OBESITY: What causes obesity? And what can be done about it?
Why do so many people become obese? Some believe that obesity is genetically predetermined. Others insist it is a direct result of lifestyle choices (i.e. obese people are simply sloths and gluttons). As it turns out, both of these common assumptions are over-simplifications; and rather useless in terms of doing anything for people who are overweight. Knowledge is power, they say and in order to change something, one must first understand it.

What is Zone 2 in endurance training and how can you determine yours?
So the theory goes: train for 80% of your time in zone 2, and you become more efficient at utilising fat for energy (fatOX or fat oxidation), at higher intensities. Plus you will also be able to clear lactate faster, raise your power output and even live longer. The reason for this, is that zone 2 training improves your mitochondrial function and stimulates mitochondrial biogenesis.
