What's the best type of cardio? 

I honestly don't think there is one type that is best; the key is consistency and changing it up to keep your body adapting.  Find something or multiple things you like doing in and out of the gym, change the amount of time you do it for, the intensity, incline, throw in some HIIT and make sure it's regular. 

It doesn't have to be every day but it should amount to 2 ½ hours of moderate or 1 ¼ hours intense (or an equivalent mix) exercise per week according to the National Academy of Sports Medicine.  - Eve Dawes
