  • Is it too much...

    Is it too much to do morning cardio (about an hour) and then lift in the evening, and then back to morning cardio the next day?

    I figure on lifting MWF (decided on the 5x5) and I am already doing the cardio in the mornings. I have a teenage friend of the family that is getting ready for Navy reserve basic training this summer, and wants me to help her workout. She goes to a different gym, so now I have 2 memberships lol.

    Anyhow, I decided to do the 5x5 and have her work with me, but doing different stuff. I am just wondering if its ok this early in my working out to be doing doubles? Or am I going to just burn out, get frustrated and quit? I am making myself get up an go tomorrow, cause I need to.

    Basically, I am asking what kind of schedule is good for a (beginner I guess).

          Assuming your recovery's on point (food, supps, sleep) you should be fine.

          If you eat like a bird, smoke/drink more than occasionally, stay up late, etc. Then you might run into problems. Heed my experience.

          You'll know pretty easily and quickly...not progressing on numbers, no appetite, getting the cold more frequently, trouble sleeping, etc.

                Thanks for this i honestly though that would be too much but guess a clean and healthy lifestyle makes it easier!

                  Well, let me say that I don't eat like a bird, or smoke. I do drink a beer here and there, but if I do its on the weekend. I am usually in bed by 11:30 and it makes it hard to get up at 5:30!

                  Either way, thanks for the answers. I was tired as hell this morning, but I dragged my ass to the gym for 50 min cardio. My legs feel all wobbly from the squats last night and walking is really fun! lol

                      Right now? it hurts haha! I am not sure really though. I have never done 2 workouts in a day before (cardio morning, weights night). I think for me the best way is to play it by ear. I may not be able to do it 3x a week at the start, but I hope to be able to up the frequency as time goes on.

                      I think I will play it by ear, and see how my body feels. Granted, the first few weeks I think I will feel like shit...weak and wobbly, until my body adapts. Hopefully after that it won't be so painful!
