Cardio after leg day
Hi.... Just wondering if it's ok to do cardio (treadmill / elliptical ) the day after leg day? What if my legs still sore after 2 days is it ok to do cardio? Will it slow down my leg development? Will I overtrain my legs? Was just wondering cause most of the time after leg day I'm sore for 3 days

Overtraining if you do it the day after and don't give the muscle group any rest. Think of it like your doing hundreds of push-ups the day after chest day. No rest for a muscle group can lead to overtraining, fatigue, and injuries. My legs are sore for days later also, just give them one day of rest and then you can hit them again, cardio or whatever. You can push through soreness.

i always feel that im most prone to injury when i do cardio the day before leg training (get hurt while lifting), or if i do cardio the day after lifting (get hurt while doing cardio)
i personally dont care for the soreness of muscles, but im more concerned with my joints and ligaments healing and getting rest.
personally, i believe if you hit legs right and hard enough, your mandatory rest day should be the day after leg training, as in totally take off from all training to recoup from such a serious training session.

skip cardio after legs and the day after(of course that's assuming you want your legs to grow)
that said, when dieting or pre-contest, cardio the day after is fine

cardio the day after is fine the same day is fine i find the cardio helps.legs are pritty big muscle to over train.
in most ppl opions on this thead you should just lie around for 2 days after your work out
so honey i can not have sex i had a back workout yesterday
i can not jerk off to day i worked me forearms yesterday
your cardio is not going to be so intence that it will limit you recovery

Yea I wouldn't do intense cardio the day before and after a workout assuming you are going to demolish your legs on the workout. But I wouldn't skip easy-medium cardio the day before, day of, and day after. Doing light cardio followed by stretching the day I work out my legs makes them feel less soar the day after.
