CARDIO VS. WEIGHT TRAINING
STARVING LONG DISTANCE RUNNERS
The long distance runners are a MESS, they burn their muscle and adrenals, weaken their metabolism by chronically going into glyconeogeneis, this is when your body breaks down muscle to quickly to receive a nice supply of glucose "energy/fuel" this is how the body adapts to not fall into a coma, literally.
must rely on super powerful strength for short bursts of energy output and A LOT OF RECOVERY..
A sprinter must fuel their bodies adequately with the right pre, during and post foods as well as forced recovery... otherwise the sprinting performance would be compromised!
TREADMILLS VS. INTERVAL TRAINING
This comparison applies just the same as taking a kick boxing class or doing an hour of cardio.. it only takes running up to 3 miles before you bodies energy sources become depleted.. Your metabolism slows down, your adrenal fight or flight systems become burnt out.. and you still remain flabby!
Where as interval training for example: 1 min sprints with 3-4 min recovery will help you bust your metabolism because of being able to recover before your energy systems become depleted..
OR WEIGHT TRAINING: 6- 12 rep max with 1 min of recovery as the same effect!!
