I’m planning to add a brief morning cardio session (before eating) to accelerate fat loss. I understand from reading the t-mag archives that this is a good time to do this. However, I’d like some guidelines regarding workout duration and intensity.
For example, on my non-lifting days, I’ve started the Running Man interval workout. Although this lasts only 15 minutes, it is (to me) very intense. I don’t think that I would be able to handle this first thing in the morning without eating - I’m not a morning person anyway. Even if I could handle the intensity, it would probably hurt my performance at work (which is unacceptable) and hurt my lifting workouts later in the day (which is undesirable).
Is there a typical duration or intensity (possibly a target heart rate, etc.) for morning cardio sessions? Also, is it typical to do these sessions every day (even on days that I’d do the Running Man later in the day) or just on lifting days?
