    nothing wrong with cardio at all. Ive done it just lifting for fifteen years. Now even if its twice a week for 20 minutes, 115-130 heartrate. Different times of the year it changes, Obviously contest prep its much more.

    Well specifically I was asking how much cardio to keep up my CR fitness and ability to walk up stairs without getting winded, etc. I had been careful and not gained much fat while bulking with zero cardio but I felt worse overall because I get tired/fatigued quicker physically and mentally. I prob used that method for 6 years or so. But over time my opinion towards cardio has changed when viewed more for its general health benefits and mood enhancing properties.

    I do it as part of a pretty high strung schedule to save time and my level of cardiovascular fitness is great.
    Interesting for sure. That's my style...nice and quick! I need to do this!
    Stupid question, but do you do it at home in a room with standard ceiling height? Do they make ropes that are small enough that they don't hit the ceiling?

  4. Hey, yeah just buy the longest rope with an open ended handle and knotted cord so you can cut the cord to length and retie to suit. I have one of the cheap $4 pvc ropes and it does the job. So long as you have around a foot of head clearance between the ceiling you can skip indoors given you don't jump ridiculously high.
