Have a look at insanity workout. Best cardio I've ever done.

This is an interesting thread. Had to shake my head at some of it. Bro, not trying to knock you, but you really like to hear yourself talk and some of your information is incorrect. Not going to point out everything, but until you go through a true certification and learn nutrition and lifting (not a mentor trainer that in most cases barely know themselves) you should be weary about preaching training routines. You do make some good points all in the same. The main points to remember in your routine is diet and some type of training interval. Just cardio leads to muscle depletion if you do too much and then you are just skinny fat. Its also about calories in vs calories out.. The right calories. You need to understand macronutrients and create a diet plan on that. I could go on, but this isn't a bodybuilding site so for the purpose of snowboarding training, some kind of high intensity weight training (High rep, lighter weight) and interval training with cardio mixed with the right diet will get you far.

Cardio alone will not lead to muscle depletion. It would take a calorie deficit to also deplete muscle mass. Take running for example. Your leg muscles and your core work as you run, granted it's not as much as say doing squats or another leg exercise, but they are working.

To lose fat, I would concentrate circuit type exercising, where you do a set of exercises, one after the other, until all sets are completed. This will keep your heart rate up, which will help burn more fat.

As for cardio, keep your distances shorter. Don't think long run equals more fat burning. It's about intensity, do sprint intervals with short rests between each sprint. You will feel the difference in the intensity immediately. That will really get your heart rate going.

Combine those with a slight calorie deficit and you will lose weight, but make sure you are eating the right foods. Also, make sure you are eating enough food, too little and your body will store fat because it thinks it's starving and will save it's nutrients for energy later.

Insanity is a good workout but it's not for everybody and it depends what your goals are. It does have a little strength training but not nearly enough to bulk up.

I did it for the cardio but didn't lose much weight but using weight loss as a measure for working out is poor. Some muscles are more defined and flattened out my gut. I definitely got stronger because you do a lot of push ups. I jump higher and have more hang time because you do a lot of jumping and core work. I'm much faster on the courts and I don't tire easily. Also, my recovery period is much shorter.

After the 60 days of Insanity this is what happened to me (35 year old male):
Weight - lost 11 lbs and then gained 3 lbs.
Blood Pressure - 135/89 down to 121/88
Heart Rate at Rest - 85 bpm to 64 bpm
Waist - 34 before and after
Beer belly - 36 to 34
Chest - 38 to 40
I did not go on their diet plan. I still ate whatever I want and still drank beer. Even had beer as my recovery drink (on the odd occasion) post workout because it tastes sooooo good.

However, I would not recommend Insanity to everyone. It will be rough on the knees so if you have knee problems, forget it. If you are starting from the couch position or overweight or 40 years and up, you better check with your doctor first because when you start the program your heart will feel like it's going to explode out of your chest and you don't want to die of a heart attack. It means getting a heart rate monitor and not going over what your doctor tells you because you can easily do so with this program. If you are not familiar with proper technique on exercises, do it with someone who does because they don't explain much in the video. You need an experienced partner to show you what you are doing wrong; people tend to "think" they are doing correctly when they really are not.

I work out a lot, and i participate in a TRX class that is an hour long with pretty much no breaks. I have seen 5-6 people join the class then quit after the first one, not because it was too hard (weight wise, TRX is a bodyweight suspension trainer), but because their lungs couldnt keep up with the intensity of the class. Like what was said above, if you are a couch potato dont expect to start doing insanity/p90x right off the bat or you will kill yourself. I worked out for quit a while, but never saw the results i got when i changed my diet to <1400 calories for 2.5 months. Went from 195 20% bodyfat to 178lbs 8% bodyfat now and gaining (muscle that is).

ill just toss my 2 cents in. Insanity is good shit. Makes cardio not boring and is actually damn hard. Ive done all kinds of different workouts from extreme crossfit routines to boot camps. What helped me lose weight more then anything was cleaning up my diet. i stopped drinking as much and quit eating out alot and switched to 4 smaller meals rather then three big meals. cut from 240 to 215 in 2 months without killing myself.
