    push your car just like a prowler.

    If you're at a commercial gym, I'd say hop on their step mill (NOT stairmaster). Stepmills simulate walking stadiums steps.

    ^If your gym has a prowler then that is a great conditioning tool.

    Wamup and cool down on a piece of cardio eqipment (bike/treadmill/stepper etc etc) for 10mins each side of the weights session. That's 20mins cardio each training session that shouldn't interfere with your muscle and/or strength gains.

    Lately I've been doing sets of 80m Farmers Walks with the dumbbells, I'd count that in as cardio as well.

    i been toying around with cardio lately. basically i do some kind of circuit HIIT type of thing.

    on deadlift/squat days, post-workout i do:
    tire flips (tire is maybe 300 lbs im not sure), walking light-weighted lunges, farmers walk, and some kind of ab work.

    i just go the length of the gym, which cant be too much more than 50 feet. i repeat each cycle as many times as i can within 15-20 mins and take breaks when needed. usually take about a 1 min break between cycles.

    on bench days i do:
    sledgehammer work, push a kickboxing dummy the length of gym (since i dont have a prowler or sled), jog/sprint back, and medicine ball throws

    started a topic Powerlifting and Cardio

    Powerlifting and Cardio

    What kind of cardio do you guys do that doesn't interfere with your training?

    I want to do cardio not for fat loss, but the sole purpose of longevity and a healthy cardiovascular system.

    I was running quite a bit but stopped due to an ankle injury. I want to get back into cardio and was looking for ideas on what to do.

    I squat and deadlift 2-3 times a week each so I want to do something that will allow me to hit those hard.

    Im almost thinking about doing cardio on my training days after workouts, like a double session just to have full days off in between workouts.
Working...
