There is a myth in the gym world that doing tons of cardio is the key to losing weight and transforming your body. This is the furthest thing from the truth. I have seen the same individuals year after year spending considerable time on cardio machines to either gain more weight or look exactly the same. Could it be that their body has adapted to the particular piece of cardio equipment? The truth is doing long cardio sessions does burn X amount of calories and that’s about it.
