Im not the first nor the last person to say that but if i can get on a bike for an hour at low intensity assuming i am eating right and gear /training is spot on and get ripped then i would rather do 1 hour of easy cardio than 30 minutes of intense cardio....cuz believe me i would LOVE to read MD magazine or Flex magazine on a stationary bike pedaling for an hour on 1 or 2 setting....what your guy's take on this? is it possible, or is Lee Preist the only one who can do an hour on a stationary bike at low intensity and get ripped? i know levrone on levronereport.com cardio in his youtube videos he states he want to get ripped so he does 1 hour in the morning and 1 hour at night, he was saying that all while he was walking on a treadmill at full tilt but NO WHERE did he state his goals for heart rate during his 1 hour cardio training sessions...and neither does lee preist state in his video either what heart rate he was searching for, nor was he grabbing the handles of the bike to check his heart rate, do the pros not care about heart rate? do they simply think that if they do cardio regardless of heart rate that it will suffice?
From personaly experience - i have been doing 45min of cardio 5-6 days a week, cardio in the mornings - weights at night. I keep my heart rate at a min of 130 (this is key to lose fat).
I get bored VARY easy doing cardio so ill start running on the Treadmil and run for 15min, switch to bike for 10, back to treadmil for 10, and finally back on bike for 10. This has worked very well for me.
Keep in mind if you do low intensity cardio its important not to miss a cardio workout... the low intensity cardio will do the trick. but there can be more effective was to get where you need to be quicker. Try doing interval training... where you fluctuate you heart rate from high to low...
Personally i have just stuck with the 45min of cardio have have seen good results in the long run
