Well I decided it's been too long since I've done any cardio... I also decided that the best way to go about doing cardio for a guy concerned with maintaining as much muscle mass as possible is to do interval training and one that trains the largest muscle groups possible to simulate weight training more closely ... aka rowing.
I bought myself a cheap rowing machine from sears that seems to do the trick. It's just a fan style machine so it's a bit loud when I get it all wound up but just have to crank the music a bit louder. ha
I could have just used the rowers at the gym but I never feel like doing cardio right after weights and I didn't want to make more trips to the gym than I already do so I'd feel like I live there ... so this seemed like a good compromise.
I also did a session on Sunday that I forgot to record that was the same as this.
My plan is to row on Wednesday and at least 1 (or both) of the weekend days.
Hopefully it was a worthy investment. So far I'm pleased with it.
