Ok so I am going to stop lifting for a bit and just focus on my cardiovascular health. I've been here long enough to know what some of the responses will be, before you talk me out of it know this..
1) I am a heavy smoker (1.8-3.5g of buds and 1+ pack a day)
2) All I have done for the last few (6-7) months is a modified Starting Strength routine.
3) I think I have some minor ED due to lack of circulation (smoking and a previous high fat diet).
So i'm looking for some insight on Cardio routines. FIRST AND FOREMOST: I WANT TO QUIT SMOKING. My options are my elliptical, my punching bags (150lbs and 250lbs), and running in my lovely neighborhood (milfs, gilfs, and dilfs galore). I would like to do all 3 to sort of have a high intensity to low intensity routine set up. So I figure, 4-8 weeks of some ass kicking cardio, a nice diet, a focused mind, and I should not have to smoke again and I'm on track to a healthy heart and lungs. I'm ready.
I don't know **** about PROPER cardio training. I have more to say and ask but I guess I'll wait for a response to this...
