    For fun I like boxing/mma because it has other benefits within the cardio. Also, soccer, mountain
    Biking etc.

    With a specific goal such as bulking I think swimming would be good because of limited joint
    stress. Now I hate swimming and don't do it, but it still applies. Low intensity walking/jogging/eliptical
    As well.

    Cutting : I like a mix of aneoribic and aerobic. Boxing circuit followed by two mile run. I did
    Randy Couture's complex several years back which is a barbell complex. 0lympic bar with 25's
    (Or whatever) 7 different exercises for 7 reps before putting the bar down and resting for a
    minute then another rotation for 7 cycles as I remember. Hard as hell!

    I done plyometrics and intensive interval shuttles a while back. They helped me make national and international level rugby.

    I'd say Crossfit, we were built to throw stones at the Rabbit, not chase it.

    My favorite cardio has changed since the thread began:

    Complexes have become my friend since I hate elliptical and treadmills. Following that I will list "sled work" and in the spring "Swimming".

    I started reading while doing cardio, and I actually find it pretty enjoyable. If I get into whatever I'm reading a half hour will fly by.

    I do 2 (sometimes 3) slow-mo cardio, but on sunday I do a very light 2 mile jog and then a circut on pull ups/dips/sprints and jumps outside at my park, at like 6 in the morning.

    ......brilliant!

    I think swimming is great cardio if the intensity is high enough and can also be a good form of active recovery since it puts less stress on the joints. Barbell complexes are actually my favorite type of conditioning exercise because I feel they give the most in terms of conditioning and maintaining overall strength.

    QFT. Tantric at that. Other than that, Judo, heavy bag work in the garage in the summer at 110 degrees, beating a tire/dragging a tire around the back yard usually with one, two, or three of my boys on it at a time. Good stuff. I hate running now, eliptical is ok, took a spinning class only because she was amazingly hot, big breasted and wore loose tops, tight shorts and thongs. Tried yoga, wasn't too bad, it's a whole lot more fun with the wife in front of me during this though.

    I love walking, but I have to start also jogging/running to train to help get ready for BCT/AIT and just to get my BF% down a lot.

    Just added 10 minutes of walking (big incline as fast as I can) 4 days a week. Two other days I do around 20 minutes.

    During spring and summer, push the SUV up and down the block or put the kids on a sled/tire and drag them around.

    I play soccer on Tuesdays & Thursdays for an hour a piece.

    I hate running just to run.

    I have an Elliptical that I use every once in awhile.

    I also train in Aikido (think Steven Seagal) for a few hours a week as well as Brazilain JJ/ grappling.

    It never seems to be enough though.

    Glad this thread has resurfaced, lot's of good ideas in here. My favorite cardio used to be the punching bag, but since i've moved out I haven't had access to it. I'm trying to get back into running twice a week now, working my way up to 3 miles in 18 mins eventually. Also am going to start barbell complexes.
