first off, you're a jerk, i don't want to be kidnapped, if i wanted my words on 4chan i'd post them there myself
and i'll try to meet you in the middle here,
cardio is better for slimming down, it is faster and more efficient.
strength training is better for overall fitness in the long run.
this is proven, this is known, it's not even a debate. it's the way it is.
i was trying to avoid the semantics and make this as simple as possible to understand, but if you still don't, i'd be more than happy to get technical.
ALSO, i'm not afraid of strength training, i've done it plenty, i have no issues with it, i actually had to take a workshop on it when getting my assistant coach badge. i wasn't going to say anything at all but i found it incredibly annoying that you were actually discouraging people from doing what they were doing and wanted to do just because you read about fitness on 4chan and it worked for you, which is great and awesome and dandy but not everyone wants to do 200 squats and pullups a day
nothing wrong with cardio
