2 hour cardio

  1. 2 hour cardio


    I generally do 1hour of cardio 5-6 times a week. which is 20min running 6.5 on treadmill. 20min lvl 6 eliptical and 20min lvl 6 rotating stairs. i feel like i can go for much longer. is it a bad thing to do 2 hours of straight cardio without a break or food intake?

  2. Never enough

    I think more where you are heartrate wise in that time is the question (and where that sits in your heart rate range)
