    I've always tried to stay as fit as possible, not always easy when heavier but I still maintain some low intensity cv
    I'm at the stage now where I'm done being heavy, I wanna be a hybrid type athlete,so on top of my weight training im doing HIIT on a watt bike, do at least one 5km run a week and do some metabolic barbell workouts

    completely disagree re walking and cycling.
    health and low impact muscle sparing walking
    cycling unless hill climbing for all your ride ( your not lol ) would have to cycle much longer to get same calorie expenditure over walking
    but each to their own.

    according to my strava ive walked 140 mile since beginning of march, which is an average of 7.5 miles a day. Thats just my planned walk, not regular daily 'steps' that everyone is obsessed with.
    Never felt better tbh.

    nothing wrong with walking but i find i get better fat burning & heart training with cycling. walking is ok but as i wrote i need a bit more intensive training to sweat. Depends of course on other factors such as bodyweight..etc. with walking. plus i just find walking boring as fuck.
