I am new to weight training. I went through a couple routines and finally came accross one that I like. I train on a 3 day upper/lower/upper split. With having goals for fat loss also I Try and do cardio on the days in between my weight training.
The reason I say try is because cardio just does not come easy for me. I understand that cardio isn’t everybodys favorite but is essential too develop a good physique. I for some reason get chest pains and pains in my legs after only 5 minutes of running.
I am in the military so my running choice is the treadmill. There are other machines such as the bike and the eliptical. I choose to use the treadmill so that I could do Interval training. I just need some ideas as to why I feel this way from running. I have been to the doctor and there is nothing wrong with my legs, the chest pains I dont really know.
also is it a bad idea to do abs on my days off from weight training?
