To all of you serious weight lifters and dieters out there, it may be a great idea to add in some cardio! Just remember that cardio is important.
Cardio is just as important as the weight lifting and the dieting. Maybe you are wanting to be strong to the point that you started weight lifting, but endurance built from cardio will help you increase repetitions and sets during your workouts. For the dieters, cardio is important because: If you fail at your diet on any particular day, you can simply amp up the cardio and burn off those extra calories.
Take a look at any distance runner and conditioned athlete. Just take a look at any of them. They had to do a lot of cardio to get to where they’re at. They had do a lot of conditioning and it may have taken a lot of running or swimming.
Also, as far as the running or swimming goes, you can choose to do whatever cardiovascular exercise you want. I would just recommend that you do cardio three to five times a week. It can be running, or swimming, or even walking. There are a lot of different cardiovascular exercises.
Remember, the cardio is good for your overall cardiovascular health. This means that in the ‘long run’ it’s good for your entire health. By doing cardio, your blood flow will be better which in turn is better for your major organs. It will help you lose weight, and you’ll be a well-balanced athlete.
