If you’ve been following me for a while you’ve heard me talk about the 5 Components of Fitness. They are the FIVE aspects of fitness that need to be addressed in order to create truly fit and well-rounded body, and they are:
- Cardiovascular Fitness (AKA “Cardio”)
- Muscular Strength
- Muscular Endurance
- Body Composition
I talk a ton about strength training. In particular, I am most often referring to number 2 above, which addresses the category of strength. The reason strength training is so important is because it is literally the foundation to everything that you do and it influences every other component on the list above.
“Cardio” is the other component and fitness activity that gets tons of airtime, and rightfully so. Cardio is important for promoting heart health, improving fitness and burning fat.
The problem is that many people lean on cardio for “burning fat” and the truth is, that’s the last reason to do cardio. In fact, most people are doing too much cardio at totally ineffective intensity levels.
So this week we are talking about what happens to your body when you all you do it cardio to get in shape!
