Is Cardio necessary for losing body fat imageMany are still under the impression that in order to lose substantial body fat that they need to be doing hours on end of cardio. However, this isn’t the case. While it is advised that you incorporate some form of cardio within your training program, if your goal is focused on building strength, muscle and aesthetics, you will best be served by prioritizing progressive weight training.
A key thing to consider is also the type of cardio that you do. A good target to hit consistently is 10k steps per day which will burn roughly around 500kcals. What’s more within your actual sessions, you will get more bang for your buck by performing HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) cardio rather than LISS (Low-Intensity Steady State) cardio. This is because you will burn more calories in a shorter time frame and continue burning calories up to 72 hours after a bout of HIIT 💪🏼🔥
