    I've been doing HIIT for my cardio sessions the last few months actually.

    I don't "love it". it's a challenge, I like how I can wax out a session in far less time and I can gradually add intervals to make it tougher.

    A nice change of pace, I'll say that at this point.

    It's good because you get a pretty good amount of cardio in a much shorter time.

    Downside, you get more sore than just jogging.

    My favorite cardio is jumping rope because it works on your agility and mental focus. The repetitive quick up and down motion makes you consciously aware of how energy flows from your feet, through the body, and up and out through your hands back through the motion of the rope swinging. See for yourself

    Basketball would be tight, but for me, I like to get my stride even, and kind of pound my hip flexibility into balance, on the treadmill for 20 minutes. Then martial arts, then lower rest times in the weight room. BMX, swimming, sledgehammer and car pushing would all be really cool too.

    All I know is that, once you have cardio, you never want to lose it.

    any sport first of all, I like basketball: it's almost like interval training but funner.

    I like sprints too. I don't know why, but ladders are my favorite.

    Swimming is dope too.

    I can't just go outside and jog. Shit is weak and the concrete makes my legs and ankles sore faster.

    HIIT on a recumbent. I've definitely gotten better results, as opposed to going the same speed for 45min.

    Just a regular run/jog is what I'm on now, though. I gas out quicker from that, I like the challenge. Basketball is nice, too.

    biking to a track, interval sprint training, running up and down hills and/or steps, jumping rope, bear crawls, squats, burpees.

    that HIIT training is where it's at though. 60 sec. on, 15 sec. off. 40 sec. on, 20 sec. off, 30 sec. on, 30 sec. off, 20 sec. on, 10 sec. off.

    switchin it up each day keeps that interesting.

    fuckin kettlebell swings and ropes are killers, but worth it.
