Strength vs. Cardio

Strength vs. Cardio

There are pro and con arguments for both strength and cardio exercise (far more pros). A specific sport might dictate the need for one over the other but for most of us strength should be the higher priority.

Between the two activities, only strength training builds lean muscle tissue. Cardio activities can actually decrease our lean muscle mass. Why does lean tissue matter? Lean tissue burns fat and calories (even when not exercising). Lean tissue protects our joints. Lean tissue gives both men and women the sexy look most are trying to achieve.

Strength training, when done properly, can burn almost as many calories as cardiovascular training, provide the same increase in heart rate, all while stimulating the muscles to change and become more shapely.

KillerFit and Kimfitpro have developed hundreds of bootcamp, circuit, kettlebell, and HIIT programs specifically designed to achieve maximal results.
