Advice on cardio training

i saw a thread like this, but figured the point wouldn't get across.

But i need to improve my cardio back into form and maybe even better cuz i haven't been able to play sports or anything like a used to.

Anyways, i have a stationary bike where you can, adjust the tension and stuff but it seems like it would be for more muscle training. On the 3rd tension i usually bike for like 10 mins straight, at around a pace of 16-20km/h. On pace one i can freely "bike" at 21 km/h without getting tired.

Right now i basically do withing that 10 mins. 30 secs of high speed like 30 (when on one) and 24 for another 30 and keep repeating untill the 10 mins is up.

SO the question is, can anyone give me some more advice? I also do weight lifting tho it doesn't really help my cardio...

Running and swimming, bro. That'd help a bunch. Sprinting, then jogging (this acts as your "rest"), and continuing this cycle. Freestyle a half a lap, and on the way back, do breaststroke. Should help tons.

BTW, give me your MSN, it's me Yoshi, from GzP.

Try browsing the forums a bit man, there's a million threads on this same subject and a million responses. It's getting annoying seeing the same threads over and over and over, take 15 minutes and look through everything before just posting a thread. Here's some things you can do for cardio though:

1) RUN, make sure you're mixing it up between long distance and sprints. Also try to do some incline running as well
2) Skip Rope
3) Swim
4) Grapple/Wrestle
5) Box
6) Check out

What a stud

Nothing gets me like the jump rope. Second in line is running.
