Lifting weights has a greater correlation with reduction of cardiovascular risk than activities like walking, running and/or cycling. You want to be healthy? Figure out a weekly practice which builds strength.
Clearly we need a revision of terms, as the types of activities we typically label "cardio" are not as beneficial to heart health as "strength training." And what I am calling "strength training" confers broader benefit than strength.
This research didn't fare much better with the word choice of "dynamic activity" in reference to walking while housing all of weight lifting under "static activity." But their finding is nonetheless useful.
