Ep 65: Barefoot vs Shoe Running, which Burns MORE Calories?

In this episode of the Dr Clay Show I’ll tell ya about a new study which compares the caloric expenditure of running barefoot vs running in shoes.

I don’t want to spoil the ending, so I’ll just say one method does appear to burn more kcal than the other – and I’ll give you my theories as to why that is (one of which is rather out there I must admit).

Dr Clay Show LIVE! (and unscripted/unrehearsed)

On a whim, I decided to do a live episode of the Dr Clay Show.

But let me forewarn you, it’s unscripted, unrehearsed…probably more of a blog video I suppose.

Regardless, I do manage to talk some UFC, Biggest Loser, and go over a couple new studies.  And I answer a couple questions, too.

If you guys dig this format, I’ll do more of these in the future – and I’ll try to announce it ahead of time, too ;)

Ep62: Uphill Walking…what type of Cardio is it?

 

Episode 62: What type of Cardio is Walking Uphill?

Walking at a moderate speed on level ground is Steady State Cardio (SSC).  More specifically, it’s Low Intensity, Steady State Cardio.

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is obviously high intensity in nature, so high that it must be done in an on/off fashion (hence the term interval).

But what about cardio that’s really hard – certainly NOT low intensity – but that you can maintain for a while (thus not interval in nature)… like Walking up a STEEP Hill; what type of cardio is that?!

In this episode of the Dr Clay Show, I’m going to take you on an uphill walk with me as I explain what type of cardio uphill walking is.

 

Notes

  • Low-Intensity Cardio is Aerobic in nature (meaning it uses oxygen)
  • High-Intensity Cardio is Anaerobic (does not use oxygen)
