    cardio alternative??????

    hey fellas i was wondering if the heavy bag and boxing is as effective as the normal boring ass cardio for fat burning. i have been back at the bag in the am and i must say it is alot more fun then walking on the tredmill.

    how long do you hit the bag for?

    I suppose if you can keep your heart rate up high enough for 30 mins of boxing i cant see why you wouldnt lose weight.

    remember though, with cardio its how long you do it, now how hard for max fat loss.

    well atleast its totally true for my body. what are your stats?

    Play sports. Racketball, Basketball, and Tennis is fun and makes the time go by much quicker then being on a treadmill. I an play ball for hours and not realize it but Ill go insane running on a treadmill too long. Definity get into sports if you dont like the repetive cardio excises in the gym.

    Yes.

    I don't do cardio cuz it hinders recovery time which I don't want when trying to build some mass or maintain mass while trying to lose body fat.
