    Cardio after weight training session?

    Yes or No?

    Personal experiences?

    Some say it's better to do slowpaced cardio after a weight training to improve fatloss, others claim it interferes with your muscle recovery..

    What do you think/say?
    "When you promise yourself something, make a commitment, you can't give up. Because, when you're in the gym, you have to fulfill the promise you made to yourself. The people who can self motivate - in any field - are usually the ones who win. Regardless of talent." T. Platz

    i do it every time i lift. I have no problem maintaining muscle or strength but I lose some quality fat by running after I lift. I just do what I feel comfortable doing. Sometimes I'll run 8-10 minute miles, other times I'll only walk on an incline. I figure its good for weight loss since I have eliminated my glycogen from the lifting and my recovery time is great too.
    My journal
    400(335) Bench Press
    600(520x3 2xBW) Dead Lift
    500(495x1) ATG Squat
    Total: 1500(1350)
    365 Front Squat
    consistency and intensity.
