    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?

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

    with the type of cardio your doing yes it's bad for retaining muscle. Walking for two hours would be fine.
