    Played a full game today of intramural...I haven't played in a few months, but it was the best cardio I've done for a while. The most important part of cardio is having fun. Running, swimming, elliptical, rowing, just don't do it for me :run:

    i agree. are you playing road hockey or like shinny?

    i love hockey and play alot during the year. I have 2 games a week and it is good cardio for sure. High intensity, and alot of fun. i always get off the ice drenched in sweat :bigthumb:

    i have a passion for the sport i just love stepping onto the rink and dropping the shoulder into a few guys... ugh this is making me want to play

    yeah shinny, basically helmet, gloves, and shins

    no hitting though. which is okay because I wouldn't want to crack skulls and break people in half :hsugh:

    Its pretty much the only physical activity that I enjoy. My season ended 3 weeks ago and I'm starting to go insane from missing it. :wtc:

    whatever sport you like is best. basketball is my cardio twice a week, i force myself to do elliptical for 20 minutes two other days just so i dont burn out from all the ball while im cutting since its more intense than anything else the way i play(imagine ron artest on defense with rip hamilton on offense, not that good but thats how i play, always in someones face and always moving/cutting/setting screens).

    it might just be me but i find hockey to be more anarobic than traditional cardio :dunno:

    I find im fighting my lactic acid system more than the CV system when i play hockey..

    You don't go hard enough when you are on the ice then.

    Let's be honest, you're an Australian, you don't know anything about hockey. :rofl:

    Why did this make me crack up...


    shinny

    The name is derived from the Irish game shinty. Shinny hockey, a primarily Canadian term, is usually called Scrimmage or Pick-up Hockey in the United States.


    Has nothing to do with your shins haha...

    I thought the criteria was "fun". I'd rather shave my asshair with a lawnmower blade than run for pleasure.
