    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?

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