20 Minute INDOOR WALK + RUN Workout | How Much CARDIO Do You Need?

Let’s go for a WALK + RUN while we talk about CARDIO – how much do you really NEED in your workout routine? My advice might just surprise you. 🙂  The fact is, IT DEPENDS! What kind of cardio are you doing? What are your goals? Where are you on your personal fitness journey? And what do you ENJOY doing?

First, some clarification:  there’s almost no exercise in the world that is strictly 100% cardio.  All activities that raise your heart rate are also doing some kind of muscle toning.  And all muscle toning activities are also raising your heart rate!  So, no matter what exercise you’re doing, you’re getting some benefit to your heart, lungs, muscles and bones.


If your goal is to train for some sort of cardio event (like a 5k or other running distance), then you’re going to need a LOT of cardio work to get you there.

If your goal is weight loss, you’ll need some cardio, but in much more moderate quantities than you probably think.

If your goal is to have fun and stay fit, you can pretty much do anything you like!  🙂
