Some swear that cardio is anathema to strength training while others I know claim that it will increase your GPP.
Regardless, I have decided that before my mortal coil expires and the grim reaper takes me into eternal slumber that I want to see what my abs look like; I want to be shredded for if nothing more just a few months during the summer and see how much I can lift as well at my lightest possible weight class.
My heart strength sucks; this I know. The last time that I moved, my friends commented on how I was huffing and puffing away; like many powerlifters I am out of shape.
So I want to start doing cardio for many reasons, especially since a strong ticker will hopefully keep the grim reaper away.
I have decided to try jumping rope as my cardio for now.
I am just curious to know many of you have incorporated cardio into your strength training, and exactly how much effect it has had on your strength training goals both with and without dieting included.
