30 min lifting 30 min cardio

  1. 30 min lifting 30 min cardio


    Hey guys. Well, I tried doing cardio on separate times, but my schedule just dont allow it.

    Instead, would it be ok to lift heavy 30 mins then cardio 30 mins? I am just cutting some fat and still trying to preserve muscle. SO my schedule pretty much looks like this


    and every morning, walking for 20 mins on an empty stomach

    mon - chest / cardio
    tues - back / cardio
    wed - legs / cardio
    thurs - arms / abs / cardio
    fri - shoulders /abs / cardio
    sat - rest
    sun - rest

    30min / 30min


    Just would like your opinion, good to go or tweak it up a bit. Going to do this for 2 months then bulk up again

    I would put shoulders before arms first off, always train biggest groups first. Do you have no free time on weekends?
    You could always combine chest/back, arms/shoulders then do

    Mon: chest/back
    Tues: cardio
    Wed: legs
    Thurs: cardio
    Fri: shoulders/arms
    Sat sun: more cardio if needed

    Just do longer cardio tues/thurs instead of lifting

  3. Overtraining, don't do resistance training more than 4 days a week. Some people can handle 5, but let the muscles recover at least 48 hours. Fat loss is mainly achieved on the diet, not how much you catabolize muscle in overtraining splits like this.

    Mon: chest

    Tues: back/ cardio (20 min)

    Wed: legs

    Thurs: cardio

    Fri: shoulders/arms

    Sat sun: off

    Overtraining is a CNS issue, not a muscular one.
