Exercising for Health?


#1

Coach Thibaudeau,

You have written extensively on how to exercise for mass, strength, and power; and also quite a bit on how to eat for both function and health. However, I haven't read much from you regarding exercising for cardiovascular health.

For example, I have always had a very naturally low bodyfat and have not concerned myself with doing much in the way of cardio and instead focused primarily on weightlifting. However, I have started to wonder if I should add some low intensity jogging to promote cardiovascular health.

Do you have any sort of protocol regarding exercising for general health while not impacting your performance and bodybuilding goals significantly?
