My approach on cardio recently is what this is about. After last years training I am looking to lose some weight. Trying to get down from 320 to 275. Please note I wear a polar T-31 non-coded heart rate chest strap that's compatible with the gym treadmills.
6 days a week taking Sundays off
-15 minutes stairclimber puts my HR around 157 the whole time
-20 minutes cybex upright bike on level 6 ,keeps my HR around 127
-30 minutes cybex treadmill 3mph/3.0 incline HR about 138
-abs(60 weighted crunches, 60 leg raises, 30 weighted cable crunches)
2 days a week(a self designed "cutting routine")
-6 sets 10 barbell shrugs
-4 sets 5 & 2 sets to failure on shoulder press
-3 sets 15 triceps pushdowns
-2 sets 10 overhead cable triceps extensions
-3 sets 10 lat pulldowns
**I was taught to skip biceps and chest on cut ups as it could diminish your gains from your mass routines**
That's it. I started with some step ups and squat jumps but didn't like them so I cut them from program. Not the most clever program but it keeps my heart going and keeps me sweaty. I'm considering running 2 miles, 2 times a week in a 12 pound weight vest... I'll see how it goes. No drugs or supps, just watching my diet and some cardio... I'll keep my results posted.
