How To Correct The Top Five Cardio-Training Mistakes #4
Explanation – The fear of some that cardio will waste away hard-earned muscle may be exaggerated, but it is not entirely unfounded. After call. Cardio on a treadmill involves lower-body muscle action, just as rope climbers and rowing machines hit the upper body. So too much cardio might stifle growth and recovery.
- Just as HIT workouts use a minimum amount of iron time, HIIT can reduce your cardio to as little as 20 minutes, three times weekly, thus limiting the muscular workload.
- Regularly alternate machines, weight exercises and outdoor exercises to stimulate muscles.
- Don’t do leg-intensive cardio on leg day, and you may also want to avoid it the day after an especially intense leg workout.
