    Cardio, or Real Cardio is about increasing Cardio Vascular functioning.

    What Bodybuilders and Strength Athletes call "Cardio" isn't really increasing their Cardio Vascular functioning that much. They just Walk for the Health benefits (including recovery) or to burn more Calories.


    True Cardio is when you push your Cardio Vascular system so it creates and adaptive response. Walking only does that a minimal amount.

    Cardio to me is when you're doing Hill Sprints, Rows, or Cycling and your temperature starts to increase, your Heart starts to pound. You get that Lung burn so bad that it creates that taste in your Mouth. You can literally taste the pain. You snarl and say to yourself "eat the fucken pain kunt, eat the fucken pain!" You only quit coz your afraid of causing yourself to have a Heart Attack or Stroke.


    Cardio sorts out the Men from the Boys. When lifting weights we can only endure so much Muscular pain before our form breaks down endangering our joints etc. But with Cardio you can go through the pain barrier a bit further as your joints aren't as at risk as when going through the Muscular pain barrier of lifting.


    I remember reading how Miguel Indurain Tour de France cyclist has a lung capacity of well over 7 litres. I assume other Athletes have more that that but that's pretty impressive.




    EDIT: "British rower Pete Reed has the largest lung capacity ever recorded: 11.68 litres. To put that in some perspective, Lance Armstrong’s capacity is seven litres."

    nice piece LPS. Cardio is indeed hard. went for a 3km run in 15 minutes, hard work when you pulse gets up to 180 at my age.

    Heavy weights, by comparison, is quite easy. Very little pain.
    I can't wait for Kevin Aitken to join World Powerlifting.

    The word cardio is just a term to describe doing an activity that raises the heart rate.

    How long the duration and how high the HR be maintained to maintain and improve health is specious at best
    IMO
    In this day and age we need to spend a small amount of time in the high intensity area and most of our time in the low intensity area.

    although walking is low intensity in terms of raising the HR it's the safest in terms of potential soft tissue damage.

    if you're using cardio as a means of improving health then make sure lifting is a very big part of it.

    I agree, run other day was a test at near 100% effort; most of my longer runs are 15-20min at 10km/h, with pulse around 160 all the way. Other days I walk with pulse anywhere from 120-140 (gradient around 3 degrees), depending on when i am walking and what muscle group i have just trained. Obviously leg weights before keeps my pulse higher when walking straight after.
