PoB sent me a PM last night to let me know that his Rumba classes are going really well, and it got me to thinking about all the various forms and types of cardio out there. What do you guys prefer when cutting? Personally, I do LISS on the Elliptical. Low impact, slow burn!

What is c-a-r-d-i-o? (Sentence should be pronounced slowly as if I'm Mike Tyson trying to learn a new word and enunciate it properly.)

I switch it up to keep it interesting. Lately getting some pretty good results cycling though, like the ones that are more like real bikes. My girl wants to do zumba though....

I usually use the treadmill on an incline level to the max at low speed, usually 3.5-4. Or when i feel brave enough i use the stairmaster.

15 minutes of incline (5-8*) treadmill at 3 mph before workout. My heart rate is 120-130 bpm, no more; no less. 25 minutes of the same after workout. On my off days 45 minutes same way. I like to stay lean I'm currently 236 and 9% BF

What you all do cardio!? Damn I thought you were taking a magic pill.....joking! I mix in up quite a bit. Pushing and pulling sleds really works for me. Running Hills. Sprints. Even tire flipping. All theses really work my cardio. I hate with a passion running on treadmill and Bikes at the gym. But I do what's necessary.

Cardio? Does walking in and out of the gym count? I play softball 3-4 days a week, thats my cardio.

Sled pulls.... Twice per week. I'd love to joke with SAD and SFG about wtf is cardio... But as my weight keeps going up, its getting harder to keep healthy. You'll never find my chubby ass on a treadmill and I'm not trying to get lean, but I do want to exercise my most important muscle. Its also because my fiance pointed out that after we get it on its not attractive that I lay limp and lifeless on top of her panting like a dog lol....

I've done a Zumba class too btw... Banged one of the women in the class :D Of course it was my girlfriend, but still it got me laid lol
