When you guys do your cardio, do you go all out?
What I mean is when I step on the stair-master, I go for 30 mins on level 8, interval training. Towards the end of the session I am sweating buckets, I wear two t-shirts and both are dripping and I look like I am about to pass out. My face is beet red, and I have to sit down and rest for about 10-15 minutes. Some people look at me like I am some kind of a freak.
I kinda enjoy putting my body through this.

I prefer to go with higher intensity and less time. I hate cardio so I like to get it over with as quick as possible.

I agree, I hate cardio, so I like to get it over with.

Like Mikey, I do sprints.

Mm... 8x100 meter sprints... It doesn't get much shorter than that, plus it gets you to the vomit threashold awfully fast.

Except maybe 10x60m. :D
