    Cardio During Cutting

    I usually do cardio in the morning on empty at 65-75 MHR. Sometimes I do two a days and I had a question about this...

    How often can I get away with doing the 2 cardio sessions a day? Only a couple times a week? Or, since its such light cardio....can I get away with doing it almost every day without running myself down?

    Where you pullin this from? I know some people from these boards do the cardio (65-75%MHR) twice a day at times, including mods.

    Whats your reasoning?

    You can do it twice a day. Usually if Its comp time thats when 2 times a day comes into play. A lot of people do it first thing in the morning then a little while after their first meal.

    IMO if you have to resort to 2/day sessions you either didnt time your diet right or your diet just isnt right...

    I dunno bro a lot of competitors swear by it. I am going to try it in the fall. it brings you in much harder. I will only do 20 minutes in the evening though, nothing rediculous

    cool i dunno ive never tried so i cant really say it doesnt work but just it's just the thought of it i guess, but if you're really serious about comps i guess, but i just think you'd get too worn out...

    In jay cutlers vid he wakes up at like 1am goes in and does 45 mins then again at 8am. He obviously times it so he has an empty stomach, and recovers his glycogen for his afternoon weight session.

    these cardio sessions aren't exactly intense though. Its just a walk on an incline....

    I guess even that could do something. I could have sworn I saw Swolecat saying something about it. I could be wrong.

    Realistically you cannot do it twice a day everyday because at some point you have to weight train, and I personally would never suggest doing cardio after weights (mixing of aerobics w/anaerobics). You could do the two-a-days on "off" days from weight training, yes, but make sure your dietary plan of attack supports those extended efforts.

    Then you should probably be consulting with me in e-mail about what your best plan of attack is based upon what you have accomplished thus far. I don't handle personal business on the board here.

    Thanks!

    Swolecat, cardio after weight training is the only way to go. You should read some articals on this. You're never suppose to do cardio before training with weights. I lost 50lbs in about 2mths by eating nothing but Proteins & Fats and doing cardio 3 - 4 times a week.

    NO THANKS, I NEVER ADVISE MIXING AEROBICS W/ANAEROBICS. DO A SEARCH HERE AS TO WHY, I'VE COVERED IT A PLETHORA OF TIMES.

    You should read some articals on this.

    UHHHH, YEAH...........

    You're never suppose to do cardio before training with weights.

    WHO SAID THAT? THAT'S AN EVEN MORE ASSININE IDEA.

    I lost 50lbs in about 2mths by eating nothing but Proteins & Fats and doing cardio 3 - 4 times a week.
    CONGRATS, BUT THIS HAD NOTHING TO DO W/WHAT WE WERE DISCUSSING.

    read articals that you posted? Swole, you're no expert on any of this. I highly doubt you have any type of degree that certifies you to write these articals. You should try reading some articals by people with bacholer degrees on the subject. The people who are paid $140,000 a year to research the body and figure out what makes it work. These are the people that say NO CARDIO BEFORE WEIGHT TRAINING. These are the people that ENCOURAGE you to do cardio after workout and after you're post-workout meal. lol.. you should visit some professional body building sites (I.E. www.jaycutler.com) and view their workout. Notice how they don't run early in the morning.. on empty stomachs.. or they never do cardio pre-work out. Maybe some lite cardio to warm up the knees for squats or to get the blood circulating.

    BTW, since you are so gassed up on Jay Cutler and believing what you read for the sales of supplements, Jay does 1/2 hour of EMPTY STOMACH CARDIO DAILY.

    Now, put that in your pipe and smoke it.

    You mean ARTICLES, right??

    Try to understand this, really, slow down and COMPREHEND.

    I said the EXACT SAME THING, it's ASSININE to do BEFORE WEIGHTS. No one ever mentioned doing it BEFORE WEIGHTS, which is why I asked, "WHO SAID THAT???????"

    You need to actually slow down and understand what you read.

    Now, where's my $140,000????



    Too funny, but a waste of time.
