Is cardio fitness or strength training more important?


Most people tend to divide fitness into this or that.

Exercise is exercise.


Any form of movement raises one’s heart rate.

Any form.

So when someone is doing yoga , pilates and any form of movement that is also a cardiovascular exercise.

Then one exercise can be divided into aerobic and anaerobic.

Basically, in a very simplistic way when an exercise gets very hard the body moves from aerobic to anaerobic.

Anaerobic is that kind of exercise that you can not sustain for more than a minute without agony.

So next time someone asks you do you do cardio?

You always , always answer, YES.

The old paradox of fitness.
