Let's chat about cardio, but not the kind that has you zoning out on the treadmill while binge-watching your favourite series. I'm looking at you, gym zombies who think a long, leisurely stroll on the elliptical counts as a hardcore workout. Spoiler alert: if your cardio feels like a walk in the park, you might be missing the mark.
Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not knocking your beloved aerobics or pump classes. But let's face it, if you're spending 45 minutes or more in a steady state of cardio 5 days a week, dreaming of shedding some body fat, it's time for a reality check. Endless long-distance running could turn you into a lean, mean, muscle-losing machine, and that's not the goal, right?
