The Aerobic Conspiracy

Read this excellent article today by Phil Stevens titled "The Aerobic Conspiracy", which shows just how badly out of proportion the whole cardio vs weight/resistance training argument really is.

In reality, if you could only choose one, and no doubt this all comes down to personal preference also, you would choose resistance training over cardio/running every time. A better solution would be to incorporate both into your workouts and they are both beneficial.

It's a great read and you can see it here: http://www.staleytraining.com/articles/phil-stevens/2009/aerobic-conspiracy.htm.
