You see many guys at the gym who have no idea what they are doing. Many reps, too many sets, and way too much time on cardio machines. I see them doing 30 minutes or more at a steady pace on the elliptical for example...no intensity just steady work. What a waste of time! You can accomplish more with less. Try a 10 minute cardio with 2 minutes of high intensity alternating with 2 mins of slower pace. Your body will get more benefit from this routine. Current studies show greater effect on the heart and cardio system from short bursts of 2 minutes in high intensity. Same with weight training. High intensity means slow and heavy reps. Not more tha 6 to 8 a set. Maybe one warmup sets prior. This works!
