It's not just one time. My opinion to them has been that proper intensity in your workout provides enough cardi benefit. If building muscle is your main concern, then don't do extra cardio. Save that energy for your body to grow.
For the most part it's always about like this. Some guy anywhere from 5'10" to 6'2" who weigh's about 165 is complaining that he can't gain weight. He's on a split program and doing cardio, so he's got one day of complete rest.
If I remember right I think I even told him he should think about having a dbl whopper meal instead of doing cardio.
I'll see if I can find some of the threads.
