The new recommendation is either to work out for an hour a day or take 10,000 steps. Would you get the same benefit from walking 10,000 steps? I thought you needed to raise your heart rate to get cardio benefit. I can understand that 10,000 steps is better than nothing, and it does burn calories but how does that compare to say, half an hour of cardio and half an hour of lifting? I probably do walk 10,000 steps a day, but I still need to work out. Does anyone understand the recommendation better?
