    Well, actually you need to throw the glute max in on that since it is the single largest muscle on its own....and will be very well used in the lower body sprint training. Interesting thing is its hardly used in the walking gait, but really comes into its own when we run.

    What about stairs. If I am regaining fitness to do efficient sprints, will stair walking have the same effect?

    Stairs are great! And you can mix it up by doing single or double steps. Just be careful on the way back down!

    I have stairs in my house. And I try really hard NOT to use them haha. I guess I should make a point every day. That is something I could incorporate and not even notice the time and effort spent. Maybe I should start using the upstairs or downstairs bathroom?

    While all exercise will oxidize glucose to some extent, high intensity is defined by the production of lactate when you overwhelm the oxidative capacity of the muscles and instead of generating further energy from pyruvate ( the end product of glycolysis ) the excess pyruvate is converted to lactate which is shunted to the liver for gluconeogenesis.

    So, if you don't feel the burn ... well, you're not really at high intensity.

    Thanks for the English I was just thinking more along the lines of just a little extra something to do throughout the day. Like parking at the end of the parking lot sort of thing.

    The lactate is responsible for the burn isn't it? Or is that an urban myth?
