How to make your Cardio count.
When do you do cardio? 🏃
Your muscles store energy as a carbohydrate known as glycogen, allowing you to be able to carry out an intense workout as your glycogen stores are depleted. Refilling these glycogen-stores is one reason why post-workout carbohydrates are important.
Cardio also primarily uses this glycogen store as you burn calories on the treadmill. Therefore, doing cardio before your weight training sessions has been shown to have a negative effect on on your gains.
Do your cardio after you are done with your weight training session for an optimal workout. Doing your cardio and strength training on separate days may be even better, but this has only been seen as trends in studies and more studies are needed to secure this fact.
Keep in mind that the is if you priotize your lifting performance .if you value cardio performance more, put that glycogen to use for cardio by doing it first.
