20-30 is low end to me. of course you have to work your way up to it just like with any other exercise. until i reached that time length of running i didnt notice a good loss of bodyfat. running around the block is a waste if you ask me, you have to sweat your butt off and work hard at it

absolutely. there is no point in cardio UNLESS you sweat hard and work to push your limits. if yr. trying to lose weight, lifting will help you of course, but cardio should be your primary focus. Don't screw around with worthless nonaerobic crap like yoga, pilates, etc. I see way too many obese women who rely on this sh!t for their only workout and wonder why they don't lose weight.

Not that guys usually fall for that pilates-works-you-out bullsh!t. I know babalu does yoga once a week (supposedly) but he also does insane hill runs along with all his pad work, grappling & striking etc.

start doing BJJ or Submission Grappling. A large over weight guy who joined me and my friends grappling about 8 monthes ago who was around 280 pound has lost around 23 pounds just grappling, lifting and eating right.

Just get some mat time in and do some grappling and you'll lose weight quick. I wouldn't recommend running extensively especially if you are overweight because it can do a huge number on your joints.

BTW I actually don't train at a camp or school anymore. I train with 6 of the guys that were in my original Muay Thai and BJJ classes, and got them to come train with me and we use this 3 story storage barn for training.

Sometimes it can get really hot in there (around 95-100 degrees during the summer)

You'll lose a lot of weight quick trust me.

Try the South Beach Diet. You'll lose 8-13lbs. in the first 2 weeks and most of it is belly fat. ONly problem is during those 2 weeks you won't have a ton of energy.

My brother is a freak of nature... he's a lifetime alcoholic, and has a HUGE beer gut. He's at least 50 pounds overweight. And he has cardio like crazy. He's been sponsored on some of the pro cycling teams around here, he's that good. If he *doesn't* do at least 20 or 30 miles a day, he doesn't feel right.

Looking at him on a bike is pretty funny. Big, heavy-gutted dude with a red face and a swollen nose from the lifetime of heavy boozing... putting people to shame on long uphills.

Some people just have big, huge hearts and big arteries. Some people just have smaller hearts, or smaller arteries. I know a person who did 40 minutes per day of cardio for years, but never got anywhere significant. It turns out that her aortic root (where your aorta attaches to your heart) is only about half the size that it would normally be.

Then you get someone like Randy Couture... that at 185 pounds weigh-in (probably 200 fighting) can keep it coming the entire time.
