    After seeing all of these recent threads speculating about Connor and his cardio, and his search for alternative forms of cross training like rowing and cycling.. I decided to share what i think is the very best form of cardio that translates better than running to mma... XC SKIING!

    Xc skiing requires a strong core, legs and arms and involves almost your whole body while at the same time adds almost zero impact on the knees..

    Also xc Skiiers have delivered some of the highest Vo2 Max results of all time..
    Higher than American Legends such as Steve Prefontaine and Lance armstrong..


    Here are some Xc skiers for people who want to look at cardio monsters..

    Cross-country skiers are among the most dubious athletes out there in terms of PED-cheating.

    You probably knew that and was being sarcastic.

    The whole point of this thread was just to show roided out chicks wasn't it? That first girl, the arms, the hands, the pecs, it all looks like a man in a dress. If she wasn't born a man she has the T levels of one.

    Cycling and cross-country skiers go well above and beyond for PED's. They typically get to the new thing first, like the blood doping. They aren't messing around with East German roids.
