Description

The Great Cardio Myth uncovers the science behind cardio and why, despite popular belief, it is an ineffective workout for weight loss and overall health.

Today, we are heavier and more out of shape than ever—and likely suffering from overuse injuries incurred from years of prolonged cardio exercise. New research is showing that long cardio and endurance workouts do not get us slimmer or stronger. They do not promote longevity or protect against heart disease. In fact, they may do the opposite by putting excessive strain on our heart, joints, and muscles and slow our metabolism.

The Great Cardio Myth will show you how to get the same or better fitness results in one-fifth the time of a typical cardio session and debunk unproductive exercise habits.

With The Great Cardio Myth you will learn to:

  • Lose weight (and keep it off) in just a few short workouts per week.
  • Keep your metabolism active for hours after a workout.
  • Strengthen and protect your heart, joints, and muscles.
  • Burn through belly fat—and other stubborn areas quickly
