    So I was thinking about how the body uses sugar during excersize. Please correct me if I am wrong. If someone sprints they very quickly use up their sugar stores and then must switch to aerobic respiration. Once that cannot support the energy demands they switch to anarobic. So what if you sprint untill it hurts (lactic acid), and then walk a little, and then sprint till it hurts, then walk etc. This way your sugar stores have to keep being used up whenever they are refilled. Would you use more sugar doing this as opposed to just plain jogging?


    Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you'll see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself. -Spoon Boy

    Whatever you do, sprint will just produce lactic acid, opposed to the aerobic one.
    The main difference between a long lasting effort and a short one, is that on a long lasting effort, like jogging, your body will finish to consume fat. A non trained body will eat fat, after 45-60 minutes of exercice, while a trained one will use fat after just 30-36 minutes.

    That's why it's better for losing weight to do one footing of 90 minutes per week, than 5 of 20 minutes

    Wow... So let me get this strait. Does the body use the fat instead of aerobic respiration or does it use both and just use more fat when untrained?

    So a good brisk round of Golf say 3 to 3.5hrs covering approx 6k+
    Would be good for health but not enough for weight loss?
