Is it a bad idea for a beginner to do cardio on off days?
I'm using this workout http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=998224
It's not bad but a bit unnecessary. I'd lift first and then if (assuming you are cutting) weight loss stalls, add some light cardio on off days.
Cardio is also good for your heart, just don't go jogging if you are a fatass od your joints are kill.
Might wanna give your connective tissue time to catch up with your muscles. Don't burn yourself. out. You ain't gettin fit in 30 days m8. Low impact cardio probably won't hinder ya though
You should be doing cardio in your workouts anyways Anon.
Change one of your workouts to circuit training. You get the best of both worlds since it's considered HIIT.
>Keep your off days.
Doing cardio leads to better gains. Don't fall for memes.
Yes it's good to do some cardio man, most people in fit are fat fucks that believe that doing no cardio and doing shit like E/C/A stack will make them skinnier if they just skip the cardio.
If you don't know what ECA is is taking coffee and coughing pills to lose weight, which fucks with your heart beat and makes you sweat like a mother fuck.
You want to know a natural preworkout? Almonds and watermelon, fucking pumps you like a mother fucker and it's not fucking 50 bucks a pop.
Want to know a fat burner? A kale, chard, spinach, pineapple, apple, groundflax, banana, and 2 cups of water smoothie. Makes you shit like a motherfucker, cleans your body, and helped me get shredded by losing mad weight in 2 months after bulking.
Shouldn't have told you legit tips, but fuck it, I texted the same shit to a friend of mine through the chrome whatsapp so might as well.
If you complain about the taste, you don't deserve to be /fit/. I had to sometimes hold my breath while drinking some nasty protein powders that don't mix well with water, and I just drink it and don't complain.
Went 0 to autism pretty quick
Don't even go within 50 yards of an erg unless you are absolutely certain your form is correct.
If your form is shite you're probably not getting the most out of it and likely fucking up your back in the process
Posting in this thread because i think it might be a good place to ask.
I'm a basketball player and i recently (december) started lifting because i'm too weak for the position i play ( center).
Is it ok to do
Monday : Ball training
Tuesday : Lift
Wednesday : Ball training
Thursday : Lift
Friday : Ball training
Saturday : rest day
Sunday : Game day-Lift
I think it might be too heavy. Sunday isnt very heavy, i dont play many minutes in my games.
I'm doing SL 5X5 btw because i have no fucking clue of what i'm doing in the gym.
have you ever noticed that liberals are never buff?
You should do some form of conditioning for your general health.
If you are talking HIIT, it can be a great way to stimulate muscle growth while doing cardio, but you need to make sure you are getting adequate rest and eating enough. It really is a great way to shift the muscle to fat ratio in a bulk though.
If you are a true beginner (no sport in HS/college, etc), you might want to keep your HIIT totally separate from your main lifting days. Since beginner programs are usually 3 tiems a week anyway, this usually means adding a fourth daydedicated to your intense cardio.
Otherwise, jogging/walking can be done way before or just after a workout with no major damage to your lifts so long as you eat enough and rest enough.
