Title: Cardio is a Joke
Tis' the season for cardio horror stories.
One woman wrote, "I started out doing 5 hours of cardio per week. No
results. So I upped it to 7 hours per week. Still nothing. Do you
suggest I do more? I'm worried if I use your program, I won't get
any results because you don't even have an hour of interval cardio
per week. Please help!"
And from a gentleman on the Men's Health forum, "I took up running
and didn't take up stretching until it was almost to late and
almost destroyed a knee. What happened was that my IT bands got
really tight and my inner quads didn't gain any strength so my knee
cap got pulled out of place. I had an MRI done on my knee and have
found that my knee cap has bruised my femur. "
Cardio horror stories are a dime-a-dozen. Here's the bottom line on cardio...
Long slow aerobic training remains the biggest practical joke in
fitness. Marathon running for the average overweight person? Why
don't you just tell someone to go play in traffic...oh wait, that's
exactly what they are doing - all while crushing their joints with
excess weight and repetitive pounding.
If you do long, slow cardio, it’s only a matter of time before you
end up in a physiotherapist's office with all the others that do
too much of the same thing...whether it’s running or spin classes,
overuse injuries are far too common in the cardio world.
After all, what's easier to overdo, total body strength training
done 3 times per week for 20 minutes, or the same cardio activity
done for 6-9 hours per week?
Heck, I once knew a physiotherapist who was so addicted to spin
classes that she had overuse injuries that prevented her from
walking normally! Physio, heal thyself!
What a joke that cardio is...
But cardio fits our "more is better" mentality, doesn't it? We go
right from a 3000 calorie meal at the Outback Steakhouse to our 60
minute cardio confessional sessions on the elliptical. More, more,
more, more. And yet get less results? There is a better way.
Take a peek at the weight room when you are in a gym. Then compare
the bodies there to the bodies on the elliptical. You'll find the
sculpted, toned physiques lifting dumbbells and doing pushups, and
the plump, "never changing physiques" spinning their tires over on
the cardio equipment.
No matter what the city, no matter where the gym, it’s the same old story.
Burn fat, get lean, and boost your metabolism with resistance
training. Finish with short interval training or even bodyweight
circuits (described in my DB-BW Fusion TT Workout Bonus) and you
are off to the fat burning races.
