    How many gallons of tea would it take to completely cancel out a gallon of milk?

    Please show your reasoning.

    Note: No school would dare ask this so this is not for school work.


    What are you asking? You can't "cancel out" something in a mixture, it will just become less saturated.

    You have to understand one thing...
    This is like an RPG game, you can't be both a good sprinter and a long-distance runner.
    Look at all the people who run long distance / long times (Marathon runners, soccer players, etc).
    Now, look at the people who specialize at sprinting and quick bursts of speed (Football players, basketball players, etc).

    See the difference? Their muscles, their physical build. People who are built for sprinting and quick bursts have a lot more muscle mass, people who run long distance and for long periods of time have smaller muscles that use up less energy than bigger ones and are more suited for long term running.


    It's the difference between Type I and Type II muscle fibers.

    Not been tazed by a tazer, but "tazed" by a stun gun. (also a cattle prod hooked up to a wire fence) I have never been pepper sprayed but have made Habanero concentrate without eye protection and I image that is what it is close to feeling like.

    I wouldn't do HIIT or long cardio sessions if you don't have access to a gym.

    HIIT, High Intensity Interval Training will eat up your muscle.

    Long cardio sessions will also eat up your muscle.

    The only way to not lose muscle while doing this is either, eat at a calorie surplus or lift heavy.

    I say do cardio for 20-25mins a day if your goal is to have a better cardiovascular system.

    Also you say you want to gain strength. This is impossible unless you have access to a gym or weights.

    Look up All Pros[bodybuilding.com] or Starting Strength.[Mark Ripptoes]


    You don't actually lose muscle mass, you stop gaining mass however. The amount of cardio and HIIT you would need to do to start losing mass would be enough to kill most people. As long as you have a calorie rich diet with lots of protein and are not on a deficit you won't lose mass.

    You might have a slower metabolism than most. Some people that look big might try to lose weight, but it turns out if they do, they look like a walking skeleton.


    Faster you mean?

    Since we are on the topic about fitness, what would improve strength then? Meaning: would else improve strength other than lifting weights at a gym and push/pull ups? I can do pull ups at home (I could always grab the top frame of my bedroom door or install a steel bar to do it.) but there isn't a gym near where I live(like within 45 minutes from where I live) so lifting weights isn't an option.
    Also, what about the legs? Would jogging and short sprints improve my leg strength or do I have to do something else as well, like swimming?


    Look into a body weight strength program.

    You cannot work anaerobically for ten minutes. By the end you would pretty much be a giant ball of lactic acid.


    Err, why I messed up is this is what I do/used to do (not doing it really now because of school)... So yeah... I guess because I have bad knees my sprint isn't really that intense.

    Quote from Spires

    No one can sprint at max capacity for 10 minutes. Sure, running fast is possible, but sprinting at max capacity is normally something you only do in short bursts. I doubt the people running 100 meter races could keep that speed for much longer.


    Yes, I did a short search, I messed up slightly there, for that it should be 30 second intervals with a few minutes to cool down.

    Are you completly mad? 30 seconds at max is more likely, with as long rest in between.


    Not really, it's meant as a general outline, to be adjusted accordingly.

    (Though, I may be just used to talking to extremely fit people...)

    Quote from sikcool

    I`ve decided to try jogging once every week, no matter what the weather, for about 1 hour.
    I want to do this because i don`t get a lot of physical exercise because i`m not old enough to go to the gym and sports don`t interest me. However, i do like running and i run quite fast, but i can`t run for a very long time before getting tired, so i want to try and improve my cardio as well.
    Would jogging only once a week improve my fitness, or is it simply not enough?
    If not, i would be happy with it just making me not get less fit as time goes by. Kinda letting me keep being in shape, and not get more and more out of shape as time goes by due to lack of exercise.


    I am going get over my laziness and write a legitimate response:

    First, once a week for an hour is not going to work, you will see little improvement. It sounds like from your post you have mostly type II muscle fibers, so lets gear a regimen for that.

    You also seem to be confusing cardio for conditioning, they are two separate things though closely related. Cardio is meant to increase your cardiovascular activity in order to maintain a healthy heart. It is more health related fitness than sport/athletic related. Conditioning can mean several things from increasing your VO2 max to increasing a certain set of muscles endurance. In general it is associated with endurance training, so usually sport related.

    So if you do have type II muscle fibers it would be best to have much lighter cardio so you do not wear yourself out and you would want shorter bursts at high intensity for conditioning.

    So something like this:

    Day One:
    Sprint as fast as you can for ten minutes.
    Walk for ten minutes.
    Sprint as fast as you can for ten minutes.

    Day Two:
    Jog for thirty minutes.

    Day Three:
    Sprint as fast as you can for ten minutes.
    Walk for ten minutes.
    Sprint as fast as you can for ten minutes.

    Day Four:
    Jog for thirty minutes.

    Day Five:
    Sprint as fast as you can for ten minutes.
    Walk for ten minutes.
    Sprint as fast as you can for ten minutes.

    Edit:
    Allow day five and six as a resting period.

    Follow this general outline and ramp up slowly each week, if you keep to a schedule you are less likely to develop DOMS, or the muscle soreness that we all love. >.>

    Also what specifically do you mean by improving your fitness? There's several different types of fitness and they need different regimens.

    This should help you greatly.
    Running is very good exercise for your body, cardiac and respiratory output as well as endurance will be greatly increased.



    This looks like couch to 5k in chart form.
