Cardio + weights on the same day?

  1. Cardio + weights on the same day?


    Here's the rundown...
    320 lbs, 22% bf.. looking to drop as much fat as possible within the next 2 months.

    Is it advisable to do weights in the morning and later on in the day hop on the bike for about 45 mins - 1hr?

    Or will this be too catabolic towards muscle?

    Looking for any feedback here guys,

    Thanks in advance.

    As long as you are eating right you will be fine.

    You could also do cardio immediately following weight training if you so desired.
    We live in a time where our planet suffers from two epidemics simultaneously - starvation and obesity.

    Look at all these little kids taking care of the music biz, don't their business take good care of me.

    I have the fire, I have the force, I have the power to make my evil take it's course.

  3. You could do cardio twice a day 20 - 45 minutes each session if desired. Just remember to eat 5 - 6 small meals a day and take your multi vitamins. Watch your sugar levels too.

  4. Glycogen stores are (stores) of energy that your body uses during weight training and cardiovascular exercise. Although, during weight training glycogen stores are the only energy source used. Thus, completing your cardiovascular routine before weight training will substantially deplete your energy (glycogen) stores needed to complete a proper weight training program. Also, completing your weight training before your cardiovascular program significantly decreases you glycogen stores. So, when you begin your cardiovascular training your body burns less glycogen and more of your stored fat. In summary, to reach you optimal fat burning stages and to have the proper energy to utilize an exercise program, complete your weight training before you cardiovascular training.

  5. pjmc: just curious, how tall are you? I'm 6' and was 22%/200lbs not too long ago.
