How To Correct The Top Five Cardio-Training Mistakes #1

 

Improper Workout Timing

 

Explanation – Cardio has traditionally been thought of as a warm-up activity, thus many bodybuilders do it before weight training. This both robs energy from their iron workout and limits their fat burning. Others prefer to do it in a separate workout. This is also not ideal.

 

Solutions

  • Do the bulk of your cardio immediately after weight training. Fat burning is at its greatest during the first 15 minutes, but shoot for 20.
  • If you need to crank up the cardio and hit it twice daily, do one of those sessions in the morning before eating any carbs, but have 10-20 grams of fast-digesting whey protein first to prevent muscle loss and actually burn more fat.
  • Include some cardio action as a warm-up, especially on leg day, to loosen up and prime the pump. Keep your pre-workout time on a stationary bike or stair master to 10 minutes or less.8971.PNG
