    What Are Your AM Cardio Speeds?

    I do my AM cardio at 5.5 speed for around 30-35 min. What speed do you guys do your AM cardio at?

    between 4.0 (fast walk) and 6.0 (nice jog to pick up heart rate quick).

    You cant tell anything from your cardio speed without knowing the incline as well. I do 30 minutes 4X's EW on a 15 degree incline at 2.7-3.0 speed

    wow thats crazy. i never do much of an incline, i always felt it was more for leg strength than building endurance and keeping your hr up.

    i do intervals, at a 6 incline, 7.2 - 7.5 - 7.8 - 8.1, each time for minute for four times then cool down for a minute. i warm up for 2 mins before that at 6.8.
    takes 20 mins
    sometimes ill add jumprope 5-10 mins after.

    I go 5mph for 3 miles. NO incline here. It may be 6 soon, 5 is FINALLY becoming easy.

    my target heart rate limits me to stay at like 4.5 max... sucks to have a higher resting heart rate...

    I believe I can contribute to a lot of my hamstring strength/development to doing cardio on an incline.....
