    Best cardio regimen ...?

    Hey guys ... I'm changing over from doing 15 minutes of HIIT after weight training session to 2 days of nothing but cardio ... what duration would you recommend ... 30 or 60 minutes (other) ... and also do you recommend switching up treadmill with elliptical and stair stepper ... or is one superior ...?

    What's your goal with the cardio? Is it just a calorie burn?

    I do 30 mins 3-4x a week on the stair stepper , primarily for glute activation, cardiovascular health and the calorie burn.

    If it's just to burn extra calories, I'd go with whatever doesn't drive you insane doing.

    If it's to build your cardiovascular fitness, I'd switch up every few weeks, once whatever you're doing becomes easier. Build up your capacity in one, then switch to another. Bike to rower to stairs to jogging, etc..

    Just do what you enjoy. Consistency is always an important factor.

    That's why my only cardio is when I walk my dogs or bang my ole lady.

    Whichever one you are going to stick with. Switching them up may help you to keep from getting bored. My wife will do 30 min of one then 30 min of the other. Personally I prefer POBs cardio routine.

    My cardio which I do 3-4 times a week consists of a number of different ways of doing so and the treadmill and stair master are never part of it. I just don't have the patience for that stuff. Walking standing still? lol I just can't grasp the concept. I use cardio for the health benefits to my heart, health and overall improvement to my physical and mental being as well. Yep, I've grown to actually love my cardio. My cardio depending on my current feeling that day can either be.... 20 to 30 minutes of sled pushes, or 20 minutes of kettle bell swings, or, 20 -30 minutes of tire flips. when I'm feeling a bit beat down I will just walk the track at the high school for an hour. I'm also trying to get better at jump rope. By the time I'm done with any of the above my heart is pounding, I'm dripping in sweat and my body is pumped AF. Try one or two of these and you'll see. And in doing so I'm obviously burning a good amount of calories. all planned, of course.

    While I not at work I walk everywhere, don’t even own a car and the wife works all day with hers. Doesn’t even feel like I doing cardio, plus the Mrs wants it once in the morning and before bed and occasionally she wakes me at 2 am for it too.
