    Ya I ride my bike all over the place. I got a BMX and a mountain bike, but mainly ride the BMX. To boxing and back is likely 15 miles, plus add on another 10 or so a day atleast. I don`t even consider it cardio, although I suppose it is and especially when I`m in a hurry.

    For someone starting out though who likely has shit cardio...a bike is probably a good start, much like a fast-paced walk or light jog.

    When you get yourself to the point that you can do full out tabatas and hill sprints, it is hard to really consider other forms as a cardio workout, plus add the time factor. Getting better results both aerobic and anaerobically in about 15 mins as opposed to 1-2 hrs is hard to wrap ones head around to even go jog, or bike for cardio.

    Bearing that in mind, you don`t get good cardio by jumping head first in the deep end either. I wouldn`t recommend to anyone who hasn`t built up and worked at cardio, to do some of the best results oriented things unless they were prepared first by working their way to it.

    Ya i rode my bike to my buddy's, we went for a 1hr 15 min walk, then i rode home.

    I know walking isnt the best exercise but my buddy isnt in good enough shape to run.

    It's still good exercise. It's hard to believe, but with all things being equal, walking burns more calories, and it take more effort from your muscles than running.

    In running, you'd want your body to move as efficiently as possible. With the elasticity of your muscles and tendons, running doesn't demand as much effort as walking does, nor does running faster necessarily mean that you'll burn more calories covering the same distance.

    Walking on the other hand, doesn't make full use of our momentum. It takes more energy to go fast while keeping yourself from breaking into a run.

    It's a good add-on if you need something extra to help burn fat. More importantly, knowing this should bring to question the point of why you're doing an exercise, or in other words what you want to get out of it.

    It's just some things to think about. By the way what kind of loads are you using for your weight training at this point?

    Thats basically why i walk. Just to burn some extra calories while im eating like a horse trying to pack on muscle.

    Im pretty weak and out of shape still, but im going rather heavy (for me) on most of the bigf lifts (bench press/pull ups) and a little less so for smaller muscles like arms. For forearms (palm up wrist curls ets) i like high reps (15-20 reps). I like to train close to (if not completely to) failure. For some reason i feel like im cheating if i stop early.

    Ill do this for a month or so and then mix in a few new exercises and maybe use higher reps.

    For example:
    Bench Press..................3 sets 6,5,4 reps
    Push ups......................2 sets 20 reps
    Incline Laterals..............2 sets 9 reps
    Military Press.................2 sets 7 reps
    Close Grip Bench Press....2 sets 8,7 reps
    Overhead Extension........2 sets 10 reps
    Sit ups.........................2 sets 15 reps
    The actual weights are irrelevant (for this, obviously they are relevant). As long as i do as many reps as i can (or close to it) and continue to add reps/weight to the exercise over time, im happy. I dont lift to be like a powerlifter, i couldnt care less how much i can bench. I just want to get in good shape. I also concentrate on form as opposed to how much i can lift. I keep track of all weights and reps per work out to ensure that im moving up in reps/weight regularly.
