  3. For me it just breaks it up really, I can get more cardio In as needed. Off season I just do enough to keep my heart healthy and fat at bay.

  4. gotcha! i just try and keep my rest intervals low and keep my heart rate up through my lifts. Ill throw in plyo and body weight supersets alot too..

    but right now im doing GVT and high set high rep hypertrophy training so im getting plenty of cardio with that as it is.

    That's actually what I try and do also in the off season to avoid plain old cardio lol.

    I wanna try GVT sometime very intriguing

    i would reccomend it to anybody dude! its crazy! ive made more progress in the 2 months that ive done it than i have ever in a 2 month period...its definately made me a believer in tension/time for hypertrophy training. Im about to change it up a bit and go to higher reps lower sets or go to a 8x8 to 6x12 regimine

    this is fine

    when precontest, it is a common strategy to seperate sessions, so as to burn more cals/get more energy expenditure
    for body comp purposes, 2 active sessions in a day is more fruitful than one + allows you to hold more muscle (theoretically)

    doing weights/cardio together is fine - so long as you are not doing one or the other to excess, and especially w/o any intraWO nutrition support (bcaa/eaa etc)

    one thing tho - it is generally advised to do your cardio following weights (and not vice versa) so as to not detract from optimal growth factors

    utilizing some low-intensity cardio for short duration prior to lifting, as a warm-up, is fine ie 5-10min fast-walk/slow-jog prior to training, esp is great warm-up for the legs prior to squatting

    lol
    well, aside from the obvious cardiovascular benefits of cardio, keep in mind that not everybody needs it for body comp purposes (diet/metabolism play a major role in this aspect)

    and "cardio" in itself, is not always what we assume it to be ie treadmill or machine
    sports, biking, hiking, sprinting, etc are all various forms of cardio..
    swimming is one the most (if not THE most) energy-consuming cardio one can do
    (tennis works like a champ for me)

    and the most basic form of cardio itself (weight training) is ignored by many weight enthusiasts
    simply picking up the pace within training, shortening rest periods (30-45sec rest between sets), increasing tempo, employing supersets/giant sets/double-doubles etc are all ways to increase the cardio output of your weight sessions
    (i employ this concept much myself)

    cardio ie elevated heart-rate can take many shapes

    captain obvious tho i may be, thought this may be useful way to look at things, for some



    sorry again bean5er, i just happen to enjoy the topic at hand

    Honestly it's pretty RAD!!! Did two scoops today that's my G spot lol, I'd compare the focus to that of old school lit up minus the cracked out feeling. My endurance is up from last week sweating like a stuck pig. Fruit punch is prob my fav flavor besides apple condense. I'm hooked on it.
