    Is medium intensity running benefical ?

    Hey, i have a question. I do weight training and i walk a lot, but i dont do any form of cardio (i dont count some hours of walking ...). I like running and i want to start running (not HIIT sprinting) but i feel boring when i do LISS with like 30 minutes of running. So my question is -> is it benefical, is it good idea to do some medium intensity running, where i run fast for like 10 minutes ? Is it good cardio ? I see everywhere HIIT sprints or LISS for 30+ mins, but dont know about 10 minutes of fast running. Thanks

    If you want to improve CV conditioning then yes it would be. Just depends if that's beneficial to you. Personally, I don't see the need, I have a low resting pulse and a general athletic ability better than the Joe average despite no formal cardio - just high rep back squats.

    Just because SuffolkPunch doesn't do cardio does not mean you should also refrain from general CV conditioning. In fact, it's quite the opposite; you SHOULD be doing moderate/vigorous cardio regularly. It will make you a much more well-rounded athlete in general, as well as improve capillary density especially in your legs.

    Just don't be a moron about it. Don't run a 10k @ 7min/mile the day before you squat. Don't run 50 miles a week and expect to squat/deadlift. I think you get the point.

    If you're worried about losing too much weight, eat a few rice cakes after your run. You only burn about 100 calories/mile, so as long as you're not going nuts on the distance, you'll be just fine from a caloric standpoint.
