i read you should have atleast 5 hours between cardio and lifting.. i just do them on different days

If possible do cardio and lifting an different days, if not you should have more time between the two.

Why should cardio and lifting be on different days?? I heard that if you do cardio before lifting you still can burn substantial calories while lifting and still benefit from the lifts???

Right afterwards I think is fine, but not right before. I believe it has to do with your muscles being in a catabolic state after cardio and thats bad to start lifting with.

If I were going to do some cardio on a lifting day, I would do it like 4-5 hours after I lift
