CTI Week 13: Cardio Modality Efficacy

The purpose of this CTI is for you to locate and summarize a peer-reviewed research study on the efficacy (effectiveness) of a particular cardio modality. We’ve talked quite a bit about running programs, running injuries, proper running form, and footwear.

In this Critical Thinking Inquiry assignment however, you will need to write about an alternative form of cardiorespiratory exercise. Consider cycling, swimming, rowing, cross-country skiing, ellipticals, or some form of group exercise such as step aerobics, cardio kickboxing, hi-low impact, or Zumba. What does the evidence say regarding effectiveness? Does the modality you’ve chosen help a person to become more aerobically fit?


You will be using either the Library Research Guide in our Canvas site or Google Scholar for this assignment.
