Why do we centre our personal training on strength and not cardio? Without going down a rabbit hole let us just explain it this way:
“If you exercise with weak muscles you have weak workouts”
Your exercise might “feel” difficult and challenging but that may only be the result of weakness. Physical exertion feels tough when you are weak and the thing is cardio won’t make you stronger. You will just keep repeating weak workouts over and over.
As we move through our 30’s we begin to lose all strength which we don’t use regularly. No amount of cardio activity will change this. As your engines diminish so does the entire overall effect of exercise. Things still feel tough if you try hard but the positive benefits disappear.
In the modern world strength training is medicine. It preserves our general function and the ability to get healthy through exercise. Careful intensity based resistance exercise is the single most important key to being in shape.
