    For me it's treadmill at a varying incline of 6 to 12% or higher where your heart rate stays fairly high. Nothing compares to fat burning ability of morning fasted cardio. I'm 6', so I walk this routine @ 4.2 MPH for 30 minutes (I increase incline every few minutes then back down and repeat till done). I also run flat for 30 minutes.

    So you mix fast walking, and running? I've been sticking to CrossTrainer and bikes due to no Impact on my knees.
    I might shake it up.
