Just stay within your target heart rate. For me, this is 4.5 pmh with no incline. Good luck getting rid of the fat East, the Redline will have you jacked for your workouts bro.

More or less 130 beats per minute. I personally do 45 minutes since it's not very intense and it yields good results for me. If you're wasting too much muslce during a cut then gently increase your calories/protein intake.Originally Posted by East1600Plus

Depends on who you listen to...My personal philosophy is that the best cardio is the one you'll do on a consistant basis. I know this doesn't apply to you, but most people who ask questions like that are usually looking to drop a bunch of fat. Consistancy is the key IMO...

I'd do 30 minutes, 4 times a week if that's the case. This is coming from an endomorph so take it with a grain of salt.Originally Posted by East1600Plus

30 Minutes, 4 times a week should work well for you. Anything less than 3 times a week though, and you're going to have a heard time losing weight. The key is to fine something that you enjoy doing so that you'll keep doing it.

This is excellent advice. The idea is to get thos cals BURNED. The way you go about that is strictly a personal matter. I've always said that those who are short on time & patience should crank up the intensity. Others don't have that option due to orthopedic/cardiac issues or just plain personal preference. Find you own groove, because there's no "best way" when it comes to cardio. I like the do-as-little-as-humanly-possible approach to cardio myself.Originally Posted by rampage jackson
And another thing, caring about how much fat you burn during cardio makes as much sense as caring about how much muscle you build during weight training

And sometimes its not even about # of cals burned DURING work, but afterwards such as during HIIT's and sprints. The assualt you perform on your body during the workout (in terms of overall Energy expenditure) will pale in comparison to the energy your body uses during recovery.Originally Posted by freakboy
The efforts of other in this thread were attempt to illustrate the paramount importance of energy balance when cutting. Just burn more than you eat and you'll cut up.
Regarding the 'best' type of cardio - whoever stated it is the type you'll stick with (or enjoy doing) you are an f'in genius. I've always been all about unconvensional cardio. I juggle a soccer ball solo, play hockey, skip, do circuit training with weights and some skipping. Beating your brains out on a treadmill is a good way to turn you off endurance work.

You might want to mix in some intervals - burn more total calories in a shorter duration as well as provide a shock to your body. In my opinion, it is best to mix the interval sessions with the 30-45 min moderate sessions. A typical week could be:
Day 1, 3: 15 min, intervals, gauntlet
Day 2, 4: 30-45 min, low-moderate, treadmill
The Redline will definitly get you going, but watch out for the chills the first few days. Especially on an empty stomach.
