    Question Cardio everyday

    Hi guys,
    Just wondering whether I could do cardio everyday simply due to the fact that I prefer to eat more rather than eat less? I work a sedentary job and lift 4x a week. I’m not looking to cut any weight but feel as I should do cardio for health benefits but also because it just generally makes me feel good and clears my head.
    Is this ok?

    Sure, although increase how much you eat and adjust your cardio if you notice you start to lose weight or your muscle gains being affected - assuming you don’t want either to happen.

    If you mean any type of intense or long cardio you may want to take one or two days off a week depending on how your body responds, and you may want to have a good amount of time in between cardio and weights (e.g. morning and evening) on days you do both.

    That sounds reasonable as an every day cardio routine with weights.

    Still try to do them separately from your weights if you can - if not, do them together since it doesn’t sound that heavy (personally I would do cardio second, but some like it first) and see how it goes.

    Yeah I’ll either run in the evenings or do some walking straight after weights. Out of interest, do you have a cardio routine?

    Nothing I would consider a strict routine. Spinning or sports on a day without weights, or 15-20 mins on elliptical or stationary bike after weights.

    You need to be able to measure its effects to answer that - but it doesn't have a direct influence on body composition goals so I don't know how you do that.

    If you have some metric by which to measure it, I would say maximise that without compromising your main training goals. The exact amount depends on your individual level of conditioning.
