If there’s one form of exercise that numbs my skull, it’s cardio.
Turns out, I’m 100% justified in hating cardio.
TL;DW (too long; didn’t watch)
Stop wasting your time on cardio.
Cardio is the bane of my fitness for 3 simple reasons.
- I get bored
- It takes to long
- I don’t see results quick enough

Beyond my personal frustrations, cardio is slowly killing you because:
- Cardio doesn’t burn the right kind of fat
- Cardio breaks down your muscles
- Cardio doesn’t burn calories throughout the day
Strength training (stuff like lifting weights and HIIT) has the opposite effect:
- Burns the worst kind of fat
- Builds muscles
- Burns calories throughout the day
