If you gain lean muscle mass and that increases your metabolism, your body should burn the fat the more muscle you gain. Before all of you write and give me a class in what cardio is for I know its good for you and your heart and all that. So many people include it in their workout programs to burn calories though, while they are trying to gain lean muscle mass. This question has come up to me after watching a mens bodybuilding competition in wheelchairs. There is no way for them to do cardio but all these guys are ripped and have a decent amount of muscle to them...so is it really necessary to do the cardio?
