    Interpreteation: work = force x distance x cosine (the angle between the vector of force and the vector of displacement).

    The study you mention used oxygen consumption as the sole indicator of energy expenditure.

    Neither time spent on the exercise (given the exercise to be walking and running) nor oxygen consumption are relevant for calculating the amount of work done.

    In practical terms, running is favoured over walking because:

    A: it takes less time.
    B: it "feels" more intense.
    C: compared to a workout with a medley of weight exercises (with short or no rest breaks) which burns more calories than running, the act of running is easy. People like easy.
    wood. Oni is on the money. Mechanics are different. As you go faster you have higher usage of the anaerobic system which is less efficient. Even wind resistance increases exponentially.

    Plus i just posted research comparing the two.


    What you are calculating is basic physics on a mass. Calorie consumption with exercise needs to take into account the biology of the human body and real life effects on a human body.

    Yes, I agree that there are other factors, such as wind resistance, but those are minor factors that are inconsistent. e.g with outdoor running, records are influenced by head or back wind.

    Also in the real world, take your average fat phuck sitting on the couch. They are more likely to expend energy if they get up to go for a walk as opposed to going for a run.

    In addition there are other real world factors such as damage to ligaments, bone and joints from the increased pressure of running, particularly on a hard surface. The fact that most people look like they are about to die when running, as opposed to walking, the fact that many become obsessive with running, ending up wearing those super high cut floppy shorts which is not a good look and losing most of their lean mass.

    So, yes. There are other "real life" factors.

    On the plus size is when a hot chick wears lycra and runs in front of you with dat dere pony tail swaying in time with her..... well. You know.

    The other factors like running mechanics and which energy system the body is using are not minor factors. They add up to pretty significant increases in energy usage. So itís certainly not equal energy usage like you were previously claiming and itís also not close enough that its basically equal.


    The rest of what you mentioned regarding what exercise fat fucks will actually do, how people look when they run, wear and tear on the body, what clothes runners wear ect are a different topic of discussion.


    Bottom line here is running does burn significantly more calories than walking. It isnít equal in that regard. Iím not saying running is better than walking. They are different and either, both or something else could be the better exercise depending on the circumstances.
