Cardio Fails - Find out what is 18x's better

PS - My anti-cardio stance gets a lot of hate mail...
...and I understand why. 
So many people have dedicated hours, months, and even years to cardio hoping it will transform their body...only to be disappointed.
But there is a better way to exercise, and better ways to transform your body. Find out how on the blog here:

I understand the effectiveness of weight training and interval training in fat loss programs. But the anti-cardio side is getting dogmatic. Cardio has it's place in fitness programs, even though it might not bring results to 100% of the population when done in isolation. I have seen morbidly obese people lose hundreds of pounds just running.

The boost metabolism it's important to use all different energy systems. It's not either one or the other. This maximises the amount of work that can be put into a fitness program without overtraining.

i still say the only use for cardio is bodybuilders and restoration. Im kind of suprrised you would have a morbidly obese person running as well.

I am not a trainer so I don't have anyone running. I don't think it's a good idea to run when you are morbidly obese, because of the pounding on the joints. But some people still choose to do it and get results. That proofs cardio is not ineffective at all times.

I myself have lost a lot of weight just riding on my bicycle for 25 km a few times per week when I started out training. I lost my first 30 pounds just doing that. I have heard a story from the gym owner who had a friend who lost a 100 pounds riding his bicycle everyday.

It's all about progression. If you always train at the same intensity or volume you are not going to see results. No matter what you are doing, lifting weights, HIIT or steady state cardio.

I am defending cardio here, not because I love doing it so much. But I have seen it to be effective with myself and other people who have sticked with it. Interval type training is of course much more fun than hanging on machine for an houre. But it's silly to say that cardio doesn't work.
