    How much cardio is to much

    what is everyone's views on cardio and how much is needed to be lean and maintain the leanness? also what type of cardio is preferred? is a brisk walk for 30 minutes in sweat pants and a sweater each morning enough.

    I used to do 40-60 mins runs, while its great fat burning it also burns some muscle, and muscle is harder gained than fat, so for the last 4 weeks been limiting to max 20-30 minutes while increasing intensity on cardio machine and this seem to keep little more strength and size on my legs, its still just a beginning for me of this change, but alot of long reading led me to this.

    So I'd say stick to under 30 minutes of intensive cardio of any sort and do not do it on your leg day, just my 02cent

    I think if you wear a sweater with your sweat pants cardio should be the least of your concerns.

    I don't do much cardio unless I'm trying to get really lean and then I only do it on NON- weight training days.

    I only do cardio while on prep or if I'm at least 1000 calories over my maintenance. Currently I'm about 1200 above maintenance so I get 20 mins of stairmill cardio in 3 times a week and play ice hockey once a week.

    If I eat a lot of food but don't do cardio then I huff and puff way too much when I shouldn't be.

    Dont play rugby anymore so no cardio for me. Walking between benches during a super set is about it for me.
