Let's assume you run up hill incline on the treadmill or starmaster for 20 minutes. HR will be around (175 -179 or so for me at least). That will peak at about 7 minutes into the CV workout.

Now, lets say you take a a baseball bat and smash pumpkins for one minute straight without resting for one minute. You rest for One minute, and then continue this for another 1 minute. This is repeated 4 times. (you're heart will pound like a mother at about 170+ we know that for sure).

Now, the pumkin smashing duration is only 8 minutes excluding warmup. The starclimber is 20 minutes.

What's the difference?

A. Duration of heart rate = fat burning and increasing endurance?

B. Same thing, you're reaching a peak heart rate (smashing pumkins) in a shorter amount of time ?

C.  I don't know and I don't give a garbage............

One is an aerobic activity, (stairclimber) and the other is an anerobic activity.  (smashing pumpkins)  BTW, Are you really in Kenya???

Mizu has it on I think.. Actually I like to box but I can only go 4 one minute rounds full tilt until my lungs are on fire.

Good to mix up the aerobic and anarobic cardio up. and fool/shock the metobilsim.

(a boxer can't condition in the ring only, has to do loooong runs).

No I'm not in Kenya. But I've been there.

Scrap that bullshit. For cardio at the end of your workout either do a bodyweight circuit (ie pushup, pullup, squat ladder - 1 of each, then 2 of each, until 10+ then back down to 1) or do kettlebell swings. Do 10 minutes of kettlebell swings. It'll beat the darn out of any cardio machine, turn you into a goddamn sexual tyrannosaurus rex.

 TRex -I personally would drop 15 pounds of muscle if I did that routine rated, but that's me.  Drop set after drop set and then that?

imo don't waste your time with those trendy crossfit style cardio routines.. As you point out, they get your heart rate racing towards your max and you can't do them for more than a few mins at a time. 

If fat loss is your goal, the tried and true 30-40 mins of steady state cardio 5-6 times / week should be your bread and butter, either first thing in the morning (ie fasted before you eat any carbs) or straight after your weights training. 

I'm five and a half weeks out from my first bodybuilding competition and the above protocol has helped me get my bf down from 17% in March down to 8.7% as of yesterday (need to be around 6% by show time). 

Sure you'll have to sacrifice some size according to the tape measure (although there are some great techniques to minimise this through your diet) but you'll LOOK much bigger the leaner you are (without your shirt on, that is). At my current bf % I've got lines and cuts and veins appearing all over the place and I look far more muscular at my current weight of 78kg than I did back in January at 87kg and 22% bf. 

I guess at the end of the day it all depends what your goals are but if you want to get seriously lean - in the vicinity of single digit bodyfat levels, then the boring, consistent cardio slog is the only way to get there.

 Mixing both is key..........smashing pumpkins (great band) would have a similar effect as lifting.......short duration/high heart rate.

 Jive.........I've worked out around BB's & they say similar things. Their goal is to start 12 weeks out & cut w/o losing any muscle mass which is tough. They've said their BF goal is around 3%.............last time I saw that was HS wrestling.

Yeah it's 'horses for courses' in terms of when you start a pre contest fat loss phase, the more bf you're carrying the longer you need to give yourself. 

Not so sure about those guys who claim to be 3% bf.. At that low you're actually quite close to death. A lot of people tend to over estimate their level of leanness - you've only gotta take a look at sites like bodybuilding.com to see guys who're 'smooth' and barely have visible abs who're realistically around 15% or so but claim to be 9% or thereabouts.

Since when did bodybuilding actually become a sport?  It's not a sport.

Lifting is a supplement and a strength program for sports.  Not the other way around.

I agree with this , as Kenny Powers would say ; "I play real sports, not trying to be the best at exercising"
