Suck it up fatty . 20 minutes of cardio does wonders after a workout.

just 15-20 min. Starting the recomp on Monday!
The pump has to subside sooner or later,
deal with it
I lost 50 pounds doing cardio BEFORE my weight workouts.
I like cardio after, it gives me a chance to fee like I burn calories, I don't feel that as much as I'm lifting
I was thinking more light jogging / cycling to get into the 60% MHR range
I feel ya bro, i can literaly feel my pump leave, but i suck it up for teh sekcynezzz
E-Pharm Rep... PM me with any questions or concerns
I will take my post w/o drink after i'm done lifting and the go on the treadmill for 7-10 minutes at close to this 3.0-3.3 at 15% incline and i get a good sweat in that short period of time, although lately i have not been doing this b/c my workouts are taking longer with my partner and I'm sad to say that I'm putting on weight in the wrong places!
i just do straight HITT after my weights that way only takes about 15min I keep my HR at approx 80-85% max and I'm still pumped when i'm done.
I feel like doing cardio after weights does more, because all of your muscle fibers are activated. Also, it takes something like 15-18 minutes of cardio to even get to the point where you are burning fat. I feel like weights gets that out of the way and I can get to the fat burning!
Whoever said that the pump has to subside sooner or later is right. I have never been one to hold my pump for very long anyway.
I like to start my workout with 5 min of walking on incline. Gets me warmed up. I do know a guy who gets up in the morning and does 20 min of fasted walking on incline. He says it make a world of difference when cutting.
I feel like doing any other time besides cutting might be a quick way to waste away muscle mass.
would anyone have a link to an article that cites studies re: cardio after weight-lifting?
One thing that nobody ever mentions is the fat burning your doing when OFF the treadmill. You burn more fat throughout the day in a rested like state. With that said, I'm of the mindset that the absolute best thing to do is HIIT for 10-12 minutes after weights. Run your hardest/fastest and suck it up. You'll get your heart rate up and throughout the day burn more fat.
I just don't see how a 3.0-3.5mph walk, even incline is going to have that great an effect as compared to HIIT. Keep in mind all, you burn more fat off the treadmill then on. Now go run and get that heart rate up!
