Cardio After Weights...
- 02-02-2009, 07:53 PM
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...."

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 lost 65lbs doing cardio, but im sure any type of cardio if you're that over weight will do something great!

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.
