So I?ve spent some time reading over the site, and it seems my idea that cardio = ripped is seriously flawed?
So I guess my question is how much cardio should I be doing? Should I try three times a week, or each day before I life but just a little bit? I have looked over some of the workouts on the site and they seem fairly straightforward. Should I life as heavy as I can to build the most possible? I read in a fitness magazine a while back that one of the best things you could do was do your cardio first thing in the morning to get your metabolism up, and then do your lifting a bit later in the day after your rested. Any one have an opinion on this? From what I am reading it seems like maybe just 20 min or so on a bike or a stair climber would be ok as a warm up for my work out. And I have recanted my ?I don?t want to work my legs? ideal (after much scorn).
So how much cardio should I do if I want to cut up?
I think also after reading some of the articles I must have been starving my body, and maybe that?s why I couldn?t loose any more fat. I was running almost 4 or 5 miles a day and hitting the heavy bag but I was trying to keep my calories to around 1500 a day, and I didn?t have much fat in my diet as well.
Sigh, learning all over. Stupid high school phys ed. Class.
