Cardio Aerobics is Counter Productive to your Health
Most people think that running on treadmill or doing “Cardio” aerobics is good for losing weight and for improving health. This may be true to a degree, but new scientific evidence suggests that this approach is becoming outdated and that “Cardio” exercise could actually be detrimental to your metabolism and that there are better ways to lose weight and improve your health.
Six Reasons Why Aerobic Work is Counterproductive by Keith Alpert, Strength Coach from Boston
- Continuous aerobic work plateaus after 8 weeks of training so anything more is counterproductive.
- Aerobic training worsens power locally and systemically Ã¢â‚¬â€œ in other words, it can make you slower.
- Aerobic training increases oxidative stress which can accelerate aging.
- Aerobic training increases adrenal stress which can make you fatter and produce other undesirable health consequences
- Aerobic training increases body fat in stressed individuals by contributing additional stress.
- Aerobic training worsens testosterone/cortisol ratio which impedes your ability to add fat burning lean muscle.
