Head into today's cardio session with a positive mindset. It's true that these two weeks have a strength focus, but without additional cardio the likelihood of becoming both strong and lean is slim. Plus, endurance is important for athletic performance. Without a good aerobic base, how are you going to make it through that game of touch football or run bases without getting winded?
Whether you consider cardio a bane or blessing, know one thing for sure: It's necessary. Get after it with everything you've got!
