2b Cardio, When to Do It?

Hi Ct

For a 2b when is the optimal time to do cardio After a workout or on its own day ?

I’ve found complete days off helpful for recovery but also read of the negative effect of cardio after lifting so I’m not sure as to where to place it.

This is for fat loss purposes.

Thanks CT

The optimal is never after a lifting session.

The best is on its own day. But seriously, unless you do hard intervals or endurance training (60 min + intense) it will not interfere with recovery.
