Cardio verses strength training

Posted on September 25, 2017 at 6:57 am

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle requires a combination of a good balanced diet with a regular exercise regime. Exercise can vary, depending on the individual and their own personal goals.

Before you can follow a good fitness regime, you have to know what your primary goals are. Your goals could be weight loss, muscle building, flexibility or stamina. With a clear goal in mind you can work out what exercises will work best for you to achieve your goals.

For weight loss, high intensity training and cardio workouts work best for fat burning, while weights and core exercises will help improve muscle building. Yoga or Pilates can help improve flexibility, while long distance running and cycling will be sure to increase your stamina.

That said, you are not tied to one area of exercising. You can do a little of all groups whilst doing your goal exercises at a higher frequency in one week.
