    hard? sure? harder then sprinting your all out for 1 minute, with 1 minute at 5mph jog, then 1 minute all out sprint, continued for 12-15 minutes... yeah, uh, no. no comparrison.

    walking is for people that don't want o man up and sprint at 11/12mph for a minute

    thats why you only do it for 10-15 minutes

    as if... maybe the treadmills you have dont go up on high inclines.. that... and a fast enough speed, give it time, walk properly (yes u can cheat) and your calves will burn like ****... its not that easy

  4. has anyone ever used a stepmill after?

  5. I have to say: if you can't do at least 20-30 min at about heart rate 160 then as much muscle you may have, you are a *****. Whether you are doing fasted cardio, or normal cardio before or after your weight session, it only takes dealing with the boredom and that's it. Ellipticals and treadmills and the such are not "hard" compared to say benching 225 8 times. Suck it up men, it is good for you.

    If you can barely walk at 3.5 mph at even the highest incline for 30-45 min then you need to shape up. Yes it will get your sweat on, but jesus it is not all about slinging some iron and then sitting down and reading a magazine between sets.

  6. I don't do the same "quick cardio" after lifting, some days I do elliptical, some are incline treadmill, and others are stationary bike. Sometimes I don't use any machines and pop in my P90X cardio or plyometrics DVD. Sometimes my cardio is fasted in the morning, sometimes after lifting, it all depends on my schedule for the day and how I feel.

    I don't have any scientific proof about one being better than the other. I think so long as you're doing something about your body fat (if that is the reason for the cardio) the scale and mirror will tell you if it is working or not.

    walking on a incline can give you a great cardio workout, and can really help burn fat and keep you in ketosis. Long distance running can knock you out of it. Its obvious you've never done it long enough to see the great results you can get from it.

  11. 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.

    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.

    Then you do not have the necessary software on your comp to read it?

    i dont know i usually have no problem. this is the first time nothing has happened when i hit open

  19. 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...

    walking at an incline works out your ass?

  21. 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

    No. Well, yes?


    I was speaking figuratively, not literally.

  23. 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?

  24. 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.

    Try same incline 5.0mph... I feel like my heart is going to explode! Thats a MANS SPEED.

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