    Default Type of Cardio you do and when can influence your results

    How the type of cardio you do (and when) can influence your results.
    -
    There's good evidence indicating the interference effect is local [2, 3]. Lower body dominant cardio (specifically, running and cycling) doesn't interfere with upper body muscle development. So one effective way to program your cardio is by having lower-body dominant cardio after your upper body training. Based on the same theory, you can also consider upper body-dominant cardio (e.g. battle ropes) after lower body training.

    This way, you can minimize the interference effect while doing cardio and lifting weights in the same session. If you do full-body workouts, you can plan lower-body based cardio on days in which you train your legs with lower volumes.
