If I had a dime for every time I’ve heard the following question, my house would be filled with them.
Here it is:
“Matt, your exercises are great – but what about cardio?”
What about cardio?
Are you kidding me?
Listen, when you’re doing Hindu squats and Hindu pushups, you’re getting cardio, and you’re getting it BIG time. Hindu squats help lower your resting pulse faster than any other exercise I know. Don’t believe this. Then test it out.
When you do Hindu squats and pushups, you are simultaneously increasing strength, endurance, flexibility. And the endurance you gain is both muscular as well as cardiovascular.
However, in addition to the incredible cardio benefits of doing bodyweight calisthenics, you can enhance further if you do hill sprints, skip rope, do bear crawls, crab walks and so on.
And, truth be told – if you’re still going out and pounding the pavement for an hour to get your cardio, you’re not up to date on current research. Your cardiovascular system gets more good out of a session of 15-30 seconds sprints than it does a long cardio session.
Not only that, but your muscles get more good out of the training, too.

So the next time you think you need more cardio – start hammering out the Hindu squats and watch
your results soar.
All for now!
