Hey everyone, I just wanted to say that I all I do now is squat, benchpress, and deadlift and I've been the leanest I've ever been in my life with adding body weight

    I'm not a fan of the either/or mentality myself. I do Zumba, running and Body Pump (a weight lifting class). It's a nice mix of cardio and strength training for me. Different strokes for different folks!

    Just to add my two cents, for some of us doing cardio is beneficial for not just the reasons noted above but it can really help with ones mental state. So maybe you could actually benefit from doing some and by the way I haven't done in a while :|

    I ran to the gym to do strength work, no Zumba required. You okay with that!

    I always thought it was important to hit on flexibility, strength, and endurance in your workout routine. If your goal is overall health and fitness, then cardio definitely has a place in your routine. It's about balance.

    But Zumba is my cardio/twerk class. I'm not giving that up!

    CLICKBAIT. And not very good clickbait at that. Makes other weightlifters (like myself) look bad. Besides, Zumba looks fun; can just never get to the class at my local gym.
