Help with Cardio/diet structure
I've started back last week after a long lay from gym and cardio! and just wanted to ask a few questions: My aim is more of a tranformation losing fat and trying to gain as much mucle as possible while on reduced calories
last week i went 5 mornings a week at around 60-65% of HR for 45mins, i felt i haven't seen any noticable results, i know its been a week but i im thinking of increasing heart rate to 70-75%. is this acceptable.
wanted to know where to add carbs was thinking:
Idea was having P/C in second meal instead of 1st, hopefully carbs in this meal would fuel my weigh trainning sessions.
What do you guys do???
Thanks for help

Some will say you wont feel the effect of eating carbs before a workout all that much, but each person is different and as long as you are losing fat and not muscle your diet structure is fine. Also, the cardio at 75% is fine for you, just make sure you dont push it too hard. You always have to give your body time to adjust to a new diet and training regimen, so upping the cardio right now may not be needed. Wait at least 3-6weeks and if you still dont have results then up the intensity. I know that's a long wait to see something, but it is necessary, plus why do more work if you can do less and still have great results.
