    Are you performing this cardio for fat loss purposes?

    Edit:

    If so, low intensity is best....

    Keep your heart rate between 65-70%MHR..
    Max Heart Rate = (220 - Your Age) * .65 (or .70)

    Keep this up for 45-60 mins...

    IMO, AM fasted cardio is your best choice.... then wait 45mins before ingesting your pro/carb meal, or 15-20mins before ingesting your pro/fat meal... (whichever one is your choice)....

    I believe it is for 16 minutes at a very high intensity level >80%mhr. Listen to BlownSC reply. Max-ot is good for cardiovascular health and for increasing VO2 max.

    With max-0t cardio you go for 16 mintues as hard as u can. U try to increase your numbers each session meaning burning more cals. going a farther distance and ect. (pretty much trying to increase whatever the machine you are useing displays)so each session u should improve. personally for me i like high intensity cardio better for burning fat it is what works best for me.
