    I increased my cardio massively by doing interval training.

    A good one is 400m, stopnand rest for 2 mins and go again for eight times as fast as you can. It works a treat however if your lungs are that fucked just jog it and perhaps extend the rest period and see how you do.

    Interval training is the way go if you can do it. Running, biking, specific movement related to your sport, or various calisthenics in intervals...

    I have NEVER gotten my judo students in to decent shape faster with less time spent than Tabata-like training.

    To the OP, good 5k running link covering all the way from couch potato to intermediate runner:

    Kovacs - completely agree with you on interval training. Saw my 5k time get hugely better after adding a set of intervals each week
