cardio is the true measure of fitness. i am reminded each yr when the teachers from our area play the cops and firemen in a charity fundraiser. all the teachers are cardio nuts- runners, 5k 10k 1/2 maqrathoners, bikers, 2 cross fit addicts. the cops and firemen are typically weightlifters (no neck barrel chests). teachers win each yr by about 30 points and arent even tired of the game. cops and firemen (especially) look like they need emergency services lol

A good friend of mine went to a high school that had a extremely competitive swim team. I believe that one year, both the swim team and the football team were state champions. Apparently, the had an unofficial flag football game, swim team vs the football team, the swim team won by a landslide.

Cardio may not be the most direct way to getting "ripped", but not everyone cares about getting ripped. I do cardio for the endurance factor because I don't wish to be inhibited of any enjoyment of life (whether that means stomping around a massive slough all day rabbit hunting, going deep in the woods for a deer hunt, hiking in the mountains, riding bike trails.... having a 3some \:D ... or what have you ) because of a lack of endurance. Endurance is critical.

i agree. i like to know if i break down in my car i can run home. i like to know if i want to squirrel hunt from my house to my family farm how , i can cover the 3 or so miles on foot. i like to be able to drag deer out without a fourwheeler. it doesnt matter big your "guns" are, they are useless if your heart and lungs cant supply the oxygen

Let me put it another way. The point I was getting across is you can't out-run a bad diet, and you can't run your beer gut off if you aren't addressing the fuel you feed your body.

I've been there, I've spent 90 minutes on the elliptical 4-6 days per week and would up frustrated that the spare tire and love handles simply were not going away. It wasn't until I fixed my food that they went away.

I just hate seeing other people work really hard and put in a lot of miles only to be disappointed when they don't get the results they were looking for. It sucks. And as much as I like the endurance, I also don't like looking like I am 6 months pregnant, lol.
