It seems like there are two types of people, people who lift weights and people who do cardio, but which one is better. It’s a question that’s been jogging people’s minds forever, which is why most people do both.
If you ask a bodybuilder to answer this question, he or she will tell you that you don’t need cardio to build muscle. Except that if you’re overweight, chances are that you will bulk up without losing any weight, which is why you need cardio.
Cardio helps with calorie loss, but you need weights to build lean muscle tissue, otherwise, if you just do cardio, you’ll be left looking soft and skinny fat. If you want that toned look, then you better start picking up some dumbbells.
