Are you doing too much cardio?

When done properly, cardio workouts can lead to improvements in blood pressure, metabolism, overall energy, body fat, and heart and lung strength while simultaneously reducing stress, depression, anxiety, and the risk of heart disease. When done improperly, though, cardio can have negative effects on a person’s health. Individuals can cause injuries from repetitive use such as chronically sore joints, knee injuries, and shin splints.
