Usually an easy hike around the AZ mountains, an easy bike ride for a few miles, walking my dog on an extended walk or just shooting hoops to get some sunshine.
My cardio typically is done on days 2 - 4 - 6 and is usually in sprint or circuit training fashion lasting no more then 20-30 minutes at the max and can be as little as 8-12 minutes based on the type of workout that is completed.
Each day also starts with some foam rolling usually between 5 - 15 minutes as well as a dynamic warm up based on the movement patterns for the day.
I like to use the stability ball for variations, I always find new ways to keep challenging my abdominals.
I also use lots of cable exercises, hanging exercises, floor exercises, bench, etc...
Rep range varies a lot, sometimes 10,12,15 reps sometimes 25 to 50 reps.
I can do a circuit of exercises with 3 to 4 different variations, 10 reps of each from 4 to 8 sets! Depends on how I feel. My goal during training is the quality of the movement followed with the mental connection between the muscle that is working. I am a big believer in quality rather than quantity.

Interview with Kimberly: CutAndJacked-Interview-Kimberly-De-Jesus-Alfonso
Cardio – The amount of cardio I do will vary based on my goals. When I am in prep for competition or just trying to lean out, my cardio can range anywhere from 40-80 minutes a day, 4 - 5 days a week. When I am not in prep, I try to keep my cardio to a minimum so I can focus more on maximizing muscle gains. At that time, I typically only do around 30 minutes, 3 days a week.
Interview with Megan: Cutandjacked.com/CutAndJacked-Interview-Megan-Donnelson-Jensen
I do cardio 5 - 6 times a week on-season,
off-season I don’t do any cardio work at all.
