MY Cardio Routine/Warm-up

Well i do this religiously every day im at the gym, personally i dont see the point in running on a treadmill/X-trainer for half an hour, feels too easy and doesnt feel like ive done a great deal, i tend to do 10mins full body cardio
So 1st set
Full Burpees x10
Hill Climber x10 (count for 3 = 1 rep)
Double Pump Sqauts x10
repeat till 100 reps completed
Rest 30 secs ish
Leg Raises (Drawing a V so it works you obliques too) x 10
Dive Bombers x10
Led Down Towel Rows x10
Aligator Pushups
Jumping Lunges x10
200 reps total
Then On to the Chin Up Bar, all sets to failure or negatives when tired
WideGrip Negatives (cant do them yet)
this is just my basic cardio/warm up i do vary the excersises but i dont use treadmills or X-trainers, i do alot of walking everyday with the dog so i dont want to go and run on a treadmill, plus by the time im finished i have worked up a good sweat, feel like ive burned alot more calories + bodyfat and i am then ready to hit the weights
any thoughts are welcome

    I'm with you re then tread mill, can't see the point myself, unless of course if it's pishing down outside, however I'd be more inclined to do any cardio work after weight training, dispense with the ATP first using weights and cardio from there on in, as long as it is more HIIT based, is bang in the fat burning zone ;)
