We all know cardio is essential to our fitness routines. But doing too much cardio can leave your workout routine in a rut.

Cardio workouts in moderation are great for your heart and lungs and burning up excess calories. But if you really want to bust up the fat in your body, you need to add strength training to your routine. Building up muscle strength is key to burning off fat.

Balance your workouts with no more than 30 minutes of cardio and add strength training at least three times a week. Don’t forget stretching and flexibility exercises. You will see greater results.
