Does (muscle confusion/body adapting to exercises) apply to Cardio?

Asked by windex (2926points) December 26th, 2009

Hihi

So for bodybuilding and building muscle, they talk about muscle confusion and your body adapting, and not getting the same results. So changing your routine every 3 months is good.

But what about Cardio? what about Running?

If you run lets say 3 miles every day or x days a week, will you burn less calories Because you’re body has adapted and is used to running 3 miles a day? do you at that point, increase the distance and/or intensity?

or does it not apply to cardio?
