Cardio

I need so help here. I heard someone taking about not doing cardio during a curtain part of a cycle. I was wandering if that is true or not. If it is true what part? I run 3.3miles every other day. Thanks

If someone’s only goal is to gain size and strength, they will often cut cardio out of a growth stage. See the model of the Growth Surge Project. During stage 2, most people would cut the cardio except for maybe a light 5-10 warm-up before the weights. Cardio tends to use up needed calories and too much of it can hinder recovery.
