"Cardio Only" Does Not Work!

One goal most exercise enthusiasts have is optimal body composition. That is, we want to keep our % of body fat low and our % of lean muscle/fat-free mass high. While I encounter it more with females, there are still way too many people who want to lose weight only doing "cardio." They'll hop on the elliptical for hours and leave the gym a sweaty mess thinking they have done a good thing.

The best way to burn fat and increase lean muscle is a comprehensive program of strength training, interval conditioning, and a nutrition plan that contains plenty of good fat, lean protein, and complex, fibrous carbohydrates.
