The best results that i ever get, are by morning cardio. Walking at a high pace, trying to achieve the identical heart rate of 120-130 palms.

When I am at the gym, i always do treadmill.

that is a good Ratio in recovery time. Normally Tabata is 20 secs to 10 secs recovery. so 1 min hard work to 15 secs recovery is very good.

It's also the quickest I can get my feet out of the rower's stirrups and get into position on the Airdyne. It takes exactly 10 minutes to complete the tabata and I am wiped. Rest for a minute and hit it again.

All the while, trying to watch Sports Center, of course.

I am still too terrified of my achilles tendon to run. I ruptured it about a year ago running 40 yard sprints on pavement. I am still not back to 100% strength in that calf, FFS.

Guys - dead serious - if you don't want to do simply running or jogging or bullshit - toss 25-35 lbs in a pack and go a few miles with it - combined cardio and strength

I took your advice and have been wearing my 40 pound weighted vest during my conditioning drills. It makes a huge difference.

Tough Mudder is in two weeks.  Running a ton.  Trails by me add about 2 min per mile for me.....lot of rocks.

Good luck

A lot of these permabulk fellas can't appreciate how cool trail runs are.
Props homes.


Yup 8)...there is a big park near the outskirts of my town. all different trails in the woods .rocks,branches,and even a log over water to climb over.
the whole park is two miles if you run the outskirts.

Running the whole park is two miles and we only ran it once....you cant run the whole way as you have to really watch your step with rocks and trees down on the trails plus my favorite, a log over a stream and mud you have to walk over carefully so you don't fall.


...so some is a run and some is a fast as you feel comfortable without falling.

yea, trails are tricky. My dumb ass has a half marathon on what is claimed to be one of the fastest courses to BQ for boston, for the full marathoners. Their first half of their full is a net drop then at half of it, which is where our half starts and flattens out but I didn't realize it was hard packed trail so not that it would really matter as I ran my fastest 10k race on similar trail I'm still shooting for my 2:10 half PR

No cardio benefit, IMO.

I've learned (through trial and error) that a little walking stops knee pain when I'm putting on muscle.

Body fat is okay-ish, not competing, or on a diet. I'm more on the lifestyle side of things with working out 5x/week, being reasonable with food, and taking care of myself.

No more crazy deadlifts or squatting until exhaustion. And let's face it... my legs never looked great, anyways. :)

They are awesome - range is enough so I can just leave my phone anywhere in my basement gym and it reaches the headset.  No more stupid arm band.

Someone on my flag football team asked if he could work out with me...toned it down today as to not kill him....but he did pretty well.

1/2 mile run

1/4 mile 80lb sandbag front carry, 3 stops for pushup x 10 (no momentum type push up)

2 x ab circuit with 20lb medicine ball:

Kneeling push throw x 10
Side throw x 10 (left and right side)
1 Min plank

50 yard bear crawl
50 yard sandbag drag (80 lb)
25 yard clean and throw (80 lb)

Shuttle run:  width of football field / 3/4  / 1/2

1/4 mile farmer sand bag carry.

End.  I like to get about 5 miles in for this type of workout, but tempered it a bit.

I think so.

I didn't do shit for this stuff until March of 2013 when someone at work challenged me to do a Tough Mudder with them.  I was horrid, but once it clicks, it's pretty cool.  It's the one thing that actually has great residual benefits throughout the day.

I run trails with the Salomon Speedcross 3, have used them in the Spartan Races, and even a GoRuck light.   I think they're great.   Traction on walls and stuff is insane.  Just wish they had a rockplate in them for the pointy rocks.

Since I didn't care about looks, I got the red ones with orange trim for 80 bucks, rather than the blue/black ones that were going for up to $120

Only use for off road and flag football on the turf field.  1-2 times a week.

If I'm on a treadmill or road running, I use these horrible looking ATV-19s which I don't think they don't make anymore:

Many on my team have followed my blueprint on how to dominate the  suburban Dad circuits.  

We normally play against college kids.  In that league, we are a mid team - can beat anyone, but lose to anyone too....there's one team that's lost once in two seasons (to us, yay!) who dominates - has kids who run a 4.6, etc....

We are hoping we just ran into a particularly bad team (good guys though).   There are plenty of over 35 teams out there that I assume could dust us.

I hardly ever do kickbacks
I like rear delt work!
Ok on the leg machines
I train obliques for a more powerfull golf swing!

Need to look up Bulgarian split squat and RDL.
Working on my pullups, I'm terrible, can't do four sets of ten with my own bodyweight :-[
Cant agree more on the running. starting again outside this weekend.

And I do a bunch of supersets.

Ok on the obliques....you've convinced me.....for now.   I remember hearing this same argument for baseball during the steroid era.  Players were using PTs who were giving them bodybuilding routines and telling them to avoid exercises that make the waist thicker.  Coaches were like "they NEED those muscles"....

Played tag with my girls kid and friends, a little soccer, a little kick ball, a little catch.
The park we were at has a huge field, bigger then a football field. so I ran ran from one end to the other, not a full sprint but a good speed, faster then a jog.

plus people walking their dogs and just people walking the trails.

If you did 3-4 weeks, of 3x per week of 20 min Body For Life ( ::)) cardio, you'd be able to run the three miles without stopping.

Title: Re: Cardio
Post by: Grape Ape on March 07, 2016, 01:22:11 PM
I will give you a couple methods:

BFL cardio example (treadmill)

Minutes: Speed - all speeds done for one minute after warmup.

1-2:  3 mph
3:  4 mph
4:  5
5:  6
6:  7
7:  4
8:  5
9:  6
10:  7
11:  4
12:  5
13:  6
14:  7
15:  4
16:  5
17:  6
18:  7
19:  8 mph
20:  4

20 minutes.  Each successive time, increase the bottom and intervals (4.2 mph, 5.2 mph etc...)  If you can the base level to 6 mph....you'll be able to run 5.


Or try this:  Jog mile.......run 1/4, walk 1/8, run 1/4 - until you get another mile....then jog last one......

Either one will help you ramp up, without actually running more miles.

I know where I stopped and next time I plan on passing that and keep building that way.
Last year I was able to run 5 miles without stopping but it was a slooow pace.
It's just tough for me to run outside right now cuz my work schedule has me getting home after dark.
After next weeks time change I'll be out and run 2-3 times a week.

We have a three home run over the fence rule. it's an out if you hit it out after three.
They hit three right away. I was playing right and that's pretty much where they hit every ball for the rest of the game...I seriously did a lot of running.

One of my leagues has that same rule.

To flip sides, one of my infielders told me to "hustle up" once when I got off the field.  I explained - 2 games, 14 innings, 300 feet each way to the outfield and the bench, is 1.6 MILES more that I run than him each game to start, and that's without tracking the ball (and hitting tons of doubles, of course)........then I kindly asked him to shut the fuck up.

Turn over a card, do the number on the card.  Run the deck.

That was my first running in over a month, I think it was in the 22 minute range.  I did the first mile in 7, second in 7:30, last one in 8.  Last mile I had to push a bit, which was a wake up call since a 5k should barely break a sweat.  When I'm in better shape, I usually try to run at a 7:30 pace for anything in the 5-10 mile range.

For trails though, it all depends on the terrain.....can go up to 10 min miles when it's tough....

I train with a back pack often - it's a rucksack from www.goruck.com

What I've found is key is that you need one that sits high and tight on the back...so it doesn't bounce and kill your shoulders.

Also, depending on the weight used, it's best if you alter your running style to where you "roll" the heel to the front to minimize impact, since running with weight can mess up your joints.

Had a half marathon race yesterday, 1 hour 36 mins.
Probably the worst race I've ever run. Went off way too quick and it was a complete blow out in the 2nd half of the race.

Still a great time though, I try not to do that

Yes I still am. Tore my hamstring end of 2014 when I was finally going to achieve a sub 2 hour half but at mile 10 my hamstring tore and I limped to finish line. Last year my pace was horrible and still is but it's a work in progress. Just did my 10th half of the year Saturday and added miles as I'm doing the marine Corp marathon in 6 weeks. The humidity this summer was brutal even doing my long run on weekends starting at 5am

Do it.   You could easily combine some of your traditional workouts and free up conditioning days.

There will be no elipticals here.  Those are for those who take shaky sideways shirtless photos in gay men's roadside bathrooms.

My workout:

60lb sandbag - clean / front squat / press / back squat..7 reps...followed by 1/4 mile run.......as many times as possible in 45 minutes.

Try this:

Get a timer on your phone (I use seconds).........walk briskly for 2 Min, then run fast for 30 sec....just do that for two weeks.

The two mile jog after will be easy.

2 mile trail run at a decent clip last night without stopping. where I run there is a field in the middle of the park maybe somewhere around 100 yards.after the trail run I would run back and forth then break.I did that three times at a pace faster then a jog but not full speed.

Your rear delts are probably too big and heavy which pulls you back.

So I should run backwards up hill and let my rear delts pull me forward?

Went to the Yankee game last night.stood in line for 20 min to get a $12.00 beer and snacks.
Woman who took my order was overworked with the crowd but still was nice to everyone and had a smile so I gave her a $5 tip.
Walked to my seat and proceeded to spill my beer and my girls drink :-\


...went back to the same lady and she refilled them for no charge..I guess karma does work sometimes.
