Say, hypothetically, that one’s goal was to get ripped. Say, also hypothetically, that that person does not have an aversion to doing 30min cardio every day. Would that imaginary friend of mine benefit from such an amount of cardio? Keeping the cardio separated from the resistance training, of course.
Now, say that anything over 30min cardio -at a time- catabolizes one’s muscle. How about if that person performed 30min cardio at 70% MHR (eg. jogging) in the AM and 20min HIIT cardio (eg. sprint intervals) in the PM, possibly after the strength routine?
This keeps the two cardio sessions at a large distance from one another as well as mixing up the 70%/HIIT. Would this work or would it lead to muscle wasting?
