    So when I work out I generally do 20 minutes on a bike, 20 ninutes on a strider and 10 on a stepper. As well as lift weights.

    I generally try to get my heart-rate at about 180 - 200. More intensiity = more fat burned right?

    Apparently low intesnity is best between 160-170.

    Which is best/
