Cardio or Strength Training?

Do You Prefer Cardio or Strength Training?

Everyone has a favorite workout routine, that's for sure. For some, that consists of cardio, like running or cycling, and for others, it's all about strength training — hello, kettlebells! We know each has its benefits (strength training burns more fat! Cardio kills more stress!), but the debate over which is better may never end.

We want to know: when it comes to getting the body you want, do you prefer to break a sweat on the treadmill or reach for the dumbbells? Shout it out by taking our poll or commenting below!

I love strength training. Nothing like the feeling after you've completed a good routine of hitting the weights.Kettlebells are a great way to get in some strength and cardio training.

Cardio is just so much more fun to me because I can lose myself in a good song and not really think about what I'm doing. Strength training takes way more focus and I'm too aware of each movement.
