    Well buddy I am doing the same thing, but I am training 4 days a week and doing cardio 6 days a week, and its working our great, I actually have more energy during the day due to my workouts being shorter with this split I am doing, but the fat has been coming off...

      Cardio always makes you feel better that is for sure, kind of a high of sorts when you are done... It is not the greatest thing in the world post workout when you are trying to add size and strenght though, I will say that.

        Well actually I am wasted after training then doing cardio, but the next day I feel pretty damn good...

          Raul, you know I was doing that a couple weeks ago when I first started cutting, but I honestly thought I was losing too much energy throughout the day. I did the same thing as you, did my workout and then jumped on the treadmill for some walking at around 3mph.

          That's great that it's working for you though, it just drained too much out of me. Then again I am cruising and the post workout/cardio shake only had around 25g carbs. That could definitely be a big reason. I may start back up with this way when my next blast comes around, but for right now I'm enjoying my cardio in the morning with just a shake in me

            You have a point on the size thing, but when you are carring to much BF it does help burn more fat due to being so carb depleted, it is best to break up the two times throughout the day...

              I know if I was still doing the 3 day split there is no way I would be able to do cardio after training, I would need a protein shake for sure, but the 4 day split is nice and fun...

                The experiment i want to see if how much doing 30 minutes cardio after workout really affects your size and strength gains , so far good results.
                True, I did not mention that is the one day I do not do cardio after training is leg day, I will do my cardio am instead...

                  I am surprised that you guys can do cardio right after training. I am spent right after doing either workout since I finish with back thickness or quads. I calmly roll back to the car and head out of the gym. Additionally, I REALLY need the post workout shake and the more I postpone it the worse I feel. I do my cardio in the morning and if I am pressed for time in the morning right after work or right after school when I am pretty hugry/depleted. Oh, since I have recumbent bike in the house I also try doing some ultra low intensity cardio while watching a movie or reading -- on my days off.

                    I am no slouch in the gym when it comes to lifting weight or intensity, I have an above normal recouperation ability and I have to do what I need to do, and as I said I could only do this while doing the 4 day split...

                      Raul, Maybe we should point out that it is a modified 4 day split and not the normal 4 day split...

I am short on time now with university and lots of studying so I have to try and compress time as much as I can. If I am on a week that has 2 legs day as you guys know, I have to either do it in the morning or do it the other day after a leg workout but I can't do cardio on legs day , is definitely not for me. But when I hit a week where I have 2 chest workouts , then I can defintely jump in the treadmill and get my 30 minutes cardio and im done.
                        Raul, I work full time and I am a full time engineering grad student (almost done) -- on top of that I have a life and hobbies unrelated to weightlifting. So $400 investment for a schwin recumbent bike was one of the best ones this year. I would highly recomend it as it saves me a lot of time.

                          I certainly did not imply that--slouch. I meant to say that I would have a hard time doing cardio after getting done with deadlifts or, latelly, chest. Side note, latelly I have been pushing chest more than anything else as it is one of my weaker body parts. The last rep of either rest pause mini-set takes usully more than 10 seconds on the way up--only once have I faltered so far to get it up. But, that is not the hardest part. The hardest part is what follows--fighting the urge to throw up/faint/collapse from the bench. It takes about 10 minutes to recollect my thoughts/meditate.

                            No no, I understand, I was making a point cause I lift some heavy weights and I am still able to do cardio after my workouts...
