The HHS Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans provides separate goals for aerobic activity and strengthening exercise.  A different way of looking at things is High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).   HIIT blurs the line between cardio and strength.  It progresses to doing a selection of sprint intensity activities lasting less than 1.5 minutes each, put together for a total time of 15 or fewer minutes.   The NY Times promoted a version they called the Scientific 7-Minute Workout because it was initially published in the ACSM Health & Fitness Journal.  Someone created a version of this program for your PC.  The Times recently published an advanced second version of the workout and offer a phone app.
