Lately I have been doing 5-8 miles every morning to get more endurance. And lose some excess weight of course. :laugh:

i do a general work out 4 times a week, 1 day il work my muscles, and the next time i do straight cardio.

2 days before a game i start pounding water, and stop working out (so im not sore from working out on game day)
i basically walk around with a gallon of water and just keep drinking it.. no soda, no energy drinks, no coffee, and no crap food.

this way my body is hydrated, and healthy-ish.. lol

game day all i drink is water, and i bring food to cook.. and generally wait 45 minutes to an hour before i go back out and play.. this way i dont puke inside my mask and all over myself.. cause i dont wana drive home smelling like a homeless dude..

Haha, very nice.:)
I've gained weight recently so now I have to do more cardio then before so I can last 8+ hours of paintball on game days.

Currently...insanity..not so much for paintball as for frisbee, but it does the same thing...sheds pounds while building cardio.

But riding your bike isn't really similar muscles to the muscles used while running around in the woods...I found it rather ineffective for paintball training.

I don't have problems with my legs when running. Its the lungs that give me the most trouble. So any kind of lung-training is helpful.

Ahh...I have leg issues as is...plus cardio...I broke my leg when I was little, and I also have knee issues..so strengthening my leg is a big part of my deal.

Riding your bicycle uses more muscle groups then running does. Same with swimming. Swimming and biking can be the best and most effective way to build up stamina and shed excess body fat.

but biking..does not translate to running...they are two different motions...just because you can bike a million miles, doesn't mean you are going to be able to run.

You're right, but the motion of Swimming or Biking has a higher range of muscle use than just running alone. More muscle being worked equals more energy being burnt and more fat loss. Thus you will be better at running. It is a cardiovascular activity non the less. Either way it is an alternative to the high impact running constantly does to your joints. Even when your young it effects you. Cardio is cardio. And I am 100% sure if you can bike a million miles you'd be able to at least run for a god amount of time. Besides if you aim to be fast sprinting is the way to go. We are discussing CONDITIONING not BEING FAST. Excess weight loss, and by far swimming and biking are two of the best ways to burn fat.

@Ka1iBuR: Kite/parachute running oh my.. :)
