I run a mile every morning. It doesn't sound like much but after doing the same for each of the three guys I have to CR for I'm usually pretty tired.

As far as legs I do a workout including squats, leg press, leg curls, and let extensions weekly.

Also mix in stationary bike, treadmill, elyptical, jumping rope, and an agility ladder workout after most of my upper body workouts.

Try doing your workout at at faster pace - less rest in between sets. This will give you all the cardio you need. If your doing squats and resting less in between sets, you will get a cardio workout. Or you can do the stair stepper for 20-30 minutes a day to help with cardio.

anything you do that involves movement is gonna give a little cardio,but i don't think just doing the weights fast is gonna cut it for your running muscles.i look to explode the weight when i lift,and do it with a weight that i could lift at least 15 times if going slower,this way i can get 10-12 reps in.i also use only dumbbells at this time,don't have room to put the bench up.....

I work out hard over the winter. I do cycle spinning classes and weight circuit training at the gym. Push ups and dumbbell training at home.

I ride my bicycle-outside when possible 2 or 3 times a week (10-25 miles each day), or spin inside and do considerable stretching. I also go out and do some of the slowest 'wind sprints' in history, but that gets me breathing harder than the bicycle.

Webbie, knowing how things are going these days you are probably getting closer to the truth than we want to admit.
