It is the prolonged continuous cardio whereby their heart rate is elevated for extended periods that is able to slim them back to lean muscle. Runners however will not have particularly big muscles because they will be developed to undergo long periods of low intensity exertion. This will build the muscles into high stamina fibres able to withstand long periods without rest. Prolonged exertion is considered the best way to burn calories.
