What does /fit/ think about cardio?

Is it worth doing, or is cardio a waste of time?
>>
>>35168366
worth it 100%.
>you get healthy as fuck
>you burn more calories
>you can eat more

I generally lift in the morn and run in the night,leaving a full day for rest.
>>
>>35168373
Only lazy neckbeards deny this.
>>
cardio is worth it if you want to lose muscle and look like a puny little twig
>>
For the health benefits mostly. It does burn calories but Im bulking so I dont need the extra cals.
>>
>>35168366
>>35168366
>what do you think about heart health/overall fitness?

more important than lifting, but i lift for health...

aerobics are the shit... i like kickboxing drills
jumping jacks, high knees, and jumping lunges are neat too
basically any HIIT you can do in front of the TV is fine by me
>>
it's worth. helps your body in countless ways. do it. don't fall for the "cardio kills gains" meme and don't be lazy. just make sure you eat the calories you spent doing it if you're worried about maintaining or bulking.

The only cardio worth doing is swimming.

Everything else is shit tier:
>cycling
>running
>sex
>yoga
>soccer
>tennis
>any other lanky type sport
>>
>>35168403
>le cardio kills gains meme
literally only if you are in a hypocaloric state, and are doing hours of intense cardio every day.

..aesthetic physiques are designed for functionality and athleticism... not sedentary laziness
>>
>>35168445
sex is best cardio, and swimming is literally as shitty as cycling.

everything else you listed i agree with, though.
>>
>>35168445
The best cardio you can do is intervals, preferably up a hill.

>>
>>35168461
How can you even compare swimming to cycling? Swimming actually gives you some gains,all you have to do is eat to make up for lost calories.
>>
>>35168445
>sex
I have no GF, so does fapping count as the same thing?
>>
>>35168479
Only if you thrust while jacking off.
>>
>>35168478
>Swimming actually gives you some gains
tiny delt gains, maybe.

ask quadzilla what cycling does for leg gains.

either way, both forms of cardio are literally garbage-tier.

>>35168479
depends on intensity, but probably not.

sex is generally a fullbody exercise, and thus burns more calories.
>>
>>35168489
what about when you fuck standing up?

shit burns way more kcals, tbhfam
>>
>>35168366
Makes you feel great.

If you truly want to become a fine physical specimen, you gotta be able to run for a bit.

>Implying that swimming doesn't work out legs too

Swimming isn't shit-tier if you do it right. Why do you think we have swimming threads once in a while on /fit/?

Whatever you say faggot.

>I have a 1.6 chest/waist ratio
>Cannonball shoulders
> Taller than what I was projected to grow

I have pretty good genes, but swimming accentuated my upper body.
>>
is fucking a fleshlight considered to be good cardio?
>>
>>35168532
>using cardio for hypertrophic gains
uh... do you even lift?
>>
>>35168532
>I built a huge massive chest and shoulders just from swimming!
Pics?

>>35168535
check your heart rate to measure cardio intensity,
>>
>>35168546
Maybe, who knows, I've been swimming since I was like 9.

>>35168559
I never claimed they were massive, but they definitely are good. If thread doesn't 404 by the time I get home I'll post.
