I love to do cardio. I like to run and sweat a lot, and I think that’s quite helpful.
I love doing a lot of cardio. It’s not so much for the way I look. It’s for how I perform. If I get in the ring with a 215-pounder, I wanna be able to keep up with him agility-wise. I take that back to my football days of being a large athlete that could move.
I do a lot of cardio. I think it’s super important, especially for women. I don’t have a tremendous amount of time to work out, so I find myself cramming in a cardio because that’s all I can fit in. I think that if you don’t have a lot of time, that it’s the cleanest way to burn a few calories.

A lot of the off-ice is actually spent sort of as a recovery process. Because the closer we get to a competition, the more and more you do on-ice. So if you’re already on the ice three to four hours, you get enough cardio doing your run-throughs. But I sometimes do the elliptical or bike.
I concentrate on making everything strong, and you can’t do that with just cardio. I strength-train one day – and I’m not talking heavy weights, just a little. I see my trainer one day, next day I take a yoga class or cook. I’m not someone who just opens a pantry and rustles something up.
I have great cardio.
I’ve always had bad posture, and Pilates makes me feel taller and reminds me to keep my shoulders back.

Cardio is king. This is how you make sure you don’t wear out in the fight.

The difference between me and Tyron Woodley is that Tyron Woodley fights nervous; he fights scared.

There’s a difference.

Everybody wants to come out here and test my cardio but I’m one of the hardest working guys in the division.

I'll do some running with the dogs, ride a bike; if I g

I graduated from high school at 165 pounds, so twice a year, I get back to that number – I never let it get to 172-73. Then I go back to doubling the cardio. This week, I’m on a complete liquid diet, a juice fast. It keeps me lean and hungry.
‘Ghazi’ has underwater stunts and was physically taxing. That added to my cardio routine.
If I’m number one in the world, it’s for a reason. People can talk about the cardio all they want, but the results show it. So people behind me, they have to have really, really bad cardio also.

I do cardio for 35 to 45 minutes, whether that’s on the elliptical or walking or running on the treadmill – I switch back and forth because I can get bored at times. Then, I’ll go do some weights – I’ll do some bicep curls, push-ups, sit-ups.
If, for example, I have a photoshoot that I need to look and feel my best for, then I give myself two weeks and that’s it.

Charlie Weber
For me, boxing’s like checkers, and MMA’s like chess – there are so many ways to win the match. It’s not barbaric; it’s boxing, kickboxing, Jiu-Jitsu, wrestling, cardio and it’s all reached such an amazing level. As fans learn more about the sport, they just fall in love with it.
My workout involves cardio, jogging, and yoga as well. I am a firm believer of yoga and meditation.

I find that the thing that makes every body look the be

I find that the thing that makes every body look the best is great toning, and really, really targeting the muscles, and low cardio, where you’re sculpting and getting your heart rate up but not beating yourself up.
I normally hit the gym five times a week. I tend to do half an hour of cardio – on the treadmill or a spin class – then head for the weights. I do a lot of core work, obviously!
I still have to work on my cardio because I get tired very quickly. At Barcelona, I have a better lifestyle. At Dortmund, I didn’t have a great lifestyle, and I didn’t get injured, so it’s not that.
At the gym, I do full-body circuits with low weights and high repetitions, as well as four or five cardio intervals thrown into the mix. I put a lot of emphasis on core strength and flexibility training. I also do a lot of running in my free time. Anytime I can move my cardio outside in the sunshine, I do.

I do cardio once in the morning or evening.
Most of the time I meet my trainer at the gym and we do a lot of everything: weights circuit with cardio, football drills, sprinting with weights on the treadmill.

Boxing, Jiu Jitsu, some good old-fashioned wrestling and plenty of cardio. You name it, it’s part of my routine.
My brain puts baths in the same category as yoga: it’d be ‘nice’ to relax for an hour, but I just want a 10-minute, high-impact workout; get in, get out. Showers are my cardio.
I do cardio. I run. I strength-train using my own body weight. I don’t like free weights, because I build muscle easily.
In the ’80s, I did two hours of cardio every day, split between running and the stationary bike. It was a trap – afterward I’d feel starving but also bulletproof, so I’d pig out. I slid into what I call exercise bulimia, when you’re running more and more miles so you can eat worse and worse food.
