Jump rope, was voted the #1 cardio exercise. You can build more muscle and have better cardio than running. Running will mainly only increase your lung endurance and will help with muscle, but not as much as you might think. You could jump rope for 10 minutes straight and do about as much work as running for 30-1hr.

Yea. I can believe that, but here is the problem. Jogging, while it doesn't build muscle, burns the least amount of muscle/protien

High intensity stuff like jump rope & sprinting burns muscle to keep up with energy needs.

I say interval training is best. Like jump rope for 5 minutes then jog slowly for 10 and then repeat.

do a circuit, run from one spot to another and back for 30 seconds, then jump rope for 30 seconds, then (big guns now because i'm out of ideas) do push ups

it builds up fast, and also makes your body adapt quicker

I am on the swim team, and play baseball. Swimming is excellent with endurance, and you use a large variety of muscles, especially if you mix certain strokes. Front crawl, breast stroke, back stroke, and butterfly (two arms, w/ dolphin kick). Baseball is just something to keep you busy, and you run a lot. Circuit training, lift lighter weights, more reps, maintaining a target heart rate for 15-30 minutes. Simply running is also good. Do push ups, ab workouts. Those are excellent for building your strength, and burn fat. Being flexible, making sure you stretch before and after working out, will also help you get up your speed and muscle endurance.

I just do sports. I like paintball. But football is the #1 sports priority. Other than football I do indoor and outdoor track to stay in shape and to make myself better for football. Workout regularly 4-6 times a week. Every Tues-Thurs indefinitly. Everyother week I get in monday and friday in there to. As soon as I can drive, I'll be working out everyday that I'm at school. Then once school is over I have a week off. During that week I'm hitting up BC football camp for 3 days. Then the up coming monday Football workouts start at school, which is made up of lifting and running. I stay active all year. So I'm generally always at top performance. Then I ball.

well, personally I'm kinda lucky, but at the same time unlucky when it comes to conditioning. I play collegiate sports so with my team I have 2hr practices 6 days a week except on game days. I also to keep up with the competition lift weights 4-5 days a week (for about 2hrs at a time, no less) and run about 4 days a week for 30min-hr (generally 4-8 miles). Now one thing that has helped me as an overall player though but also as a front man has been my reflex work. I'm a lacrosse goalie, so I have to be quick and explosive. I don't know how many times I've been opened up on/ambushed and because the first shot missed I had time to get cover and situate myself. another thing that can help you a ton is to practice sliding techniques and to practice running from bunker to bunker as quick as possible and put pop cans behind each one and work on your shot on the run and your bunkering technique.
