Short answer: a more vigorous workout will burn more absolute fat calories.

Long answer: the 50% of max heart rate zone you're referring to will burn a higher percentage of calories from fat, but you burn so many more total calories with a higher heart rate that you'll end up burning more absolute calories from fat.

My conclusion: do the tougher workout! Wink
