Are Weight Lifting and Cardio a Waste of Time?
Is cardio getting in the way of your fat loss goals?
And do we really need things to be a struggle in order to prove that we’re smart, special, or strong?
Dr. John Jaquish is a scientist, inventor, and author of Weight Lifting is a Waste of Time: So is Cardio, and There’s a Better Way to Have the Body You Want. He’s very outspoken about how the fitness industry is a failure, and he believes he has the scientific data to back up his claims.
He invented the X3 home fitness product which can fit in a bag. He claims that, along with an unconventional diet, by using this thing for only 10 minutes a day you can have the body of someone who spends hours in the gym every week.
Full disclosure: I don’t own the X3 product at this time, and I was not compensated in any way for conducting this interview.
