Interesting post over at SuppVersity on a new study that shows doing cardio before weight training can produce better gains than just resistance training alone. While it’s only one study it certainly interesting and worth considering no?
Cardio Can BOOST Your Gains?! Do it Before Weights and be Rewarded With 28% Increased Fiber Size & VO2 Gains
In previous articles at the SuppVersity, I have written about the still ubiquitous concern that cardio training (or aerobic training, in general) could hamper your size and strength gains – a fear that is, unless you overdo it, unwarranted (learn more about HIIT & “regular” cardio training).
