Use, misuse and abuse of cardio.

There's an article that's been bouncing around the fitness world for years now titled "The Cardio Myth." It sums up well how long, slow hours of cardio aren't going to make for rippling abs or a perfect butt. This weeks Paleo-Performance minute is about this topic, and about training to your goals. If your goal is a marathon, or to hike a 14'er or do Ride the Rockies then some longer cardio is likely in order. However, if your goals are to lose weight, build muscle and get stronger, or have a nicer butt/pecs/legs/insert body part(s) of choice here, then get thee to the weight room and lift some heavy stuff.
