Why cardio is essential to your health

Although there is much debate about when cardio should be done, there is no debate about whether or not cardio is actually good for you. You should do cardio at least twice a week to complement your workout, considering you are in good medical condition to do so. If you are not doing cardio at all, you are making a mistake. That’s not to say you have to do cardio for an hour each time; as long as you get moving and do something that will get your heart rate up, you will reap the long-term benefits.
