    Or just unneccesary? I had so much fun today doing a Turbo Jam video with some of my friends. It's like dancing and kick boxing together! lol


    I still have 30 lbs to lose, so is cardio going to help the process along, or hinder it in some way?


    I'm also weight lifting once a week and practicing yoga once a week.

    The more I see the less I know for sure.

    Excessive cardio is bad, but if it's something fun and you don't do it every single day, wearing yourself out completely, I'd say there's nothing wrong with it.


    I'm thinking of taking up running again, a few days a week. I miss it.

    You had fun doing it so keep it up. Its cardio like running for over an hour that can be very stressful on the body.

    Unless it really gets to be chronic, I think it's beneficial. Cardio builds endurance and endurance can help you in sprints and weightlifting and for energy for life in general. The cardio should be heavy though and get you sweating hard.

    I think I'd like to give it a try. I really need to find something to get my butt moving again.

    If your experience is closer to fun than to work, then it probably isn't all that bad for you and you should continue doing so. When you start staring at the clock every few minutes then it might be time to reconsider what you are doing.

    BlazeKING, I was sweating a TON. It was kind of shocking actually! lol


    Diana, try it! If you like to dance and like to punch and kick to rockin' music, you'll like it.


    I agree mstrudle, when it's torture, WTH is the point!?!

    I don't think you would ever have to worry about too much stress on your body in an hour workout. Remember, that there were certainly days a primal person would have been on the move all day. The chronic cardio thing is more of an issue for more extreme training. For what most people are doing in a day, I think the point is more that it isn't necessary to push yourself in an extreme way. It's always going to be important to keep your heart conditioned with regular cardio so great for you that you found another workout that you enjoy. Sounds like it also meets the "play" criteria. What more could you ask for?
