yep, I read the entire HCT12 thing last night, nutrition, faq, the science behind it all, everything. I was up 2 hours longer than I should have been.
As far as the amount of cardio, I completely understand as an instructor, the use of generalities. I have to use them all the time.
so the 2800 kcal I need, I can figure the protein and fat from the article, but let's say it takes 60 mins to lift, then 30 mins cardio, is the cardio going to hamper the muscle gain?
2800 is only 500 more than my BMR, well what they "calculated" it at anyways.
I guess I don't want to overwork and not have enough for recovery, but I still want to shed this body fat and gain muscle.
I guess the biggest thing is: how do you know when you are overtraining on cardio? How do I figure out how much cardio I need?
