My Fat Bump is between 128-138bpm and I burn 432 Kcal/hour. This means I am 96% efficient at fat burning.
- Research and SZ experience have shown that to get the maximum benefit from this type of fat burning (endurance) training, I need to do AT LEAST 5 hour's training/week. Because the intensity is relatively modest, I do not need a recovery day. As such, I should consider my endurance training as a daily task.
- My Lactate Threshold heart rate is 173 bpm.
- Threshold defines where my recovery heart rate should fall to when doing interval training.
- My individual recovery heart rate zone for interval training is 163 to 168 bpm.
- Threshold is also my race pace for events lasting 3 hours or more.
- It represents a compromise between speed (using carbohydrates) and endurance (predominantly fat) and ensures that you can complete the race without "hitting the wall". For runners, my threshold heart rate is my marathon race pace.
HIGH INTENSITY TRAINING HIT:
- Call this zone 'RQ1' and at this heart rate and above, I am burning 100% carbohydrates and zero fat.
- My body cannot get the energy quickly enough from utilizing body fat as a fuel and must rely exclusively on carbohydrates.
- This heart rate zone is necessary to generate performance improvements, speed and power.
- My body will absorb and retain these performance improvements when high intensity training is built upon a solid foundation of endurance training.
- Working at these high intensities should be taken in moderation and scheduled into my training programme in the correct frequency and amount.!
- My RQ1 heart rate is 178 bpm and you burn a total of 654 calories/hour.
" HIT " should only be done if you have a solid base level of fitness and are not for beginners!
This is just my Fat Burning HART RATE TEST!!
- Unless I monitor what I eat.
- low carbs diets are fashionable at the moment, as they promote rapid weight loss, but most of this weight loss comes from water and losing lean tissue ( muscle )
- for every 4 lbs you lose: 3 lbs will come from water
and only 1lb comes from real weight loss
- the more exercise I do, the more carbs I may need to eat fuel my activity
- I cut out the excess fat
- Fat is rich in calories and contains more than twice as many calories than either carbs or protein BUT we all need some fat in diet and these are called ESSENTIAL FATS
- Eating raises my metabolic rate through thermogenesis.
METABOLISM IS FIRED UP EVERY TIME YOU EAT
- Its better to eat 5-6 small meals a day rather than 1 or 2 large ones.
THIS WILL KEEP MY METABOLIC RATE AS HIGH AS POSSIBLE!
- STARVING shuts down your metabolism and you don't want to do!!
REMEMBER, eating more frequently does not mean eating more! Don't exceed your total daily calorific target!
