20 mins is nothing.
What kind of cardio? (HIIT or 65-75%MHR)
Is this AFTER lifting? (not ideal)

You should be fine...Like swole said, 20 min. is nothing and don't do cardio after you lift weights....

well im 19 and im keeping my heart rate at about 141 give or take about 5points... and when should i do cardio? i thought it would be better to do it after lifting weights cuz then my glucogen stores would be down right? and i would burn more fat than just sugar stores??? im lost whats the best i can do? with out tearing into my muscle?
