Think ‘cardio’ is just running…elliptical…stationary bike…etc.?
You have options. It’s just important to understand that any activity you do
is cardio. In other words if your heart is still working and pumping blood…
you’re doing cardio.
Also, cardio in a workout setting, i.e. gym, is interchangeable with aerobic or endurance training.
Keeping your heart rate under anaerobic threshold is where you want to be to accumulate the

Keep aerobic work simple and more importantly…do what you enjoy.
