    Two questions. Are you eating enough calories for all this? And are you losing lean body mass? If the answer to both questions is yes, then you are definitely doing some damage.

    I have to admit, I am quite curious why you're doing this much cardio. Are you training for a race? Dropping fat?

    I've heard of people doing steady state cardio like 10x a week to get past a plateau when on a cut and that can actually work. That's a temporary thing though and I'd look at other things before resorting to that. If you always do that much cardio then what happens when you hit a plateau? You can't really increase cardio to get past it since you are already doing the max.

    this is a good question; it might also indicate that he is indeed too fat, if he trying to lose in a hurry.
