    How can you mix high intensity cardio into your weight lifting without overtraining if you are a beginner? Can you do cardio the day after weight lifting or will you be working those same muscles agian? can you build muscle with cardio or willl you lose most of your muscle?

    As a beginner you can do cardio without destroying your gains. You don't need to do heaps.. just 2-3, 15-20 minute HIIT sessions per week is great. Just do them after your weight training (either straight after or later in the day, yes you can do cardio on the same day you lift or the day after) and make sure you're eating enough to grow. That is the key for you as a beginner. You need FOOD to grow and if you are eating enough to be in a surplus after doing weight training AND cardio, then you're good to go. Thought about trying my Push/Pull/Legs program to make the most of those newbie gains too? http://muscularstrength.com/Full-Workout-Programs

    Hey!

     

    Sorry for hijacking the thread! I hope it's not rude from me. Thanks for this Information Scott! I have one question: What about cardio after legs day? Is it safe to do HIIT after Legs day? Or should I rest those legs :)

    It's OK @montana123! You can do HIIT cardio after training legs.. but if you can.. I would do HIIT on a different day, haha. As long as you still eat enough and sleep enough it shouldn't have a major impact on your legs so it's really up to you :-)
