biking is a great calorie burner. I also like any tape that has dancing - all types: latin, belly, cultural (polynesian, african ), jazz... all types are fun.

I'm the same way. I like variety, plus most of the videos don't do anything for me unless I do them 3-4 times in a row.
I like the Tae-Bo tapes, I also run on my treadmill while watching TV and ride and do volleyball, volleyball doubles in the sand is a great workout - if you play!
Usually I try to mix the spark videos with Tae-bo, Cindy Crawford and some other tapes that I have. I hate doing the same thing everyday.

It would be cool to get a running list of creative cardio workouts, especially since we're supposed to be doing it five days a week. What do you like to do for your cardio? What would you like to get into? What do you do that's kind of out of the ordinary?

I love biking. I live in a really bike friendly city with plenty of exclusive bike paths. I live about a mile and a half from the grocery store, so when I only have to pick up a few things, it's an easy way to get 20 minutes of cardio in.

Mowing the lawn. Leave the grass to grow a few weeks, and I've got a good half hour to an hour of sweating to the grass seed.

Videos. I can't just fix up a workout routine and do it. I like having someone to follow, and I especially like when they're set to music. I just found the Exercise TV channel on Comcast On Demand. Today I did a "Dorm Room Workout" for 35 minutes, and whew, it was killer. If anyone has any suggestions for online workout or dance videos, I like variety :)

I just started doing yoga. I know it's not really high impact cardio, but I can still log it, so it's on the list. I'm trying to build a bookmarks list of routines. I find it really relaxing when someone tells you when to breathe.

I used to run cross country in junior high, but haven't done distance running in probably 10 years. I'd really like to do a 5k this year, so I've started running once a week. My lungs give out before the rest of my body does.

Ok, you go.
