    I've heard before (somewhere on real-jock) That it's a bad idea to do Cardio AND strength training in the same day. And that if you do, you won't see major results from either form of conditioning.

    I do cardio training for about an hour, five times a week. And while it's slowly helping me trim away what's left of that "spare tire" region, I feel like I'm neglecting other muscles that could use some serious beefing-up.

    So, my question is: Is it true? I can't run/bike/whatever for an hour, and then go down and hit the bench? I'd REEEAAAALLY like to find a way to do both.

    I do cardio and weight training in the same day, although not as much cardio as I do on cardio only days (25-30min opposed to 45-60min); granted I'm not the best example since I'm no professional and still whittling my midsection down...and from what I've read and heard from others, you should lift first, do cardio after lifting icon_wink.gif
