Which is more important cardio or strength training?
It depends on what you mean by ‘weight loss’. There are a lot of people who always raise this question. These two modes of exercises have different outcomes and results. Let us have a look.
Cardio is always best for weight loss as it burns more calories than strength training. Doing cardio in a day removes all excess fat and water from your body.
Running, skipping, aerobics or dance are examples of doing a good cardio session. But by doing so much cardio, it will start to weaken your muscles.
So to strengthen those muscles, weight training is required too for the body. Weight training is as necessary as doing cardio. It will not only give overall strength to your body but also builds up your stamina too.
Muscle gain is always an outcome to this. Good strength and muscle tone are essential for functional living and health.
Most of the trainers will suggest you to do the both and actually by combining both of these in your workout will have a great result too.
Both have their own benefits and outcomes but it is always recommend to focus on both of these exercises.
