    Was ok as far as cardio goes. It's not something i'd dread doing so that's a big bonus.

    Just wondering how difficult i'm supposed to find it because quite a few on here were saying it's very difficult and i don't have super stamina or anything but i found it easy...... so was just wondering if i've mis-understood something?

    Not been a big headed smart-ass or anything. Just want to make sure i'm doing it right. I want the results
    Its only easy if you hold onto something.

    I have had great success doing a variety of different types of cardio. My rule of thumb is fasted cardio should be low intensity, otherwise I use interval training which really kicks in with the fat burn. What I have really had success with just lately is muscle preservation/gain while burning fat. Yes the supps I have been using have played there part. I just can't believe that at close to 50 I am still able to add mass so easily. I really caught my off guard, I expected to lose weight but I didn't I just burned fat.

    Question regarding the machines at the gym


    my elliptical and the treadmill have different settings (ie manual, cardio, heart, fat loss, mountain, flat, etc) that will change the resistance and such in intervals... but these are almost impossible to customize (you can customize the resistance of each interval..but not the length of the interval)

    do you guys just manually adjust the speed every minute.. or is there a way to customize the intervals that i am overlooking?
    Im tired of being stuck to the machines preset intervals, and i hate having to adjust the machine every minute

    I adjust it as I go along manually. It does a very good job, and I find it more motivating, as I sometimes crank it up a little higher, and time goes by faster by doing this.

    What's the highest incline the treadmills at your gym go to?

    I'm wondering if the incline settings at your gym are different to mine?

    Ok Sounds Interesting


    ok i AM SOLD. i TYPICALLY INTERSPERSE CARDIO DURING MYE WEIGHTS, LIKE BETWEEN SUPERSETS. is this horribly wrong? It gives my muscles a chance to rest without just sitting around (usually just like 5 minutes of HIIT before doing the next series of supersets, and not after supersets focused on legs) i have to say I am going ot try it YOUR way, cause my way has not been realy producing fat burning results.

    Haha. Yeah, NP will sell Jj's magic caps of cardio!

    Darn, get a new one then

    Thanks! Right now, I lift 5x a week, and cardio after my weights sessions, except leg day.

    The other days, I rest, I might go for rollerblade and biking, but it's nothing really intense, just for fun..

    Your method is a real headache, as IMO you can't really focus on anything since you're running around all the time. Try it, and let me know!

    I love me some HIIT, and better yet, dynamic exercise. If your goal is to burn fat, cardio-exclusive sessions, utilizing varying speeds and movements, will shed the most adipose over time. Whether it be inclined, declined, backwards, or what have you, the important aspect is intensity and variance. Studies comparing low vs high intensity cardiovascular training show the high intensity group losing more adipose over a longer time period (due to the aggregate effect on metabolic pathways [see: oxidation of FFAs, nitrogen balance, glucose disposal and son on]). Low-intensity cardio is amazing if your only concern is losing fat from 24-72h post-exercise (as FFAs are oxidized readily in that respect); however, if your goal is long-term weight management, there is no replacement for dynamic movement and high-intensity training.

    Question regarding the machines at the gym

    my elliptical and the treadmill have different settings (ie manual, cardio, heart, fat loss, mountain, flat, etc) that will change the resistance and such in intervals... but these are almost impossible to customize (you can customize the resistance of each interval..but not the length of the interval)

    do you guys just manually adjust the speed every minute.. or is there a way to customize the intervals that i am overlooking?
    Im tired of being stuck to the machines preset intervals, and i hate having to adjust the machine every minute
    My Elliptical trainer I have at home has the ability to record the work out I do manuualy then I can do it over and over again, and keep adjusting as I get used to it. So if I record a workout and keep doing it, then I need to push harder i just ramp it up, and at the end of the work out the computer asks me if I want to save that version ,and that is what I have the next time I go to do it. So I have about 3 or 4 different versions I can use depending on what my goals are for the day.
    Not sure if any of the ones at the gym have that function or not (doubt it).

    Can you still do a PWO shake after this? or should you consume some of it before the cardio

    Magnesium citrate, or as I like to say, Magnesium shytstraight, lol. Guarantee you'll lose a few pounds on your first dose, and continue too for a few more hours. Also, it will help you with your sprint times, as you will spend countless hours sprinting to the bathroom. It's cheap too!! Good luck!! Great thread guys, lmao!!
