100 percent agree with everything you said except #3. I’ll argue with anyone all day that doing 10 sets of sprints with long intervals of rest is better than doing cardio for the same amount of time.
I do pretty much zero cardio, aside from BJJ one day a week, and I gotta eat like a horse just to stay at 9 percent. [/quote]
Cardio has different meanings, I would consider doing 10 sets of sprints a form of cardio myself. Normally I would recommend 15 to 20 minutes of HIIT three times per week. Not necessarily long duration 3mph walking.
Most of us have to try to get DOWN to 9%, so you have to take that into consideration too.
