20-30 every other day.
I need to be able to run 3miles in under 24 minutes in my Physical Fitness testing for the Marine Corps and so I am on a 5k training routine.
Running is not my forte unfortunately.
About 30 minutes a day during my lunch break. The goal is defnately fat loss.
Here we go again!

I voted 20-30 minutes cause that is prob average. I do 6-8 minutes before my SS workout MWF and about 5 minutes of cooldown after I lift. I have just recently restarted doing around 40 minutes on my non-lift days. I know this will cost me some gains on my lifts however I have built an OK base of strength and want to get thinner. I am still a fat cow. Also I am hoping that an increase in cardio capicity will help me to recover my breath between work sets (Between my second and third sets of squats it prob takes 6 minutes or so to catch my breath,I usually can't wait that long to lift again).

I've been trying to get in 20-30 minutes at least 4-6 times a week. Being almost 300 lbs. I feel like it helps me stay healthy, but it's not so much it detracts from my strength. Overall I think it does make me feel a little better and perhaps helps recovery some as well.
20-30 2-3 x's per week. Overall health and recovery more than anything else.
GPP and for health and under 15 minutes, but will be doing more in the near future for maintenance or fat loss.
Cardio as in running, treadmills and stationary bike? None!
Cardio as in getting the heart rate up? Yes, for fat loss and health. I use complexes along with my workouts and some on off days.
i dont go for time i go until i hit a certain amount of cals say 200 - 300 every day of low intensity cardio stritcly for fat loss.. i use the stepper good time to read up on my muscle & fiction mags lol
Squat - 375
Bench - 265
Deadlift - 425
Goal: BW/OH squat 185 LBS x 15 by summer 2010
I get about 30min a day.
I cycle everywhere and I live about a 15min bike ride from university/gym. I hate the hill in the middle of the route with a passion but I have noticed an increase in recovery from doing it regularly. At first I thought it would harm my progress because on days after leg training my legs are burning so bad by the time I reach the top, but the DOMS definitely clears up quicker afterwards.
Sometime I'll be keen and do a 40min run about once a week. But that's rare at the moment - still bulking!
400(335) Bench Press
600(520x3 2xBW) Dead Lift
500(495x1) ATG Squat
365 Front Squat
consistency and intensity.
About 30 mins 3x per week for health and fat loss. I was against cardio perhaps for ego (like many guys at the gym) but when I saw a powerlifter on TV doing jogging and then lifting an insane amount of weight I listened to him.
I was surprised the guys at the strongest man do not meet the "fat powerlfiter image" that many seem to think a powerlifter should look like.
Right now, I only do cardio on Saturdays, playing basketball for 2-4 hours. I'm probably going to start on Wednesday evenings for 30 minutes or so.
Give chalk a chance.
