A. You can do housework as your workout.
B. No, I need to do "aerobic exercise" or "cardio" instead of housework.

Are they both correct and the same? Thank you.

    "cardio" is short for "cardiovascular exercise". which is exercise that is good for the heart (cardio-) and blood circulation (vascular), rather than the kind of exercise that builds muscles.

    It is the same as aerobic exercise. People use the word "cardio" as a fancier, "more cool", "more hip" term.

    Thank you, dojibear.
    In this case, can I say "you need to do more cardio"?
