lifting without much rest between sets and exercises will keep you breathing hard but i dont think you'll be able to keep your cardio exactly where you'd like it. just try speeding up your exercise time while not cutting anything out. it'll make you go faster and keep your breathing heavy.

depending on where you lift, there are machines that work cardio by using your arms. It's like a bike but instead you pedal with your arms. It gives a good workout and all that, and you don't need a foot to do it.

Swimming is a good way.

Also, use the eliptical machine; stop if it hurts too much.

i didnt mention swimming because i'm not sure if the guy has a cast or whatnot. but if he doesn't, that would be THE best way to keep his cardio up.

You can also try the sauna. It raises your heart rate and is just like cardio.I heard this from wikipedia searching "sauna." Im a wrestler so Im in there often.

he's right. swimming is a great workout. so if you have access to a pool that should keep you in shape.
