Thread: Muscle Recovery/Cardio
06-03-2005, 06:09 PM #1
I was wondering If doing cardio in between workouts messes with your normal muscle recovery. I have heard if you workout one day and then cardio your muscles are recovering from the workout, and then you delay the process because they have to repair themselves after your cardio session. I did squats yesterday and this morning I was sore as hell because I hadn't done them in 3 weeks because I f**ked up my knee. So will cardio mess with my muscle recovery and cause me to not rebuild as strong as I would have been if I hadn't done cardio?

low intensity moderate time should be just fine and in fact help you with your muscle recovery. in fact every serious trainee should always do a 10minute cool down session after training intense...do HIIT and you will only delay your recovery process

Thanks guys I read something about that somewhere and i didn't really agree with it..I'm going to start doing cardio 5 days a week on the morning on an empty stomach like I have been reading on here hopefully that will help me shred a little bodyfat.

I do cardio in the a.m. after leg day or any day for that matter and I'm fine. It can actually speed the recovery process by removing lactic acid buildup. You won't "SHRINK" from doing cardio and working the most important muscle of all (the heart), as long as you eat correctly the other 23+ hours of the day.
