    I do 30 min. of cardio after I lift weights, 4 times a week. I have tried doing it in the morning on an empty stomach, but I can't, it's hell. I need food when I wake up.

    probably not, however, if you are trying to grow maybe you should forget about the cardio until you are happy with your size.

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Hey,

    You want to alway do cardio 8 to 12 hours before or after your weight training workout. Because glycogen storage is non-existent when you wake up in the morning and do cardio on an empty stomach. I would drink a protein shake with no carbs 30 mins before your workouts. I do my cardio 7:00 A.M. and workout around 5 or 6 P.M. When you do cardio your release cortisol (catbolic hormone) that is released when you are doing cardiovascular. It is very important however that you supply your muscles with a carboydrate (dextrose) right after your workout. That will spike up your insulin, and then drink a protein drink about 20-30 mins afterwards. In summary just space your cardiovascular out and weight training. I would not recommend you do your cardiovascular workout right before or after because your muscle tissue needs that carbs and protein right afterwards. You do not want to be in a catabolic state where your body will use muscle tissue as energy. Hope I helped
