    I don't get it - what's the 55% fat element? Is it even possible to burn that many calories in an hour? Cos when I do 861 there is no-one in the gym hammering it as hard as I am, there's sweat everywhere, and it's not like I'm in terrible shape. by Dinosaur on 6/20/2011 4:57:17 PM

    Hi jasfit38, good stuff, but how did you measure the calories? This challenge is really for measuring calories used up on a gym machine, or using something like a Garmin to calculate the calories - how did you measure yours? by Dinosaur on 6/17/2011 10:52:22 AM

    Nice job. Hope for a 9 mile run in an hour soon to try and reclaim the top spot. by AndyWeaver on 5/16/2011 3:19:50 AM

    What machine was this on? See, too much weight training, not enough cardio - you need to lay off the weights and get that heart working! by Dinosaur on 4/14/2011 11:36:32 PM

  • profile pic Hi Sbaguru - unfortunately my achilles is shot. was training for a marathon in May but haven't been able to run at all for last 3 weeks - hence the bike work by Dinosaur on 4/11/2011 5:14:00 PM

  • profile pic Hey Dino, nice avitar BTW. Can't beat running at a fast pace for calories, impact plus heartrate and muscles used. Hit the treadmill and use an incline and you should crack 1000. by AndyWeaver on 4/6/2011 9:12:00 PM

  • profile pic woah, that's some calorie count. i'd best get on the rower, but not sure i can crack 1000 calories even on that by Dinosaur on 4/6/2011 7:15:00 PM
