Quick Tip | Why cardio alone isn't getting you the results you want
Why cardio won't get you the body you've been wanting
So you want to look and feel more athletic. What’s the first thing you do? Hop on the nearest piece of cardio equipment and get after it for hours a week? What if I told you, you’d be wasting your time.
Slow steady state cardio such as running, jogging, biking, etc. is great for fat loss. However, if your goal is actually to become more athletic, (increase muscular strength, size, and mass to become more “toned”) then slow steady state cardio isn’t your best choice.
Why you ask?
It’s simple. Endurance training increases your cardiovascular output (which is great for endurance sport) but doesn’t transfer to other strength training attributes such as putting on muscular strength, size, and mass.
So if your goals are to become stronger, leaner and more “toned”. You can still hit the cardio, but it shouldn’t be the meat and potatoes of your training program.
