    you're trying to get cardio, it does get you breathing, but depending how high the incline is (15% for example)... i find its a bitch on the legs first at certain speeds

    and yes, cardio is easy - its all about getting over the boredom... and the first 10mins are always the hardest, once ur into it and that 1 hour is up for example... ur gona be thinking "**** i can do more... and want too...."

    thats usually the point when you should stop, at that point your metabolism has lowered. When you get that feeling like man i could go on forever! usually a good time to wrap it up, unless you're going for distance.

    You have to click the link, then a separate screen will open asking if you want to save the file, click yes and it'll open. At least that's what I did.

    walking is for people that don't want o man up and sprint at 11/12mph for a minute
    It has nothing to do with manning up... I do not need to do that much cardio. Also, no one ever said it was harder than HIIT, but that it was hard in general.

    Trying to walk @15 incline @ 3.5 speed is a biotch! No joke. I tried this yesterday and I got a side ache from hell and my legs were struggling before 5 minutes. My ass was busted. I even slowed the pace to 2.8.

    Doing the SS program for an idea of my workout before attempting this..

    I can do 45 min on a eliptical @ highest incline with a tension of 7 fairly easily. But after a hellish WO the tread mill just dominates me. But I'll get that fawker, I'll get it...

    I like doin cardio after my workout to cool down or burn more calories if i still have a ton of energy. If i still want to feel the pump later I like to pop a couple NaNO X9 later in the day

    I am a little confused with all the replies to this topic.
    I usually do cardio after lifting for about 45 mins(sprint,jogging) is this too much. Also does it matter how many miles you run? I always have a goal of atleast 4miles, would it be to much if on my off days from lifting I jog for 50mins?

    I usually get about 2.5 miles in when doing avg 3.2 @ 15 incline. I think 4 miles might be pushing it if you are going for fat loss, you may also lose muscle. When walking/jogging outside I keep my pace nice and easy with minor increases in speed spread throughout.

    Sure I can run forever at a decent pace, I ran for distance and I play competitive soccer. But I do not want to lose muscle so no HIIT after a workout for me.

    I started @ 2.5 to 3.5 (1 minute intervals) Always a 15.0 incline. Then increased speed as it became easier at those speeds. The best part is according to the machine its over 500cals in 30 minutes, even though it may be inaccurate, its a badass feeling of accomplishment + I think it does good on calves, The last I go for the max speed i can tolerate non-stop brutal 2-3 minutes. Its hell.
