Olympic lifters are extremely strong and explosive usually averaging a 36" plus vertical jump without even specifically training for it

Marathon runners can run for a long long time, but in general average less than a 15" vertical



Now you can have somebody who is able to both be fairly strong and have enough endurance to run a marathon, but they won't be competing at any serious level for either. Probably the best athletes who are able to combine both to some degree would be Mixed Martial Artists

So yes you can have both strength and endurance, but training for one usually is detrimental to the other in terms of maximum theoretical performance for either

That's just a silly argument, granted a lot of people who go to a gym a posers, most have no idea what they are doing, others just go there to get hurt with terrible form excercise and so on. There are plenty of misinformed people who just eat up whatever silly pills and supplements to get results. Long story short you are what you eat, you cannot replace meals with supplements period and imo cardio is a must regardless of your goals, you just have to adjust the intensity and how much you do in order for it to be productive.
"Strength training 3days/week for 2hrs or less each will keep you very very strong and fit for men or women" not everyone train for the same results, and every person is different , for me that kind of workout is a waste and bear no fruits for my goals, hence why I do 4 day/week weights in routines of 1 hour and some light intensity cardio on my free days no more than 20 -30mins depending how i feel, that way I train weights 1 day on and 1 off, and a light cardio won't impact or ruin my progress on my free day after im rested. I discovered what works best for me and my goals after 10 years of training and research, there is no "standard regime" for everyone to follow, you have to set some goals, do your research, go out there and see how it goes. From there keep modifying until you are happy with it. thumb.gif

The main things that I would point out is that if you are doing your squats properly you will be out of breath for at least 3-5m after the 2nd set. So doing barbell is cardio in itself and you really don't need to do it. And I dont know your specific workout but unless your a bodybuilder I don't really know a workout where you can lift 4 days/week since DOMS lasts at least a day for me with fish oil and ibuprophen. But everyones body is different. Id just look at stronglifts.com and startingstrength because more information is always better than less. Ive done a bit of research but I look into different things unfortunately most are gimmicks for people who just want to substitute effort.

If you are using dumbbells, machines (aka leg press), or treadmills I just suggest you look into strength training in general. I don't know what you are doing exactly but if you post it Im not against looking into it because I'd like to know new things. Soft tissue was an awesome new thing to me a few years ago and I would never have guess something that looks so stupid was actually very helpful.

woah woah woah... some of the statements they're making just seem a bit extreme! Sitting increase your chances of death by 40%, sitting caused obesity to DOUBLE.... The only other people I've seen make statements this radical are religious extremist.

No doubt sitting isn't the healthiest, standing all day isn't healthy either, as with everything else, moderation is key. I'm pretty dam sure poor diet has a FAR greater impact in some of they're claims vs sitting..

"Exercise Rates stayed the same; Sitting time increased 8%; Obesity doubled"
"Recommended 30 minutes of activity is not enough" It is if intentional activity.
"Those who sit 3 hours or more watching TV per day are 64% more likely to die from heart disease"
"Each extra hour of watching TV = 11% higher death risk"
"Sitting at 135 degrees puts less strain on your back than hunching forward or even sitting straight"
Which would also cause you to not keep your lower back active, which leads to back pain.
I pulled 75% of the quotes from that ridiculous image just to point out the large amount of correlation without causation. Just... everyone. Disregard this thread.

So much of this.

This is the article's logic: "Ice cream sales have increased. Crime has increased. Therefore, ice cream sales make people commit crimes."
