When you're cutting cardio plays a major role. During a bulk it CAN be beneficial but also counter productive

The Japanese are famous for how long they live. How many of them rock climb? Mr Kimura, the most recent oldest living Japanese man (oldestjapaneseman) said that his secret to living long was to “eat light to live longer,” http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/13/wo...-116.html?_r=0
short story: don't get fat. don't watch tv all day. DONE. Maybe walk to your mailbox instead of drive....

I also lift weights, I keep a log on here, I'd bet money I lift more than the OP, and also that I'm at least 10 years older. IMO young people these days have a very skewed idea of what constitutes 'active', due to the fact that, as you say, the majority of people lead *extremely* sedentary lives. However, like the saying goes, just because everybody does something doesn't make it *right*.

It's all about the heart
Many people do cardio with the though of burning calories, but the real benefit is to cardiovascular system which become more important as we get older. Heavy ass weight training is heart friendly too but not nearly as much as a few hours of moderate cardio every week. Personally I do a combination of HIIT and steady state cardio during the week knowing that the only reason I'm doing it is for heart health.

Cardiovascular exercise's value is, as many have noted, exactly related to its name. Numerous studies in recent years have demonstrated that it is of little value in weight loss (although it may be useful in keeping weight off). The NYT has reported numerous studies. I can't link to them, but you can google one entitled "Dieting vs. Exercise for Weight Loss," published Aug. 1, 2012. It links to other studies.

Get fat But in all seriousness you can still eat at a defecit while on the road, it's all about discipline. HIIT is only one way to do cardio, it's the quickest way to burn calories and fat but you can do any number of cardio workouts to aid in that.
