I've read that while you can remain strong with good muscle mass for weeks or months if you stop resistance training for a while, but the cardiovascular system can become very deconditioned in just days.

Can't find the study verifying it, but it certainly feels true right now.

Bruv, I work a sedentary job. This is how I stop myself being a fat wreck.

Can confirm, and it seems to be worse the more specific the cardio is. I can be away from the treadmill for a week or two and not notice any real difference but a week off Judo and I'm basically dieing thirty minutes into class.

Cardiac output is a function of cardiac health, the healthier your heart the quicker your cardio bounces back when you start training again. Nothing is really static, our bodies homeostasis; you're either going forward or you're going backwards.

How do you lads feel about 'finishers'? I was considering just adding some quick interval work on a rower at the end of my sessions to make sure this sort of lack of fitness doesn't happen again.

It's amazing how shit your cardiovascular system can get if you let it. I noticed today that I woke up, got out of bed, ate breakfast, and found I was out of breath standing in the shower. I mean, fucking hell.

I'm going to do it again today - while trying to avoid all the newly installed imposters at the gym.

I'm deeply confused by the way I've seen other people do cardio. I don't understand how people can exercise at a sedate enough pace to watch something on TV or use a tablet and call that cardio. Is it really even exercise at that point?

Steady-state has its uses, but I agree for the majority of young/otherwise healthy people interval training is far more effective and fun.

Steady-state is very useful. When you're training for the marathon, for instance, you're taught to run slow enough that you can still talk to people. You aren't supposed to burn yourself out on every cardio session, thats what intervals or fartlek is for.

And that's the problem. Steady-state is very useful for endurance training, and not much else.
If you want to exercise solely for your health and fitness, that sort of endurance training has limited benefit, and can even be detrimental in the long run.

Very easy way to burn fat. I have two or three steady state sessions a week - they get longer each time though. I like them very much.

HIIT/Interval/Anaerobic training is only useful once you have a decent aerobic base built up. IMO if you can't do a sub 30 minute 5k then you have no place doing interval sprints and sled work, which is why I find it so annoying when people on the internet continually recommend that kind of training as being universally superior to LSD/SS cardio training, even to complete beginners.

You're quite right, which is why I love the cardio base so much. That thirty minutes is the best exercise I do.

I get earache if it's cold due to running pretty quickly. Wear a hat.

You can steal a hat, or throw together a makeshift one. Earplugs could work I suppose, but I wouldn't advise it if you're running along roads and the like.

If you come into possession of any money, I highly recommend exchanging it for a couple of Buffs® (or the dirt cheap unbranded ones you can get off Ebay or shops like trespass.)
You can squash them down to nothing in a back pocket, and you've got a hat or scarf whenever you need one.

Not him but I find headphones help so yeah. Earmuffs also work and that is one of the reasons they exist.

What is happening is cold air is getting into your ear canal which is covered with sensitive nerve endings and lacks anything in the way of protection from the cold. Combined this leads to a brain-freeze in the ear.

My problem with running outside is the first twenty minutes. I can do it on a machine, I can establish a nice rhythm, get over that first wheezing bit, and then I'm good for a long time - outside in the cold, it seems to take a lot longer and there is more chance I would give up early on a run.

Well, since posting in this thread 7 weeks ago about getting back on the cardio, I have religiously walked at least 140k steps a week, cut slightly back on the alcohol, logged all my calories eaten and have lost 8 kilos.
