I know about the different kinds of cardio and what their for and all that. I dont need that…I’m just out of curiousty wondering what YOU guys do for cardio and how often and for how long.
a. what kind of cardio (hiit or low/moderate intensity)
b. how long per session (how many times a week and how many times you lift)
I want to know from guys who use it just to maintain leanness. I dont need to know if you trying to lose weight so your doing a million hours a week or if your “bulking” so you do none.
Please dont tell what you would LIKE to do or what you SHOULD be doing, just tell me what you actually do each week please.
Currently I am doing 2-3 steady state moderate morning workouts with either a jump-rope or maxed out on the tread climber. [a week, between 20-45 minutes]
Other then that I might get in 2-3 intensity cardio routines at night after I do some weights. I tend to focus more on jump-roping when I’m less worn out and ellipticals when my legs are toast. [20 minutes]
- once in a while I’ll hop onto the treadmill and do 5-10 minutes of steady pace running, then the next 5 minutes I’ll raise the speed up a point until I’m at a all out sprint for 1 full minute. Then a 5 min cooldown. [totalling 20-25 minutes]
I’ll be shifting to a steady incline run outside of my gym of 3-400 yards, then jump-roping at the top, then running back down and jump-roping at the bottom, then running back up. When I’m struggling I’ll just walk til I catch my breathe then repeat for 20-30 minutes.
