Actually, because my cardio is high-intensity, I only do about 20 to 30 minutes before I go to website cool down and head over to the weights. Almost 100 percent of the time, after I am done with my full-body workout, I'll look over at the elliptical and there they are, still peddling away without one bead of sweat on their brows!
