Have gotten conflicting info googling this so thought I’d get some input here on cardio and powerlifting.
I guess the categories of weight management and performance should be seperate.
Maybe some talking points:
-Cardio taking up recovery resources that could go to lifting gains
-Type of cardio and negative effects on lifting (Walking vs Cycling, LISS vs Intervals, Modalities/loading that are close to lifting like sled push)
-Benefits of increased cardio to performance like faster recovery between sets, workouts, events or during a meet if competing.
What do you or don’t you guys do in terms of conditioning or cardio and why?
