Set-Rep! # 13 Timing is everything

Studies have shown that engaging in aerobic or endurance exercise prior to anaerobic or resistance training can result in diminished strength when engaging in the anaerobic portion. Though I am not advocating dropping steady-state cardio from your routine, I am recommending that you split the resistance and cardio, electing to weight train on one day and do cardio another. This allows for greater recovery between the two portions and helps prevent overtraining.

P.S. As an added bonus, adopt HIIT training instead of steady -state cardio for maximum strength and muscle gain.
