    Hey guys I do cardio twice a day...figured I'd lay out my routine to find out if one was better than the other, I realize that some of these figures will vary from elliptical to elliptical but give me the best guestimates that you can...

    This first workout is my morning workout and I base it on distance
    Workout 1: 6:20 AM
    Distance 0-125 at level 2 resistance and 60+rpm
    Distance 125-175 at level 2 and 100+rpm
    Distance 175 to 300 at level 2 and 60+rpm
    Distance 300 to 400 at level 2 and 100+ rpm
    Distance 400 to 500 at level 2 and 60+ rpm
    Distance 500 to 600 at level 4 and 85+ rpm
    Distance 600 to 700 at level 3 and 85+ rpm
    Distance 700 to 750 at level 2 and 60+ rpm
    Distance 750 to 800 at level 3 and in reverse 75+ rpm
    Distance 800 to 850 at level 2 and 60+ rpm
    Distance 850 to 900 at level 3 and 85+ rpm
    Distance 900 to 1000 at level 4 and 80+ rpm
    Distance 1000 to 1085 at level 5 and 80+ rpm
    Distance 1085 to 1175 at level 4 and 80+ rpm
    Distance 1175 to 1200 at level 3 and 80+ rpm
    Distance 1200 to 1250 at level 3 and 60+ rpm
    Distance 1250 to 1280 at level 3 and 50 + rpm
    Distance 1280 to 1340 at level 2 and 40+ rpm
    Total time 19:00 mins

    Evening workout based on time
    Time 0 to 3 mins level 2 at 60+ rpm
    3 to 4 mins level 2 at 100+ rpm
    4 to 6 mins level 3 at 60+ rpm
    6 to 7 mins level 3 at 90+ rpm
    7 to 9 mins level 3 at 60+ rpm
    9 to 10 mins level 3 at 90+ rpm
    10 to 12 mins level 4 at 60+ rpm
    12 to 13 mins level 4 at 85+ rpm
    13 to 15 mins level 4 at 60+ rpm
    15 to 16 mins level 3 at 90+ rpm
    16 to 17 mins level 3 at 60+ rpm
    17 to 18 mins level 3 at 55+ rpm
    18 to 19 mins level 2 at 50+ rpm

    Total time 19 mins...

    Thoughts? Either one better htan the other? How important is resistance?
