What type of insulation should I use in my walkout basement with cinder block walls?

Most of the walkout is above grade, I'm not sure if all the walls are cinder block or if there is some concrete.

Eric,
These walls should be insulated just like the walls of a basement that is below grade. This article tells you what you need to know: How to Insulate a Basement Wall.
