The Great Cardio Myth uncovers the science behind cardio and why it is an ineffective workout for weight loss and overall health.

Is your cardio workout effective or hindering your health?

Cardio workouts have long been advised as a way to lose weight and stay healthy. But what if that isn't true? Emerging science is showing that steady state cardio on its own is not effective for weight loss and in many cases can have the opposite effect and inhibit a person's ability to lose fat. Not only can it affect your weight loss goals, it can affect your overall health, leading to reduced muscle mass, increased appetite, and is correlated to an increase in chronic disease and mortality. The Great Cardio Myth breaks down the science of cardio, why it doesn't work, and what you should be doing instead.
