Physical Fitness personal question???

This is kind of hard to put in words, but heres it goes. its something that really erks me when I think about it. Im 18 years old and really into physical fitness, since I was 12 Ive been weight lifting, but up until about a year ago I never really focused on cardio or endurance training, my question is even though I never really focused on cardio and endurance can I still say " make up for it" and train really hard to have really good endurance and cardio fitness.

    You have your entire life to train to get better at anything. Of course you can make up for it.

    Get started now and equal out your skills.

    Okay, now that you've seen the previous replies, allow me to bring you back into the real world.

    The real question at hand is HOW IS YOUR CURRENT ENDURANCE LEVEL?

    If you are weight training for bodybuilding, then you will HAVE TO perform at least 20 minutes of cardio 3-4 days a week.

    If you are weight training for powerlifting, then you should concentrate solely on weight training.

    Cardio helps the blood flow faster and begins the fat burning process. Granted, building muscles burns fat 24/7, as well. But all and all, cardio gives you that "great start" before a hard bodybuilding/powerlifting workout or that "finishing touch" after the training, whichever the time you choose to perform it.

    There is always time to get better at something when it comes to fitness. I am 23 and have never thought i would be good at cardio specifically running long distance and with only a couple months of training i can run 3 to 5 miles. Its still a little hard to get to that five mile mark but a few months ago i could only run ten minutes and wanted to stop. Whatever you put your mind to when it comes to physical fitness can be accomplished if your dedicated to really changing yourself.

    It's never too late to start working on your cardio fitness. I actually was in the same situation and didn't start my cardio fitness until I was a freshmen in college. As long as you keep up the weight, all the cardio will do is lean you down and make you look better!

    Hi, of course you can! you are still very young, even at 30 it wouldn't be too late to start cardio. Most men reach their physical prime well into their 30's.

    You can get good cardio endurance when you are 70 so I would say yes!

    And good for you.
