Extra Cardio?

Should I be coupling this program with other cardio or lifting?

Coming to this program from being disappointed in my previous personal trainer. My previous workout schedule had me in the gym for over an hour of high volume lifting with an additional hour of cardio of my choice. I like the HIIT format that you've built, but I still have a pretty good amount of time that I could be devoting to my fitness goals. What can/should I be filling this time with (cardio, long walk, etc.)?

@AJFresh Hey man! Sorry to hear about your previous personal trainer, good choice to hit this program though!


Just wanted to check what your overall goal is? Is it fat loss with this program?


If so and you're looking to spend about an hour in the gym, then you have a couple of options. Depending on how hard / easy you find these routines, you could add in some extra rounds to make it a little bit longer. You could even run through the UPPER routine and then the ABS routine for example. Otherwise yeah, you could add in some cardio at the end.


Hope that helps!

Overall Goal is currently fat loss. I have about 10-15 lbs of fat that I'm trying to burn off before doing any bulking. I am on a calorie deficit diet and am willing to put in the work to see results. I definitely feel muscle fatigue after the HIIT workouts since I've been out of the game for some time now, but still have some time and energy for something afterwards. I'll try out mixing muscle groups, doing some cardio afterwards, or adding some extra rounds if I'm not too burnt out and ask again if I have issues. Thanks for the response

@AJFresh Happy to help man!


Yeah if you're aim is fat loss and you're finding that you still have some energy and time to spare after completing the routines, then try adding some more rounds and maybe a bit of cardio to complete your session.


All of that paired with a calorie deficit will help you lose those 10lbs - 15lbs!
