      Cardiovascular conditioning is how efficiently your circulatory system delivers oxygen and nutrients to the muscles and carbon dioxide and other metabolic wastes away from them.

      Improved cardiovascular conditioning does not mean your cardiac output is always higher. Your cardiac output only needs to be higher when your energy demands are higher, such as during weightlifting or when performing some other demanding physical activity. Improved cardiovascular conditioning means your circulatory system is capable of greater output more easily when required, largely through increases in stroke volume due to strengthening of the walls of the atria and ventricles, along with other beneficial adaptations such as increased vascularity of the heart itself, improved arterial compliance, and more efficient venous return.

      Realize your heart does not move your blood around your body by itself; respiration and muscle contraction also contribute to circulation by moving venous blood back to the heart. The majority of the veins below your heart have valves which only allow blood to move back to the heart when pressure is applied to them. When you inhale and exhale the changes in pressure in your thoracic and abdominal cavities function as a respiratory pump, moving this venous blood back towards your heart. When you contract the muscles in your arms and legs they act as a muscular pump, squeezing the veins and pushing the venous blood back towards the heart. The larger and stronger your muscles the more effectively they do this all of the time, not just during exercise.

      As long as you continue to lift weights intensely, breathe continuously and freely, and avoid Valsalva maneuver, you will still stimulate your body to improve or maintain cardiovascular efficiency.

        Only if your starting point is extremely low to begin with. To actually stimulate your cardiovascular system you need to take yourself to or nearby failure. You're not going to be able to do this flailing some dumbbells around.

    Powerfatter cope. Just lose weight you far frick. The human body is genetically designed to RUN not to be a 350lb powerfatter who gets a heart attack at 40 for being obese

      It's not. It's designed to walk. If we were meant to run we would walk on the balls of out feet like 4 legged mammals. Buts thats fine because the difference between the fastest running mile & the fastest walking mile is only a minute & 47 seconds.

        How many calories would we burn if we just walked on the balls of our feet all thw time? What would the negative side effects be? Achilles tendonitis? Or would you acclimate eventually?

          I don't think there are any negative side effects. Positive ones: Nice knees, nice calves.
          t. have avoided heel striking for 25 years (still touches ground but doesn't take impact)

            Well, he's not wrong. It's a fact that we're not made for running or atleast not well. Thats why it takes consideriable speed before we switch to striking with the balls of our feet where every other mammal that is made for running is always on the balls of their feet, with elevated heels that only ever touch the ground during rest.

      This but the opposite, running spikes your cortisol and stresses the frick out of your body, aging you prematurely

    Give it to me straight. What will build cardiovascular healthy, circulation and cut fat quicker and more effectively….a HIIT workout that consists of walking & sprinting (20 min) or 45 min of rucking?

      The ROONER autists will give you highly elaborated programs and ask you to monitor your HR while running and all that. But its much easier to simply start running and build your KMs. Track your progress every week
      Its up to you if you want to focus on distance or speed or both. The cardio gains will fix themselves, your hearth is a smart thing

        My main goals are improving circulation (recently quit smoking), and burning fat (probably mid-upper teens BF). Not looking to run any marathons. Closest thing I do in that regard are through-hikes.

    I felt this way until I tried running. I kneel before my runner overlords now. It feels amazing and the cardio gains are absolutely based in every aspect of my life. I am worried about my knees and ankles though.

    Running outside is natural. Lifting plates of metal in a concrete room covered with plastic is a crime against nature
    Humans are supposed to be lean, fast and athletic hunters. Not 300lbs fat pieces of shit who cope thinking their strength matters when they can't walk more than 10 minutes

      Counter argument, lift outside. Humanity has been lifting & building just as long. Not to justify powershitters but there is such a thing as optimal fitness & it's a balance of strength/cardio/flexibility.

      I mostly agree with you but strength and muscular endurance are part of being an athlete

        What has put & kept humanity at the top of the food chain, besides intellect, is our physical ability to adapt. Our species really is jack of all trades when it comes to fitness. However, human endurance is probabaly the most exceptional thing about us. I don't think there is a single other creature on earth that can physically exhaust themselves as much as us with so little dietary input.
