Thank you all for your awesome advice, I had thought staying away from cardio would not harm me! I guess it didnt' harm me, but didn't get my anywhere either, so today, did back and tris really heavy, then did 30 minutes of intervals on eliptical then some kettlebell swings til I couldn't do more.
Waht is your guy's take on when you're trying ot lose fat (by doing cardio, cardio, cardio) and if I"m carb cycling and also trying to gain mass in upper body and lift heavy, when should I do cardio? I lift 5 days of the week and the other 2, since I have goals, can do cardio (need a day off?---unless my body tells me!) but when I lift, maybe just do hiit afterwards? then have a protein shake and no sugar/carbs right after since I did cardio after lifting? usually i"ll have some gummy bears and then a protein shake immediateyl after lifting session, but if I'm trying to do cardio to to tap into my fat stores, just protein shake? then avoid carbs for dinner one hour later? so much to think about! so many options to do....thanks guys
