kettlebell vs step workout for cardio?

If you do a good  kettlebell workout do you still need to do step aerobics for a cardio workout?  The kettlebell workouts I have really get my heart pumping lots more than doing a step workout.

    I workout with kettlebells but I still do cardio workouts.  I think it really depends on you, how your body responds to it and what your goals are.  My body responds better when I do lots of cardio.

    We agree with HelloBetty in the sense that you would be able to do a step workout following a kettlebell workout if it felt right to you at the time.  However, you may want to choose a cardio-exclusive step workout vs a step aero/tone interval workout, so your muscles are not overworked.

    I get a good cardio workout doing kettlebells, probably better than cardio alone.
