I’m trying to burn fat, but I’m paranoid about losing strength. I’ve come a long way in that regard, and it’s very important to me. That said, I always add some kind of weighted carry after my workouts, and if I’m pulling I’ll also do some KB swings. I utilize a modified layer system for five lifts, and with CTs advice I’ve made it so I can do this type of work indefinitely. The focus is strength, though I have noticed hypertrophy gains.
My main question is whether traditional cardio days would be beneficial or not. I don’t want to keep adding things to do in the gym, as I don’t want to burn out or stall progress. What I’ve been doing so far has been great for strength and even hypertrophy, so it’s a question of how much more work I can get away with.
And inb4 the diet comments, I am confident that I can tweak things where necessary. My main question is whether added cardio will be detrimental to the strength gains I’ve made. Thank you; let me know if I need to add more info.
