    Cardio before/on off days vs. post-weights

    Is there any significant difference in results seen from cardio after lifting vs prior to or on off days? I'm talking steady state fast walking or running, not HIIT or sprinting or anything. I usually try to run post-weights because glycogen already burned, energy from fat stores etc. etc. but I might not be able to continue that habit for a while due to a city curfew ordinance just enacted. My schedule prevents me from lifting earlier, but I can get outside for cardio earlier. Should I compensate by assuming my TDEE is lower?

    Or, is there anything I can do inside or in the yard for cardio that isn't as boring and torturous as running in place that uses the same amount of energy or close? Sets of AMRAP body weight squats for 20 minutes or is that going to mess with leg day tomorrow?

    Personally, I lift for an hour on Mon/Wed/Fri and do an hour to an hour and a half of dedicated cardio (XC cycling) on Tue/Thur/Sat along with basically getting in 10,000 steps all seven days/week.

    But, I'm also in my 50's and tire easily.

    Hm yeah no I didn't think about the fact that my quads tire before my heart. Lol.

    Aside from worrying about not burning fat I'm just insanely restless. Need to get at least a walk in after workouts. ****.

    I never had the need to designate time slots to cardio because I live such an active lifestyle. The Health app logged several miles and sets of stairs throughout the day, and all I was doing was going about my life.. but then lockdown happened. I'd always run or walk home from the gym so I'm just trying to keep up with that (for more distance). Really simple stuff, but my general activity level had been good enough to keep my TDEE sky high while leaning out and gaining mass at the same time.

    You can try jumping rope. It helps build stamina, coordination, power output (SIT), rhythm (fancy footwork) and burns a good amount of calories in a shorter period of time than most other cardio. Or at least, that's the rumor.

    And all you need is a speed rope or beaded rope (beaded for the more advanced/experienced). But it can be high impact. I don't recommend jumping rope to people who have issues with their knees or other joint issues.
    Fact: My first-generation uncle was a boxer who fought Sugar Ray Robinson! He also fought in the war, sacrificing the career he deeply loved, so people could have the right to freedom.

    "Lockdown" here in Houston TX doesn't prohibit going out for walks on the street or jogging/cycling in the parks so as far as cardio options go the only negative is the heat here outdoors (which can be oppressive) however I have lived in this climate my whole life and am used to spending 60-90 minute out cycling in 90-100+ degree temperatures.

    I do have patellar tendinitis, ha... maybe I can find something around the home (no jump rope to speak of) to give it a trial run?

    COVID lockdown has no restrictions on outdoor exercise either, but curfew in response to the protests does. I don't mind the heat so much, and it is /humid/ as all hell when the temps shoot up here. The cold is what gets me... Chicago is mean.

    Depends on your lifting schedule/caloric intake. I wouldn’t do cardio before lifting. Cardio after is fine unless you’re in a huge deficit. Off days are always ok in my book.
