I have heard that doing cardio on an empty stomach when you first wake up will burn a lot of fat as compared to doing cardio a couple hours after your first meal.
I was curious to know if this was true or not, and wether or not cardio on an empty stomach would also burn a lot of muscle?
I have heard that doing cardio after a workout burns more muscle than fat?
And what about on leg days and a day or two after? Would it be bad to do cardio because it wouldn't allow my legs to fully heal or what?
Also, how many days should I do cardio? I have heard that three days of 20 minutes or more each day is enough but I am not sure on this.
And, how much more effective is HIIT cardio then running in the morning, after a workout, or any other time?
I need to do cardio for football conditioning, so I figured I might as well try and burn the most fat and least amount of muscle.
What are your thoughts on this?

Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
