What is more important to ones fitness program, building strength or aerobic capacity?
I believe it’s most important to find the proper balance between both strength training and aerobic capacity.
We all know people that limit themselves to cardio and others that only lift weights but it’s those that find the middle ground that achieve the most results.
For me it’s always been a no brainer, I’d rather lift weights than do anything else.
In fact one could say that I have a love hate relationship with cardio, most of the time I hate doing it but I love the results I get when I include it in my routine.
For that reason alone I’ve come to realize that cardio needs to be a major part of my training program whether I like it or not. There is no doubt in my mind that adding the right amount of cardiovascular training has taken me to the next level.
The problem is that most people tend to gravitate toward what they’re good at and shy away from things they find harder.
I think it’s important to remember that too much of anything is never a good idea.
We all have our preferences but if results are what were after balancing strength training and aerobic training is the ticket to success.
