Cardio Vs. Muscular ExerciseAccording to a lot of professionals, going to the gym and running on the treadmill for an hour is considered sufficient exercise. It’s nice that these people are physically active, but just running is not exercise. Besides the fact that stomping on the treadmill is horrible for your knees, it also contributes to a concept called “skinny fat”.
Building muscle not only burns unwanted calories, but uses those calories to grow. This allows you to eat more food without getting fat because the additional calories you consume are going to your muscles (where they are needed) instead of being stored as useless fat.
