A Case Against Cardio

Since I’ve been walking more, and working out less,  I am interested in exploring alternative approaches to exercise and fitness.  I have been checking out some of the data on Crossfit, MovNat, and Paleo systems. 

Here’s a real good case for gaining more by doing less:
“Unfortunately, the popular wisdom of the past 40 years – that we would all be better off doing 45 minutes to an hour a day of intense aerobic activity – has created a generation of overtrained, underfit, immune-compromised exerholics. Hate to say it, but we weren’t meant to aerobicize at the chronic and sustained high intensities that so many people choose to do these days”
