What were you doing for cardio, bike, eliptical, treadmill?
hiit 3 days a week.
i usually tack 20min on to the end of my lifting days and I have one pure cardio day
usually on the elliptical or horiz bike
30 minutes after every gym workout is normal for me. Now that the warm weather is coming, I'll be Mtn biking 2-3 times a week.
I still can't keep up with the mtn bike crew
4 or 5 days a week
5 days a week in the AM usually. Though, this semester has been a different story. I still aim for 3x a week now.
cutting down on cardio for my bulk.
7 days a week
I usually do 15 minutes after workouts. I stay on 3.2 mph and go from a 1 incline all the way to 15.
If I don't do cardio in the gym my gf and I go walking on the golf course in my back yard. It's a mile and a half with a decent amount of hills and slopes.
Riding the stationary bike 5-7 times a week right now. When spring gets here I'll be back to biking on the dirt river bottom trails 5+ days a week instead.
i do 10 minutes before every lifting workout (5 days) then i normally get to the gym twice a week whenever i feel like it and do 35-40minutes of pure cardio
damn that sounds like fun, all we have around here are some shitty trails around a local lake.
About 4-5 times here.
What do you do for cardio?
I do cardio every night
WITH YOUR MOTHER
7 days a week for me.
wait does sex count as cardio?
Change it up between treadmill and precor elliptical. Sometimes throw in jump rope. 3 days per week is just for conditioning and cardio.
Though I usually also include low intensity cardio at the end of most weight days.
6 days a week.
Treadmill w/ elliptical
Treadmill w/ stairmaster
Cardio Boxing / Jump Rope
Treadmill w/ Row
Plyometrics (not cardio, but raises heart rate)
3 days a week, switch it up between running steady 2 miles on treadmill and 15 mins of HIIT on eliptical
depends on what i'm feeling that day/week
I don't do cardio.
It's lots of fun. National Wildlife Reserve is about a mile from my place so I bike over there and hit the dirt trails. Make the trip down the trail and back to my place and it's just a touch over 10 miles. You can continue on the trail and it goes down to singletrack and goes like 60 some miles south if you really want. Even has a river that you cross on a raft that you pull across with a rope. The local mountain bike enthusiasts put a lot of work into it. Really sucks that the city is now saying they wanna spend $200k to make a paved trail. Really stupid because it's in at the Minnesota River bed and floods almost every year (will wash out the paved road and leaves a foot or two of sand everywhere). Can't wait for a little more snow to melt and go hit the trails. I bike up the stairs at the end which is the equivalent of a 17 story building climb in just a matter of a couple hundred feet. Really gets your heart going.
i go to the gym 4 times a week, and jog to and from the gym ~1.7 miles each way.
