    When doing exercise for fat loss, it can be refined to the exact heart rate needed according to your age and resting heart rate.

    People use the Karvonen calculator to get the ideal rate, then use treadmill, or eliptical stepper etc to keep the rate near constant for 30 to 45 min say 3 times a wee.

    See the calculator here

    The other area to be quite tight about is food intake. Eating enough to be slightly under a maintanence level. It may take you some time to get it right as it is difficult to adjust food intake and get it right. DA

    P.S you will need a heart rate monitor to make the Karvonen results work well.

    Old bastard or not – being in shape is a good thing. I probably only meant for you to get in the single digits with fat skinfold measures, so even if your 18-20% BF then 10% or less is only say 3 months away.

    And hell, you can compete with yourself in the mirror! DA
