Combined Benefits of Cardio and Muscle
How to Properly Do an Aerobic Workout Without Negatively Affecting Gains
Workouts That Will Complement Gains
Not only do these formats of working out improve your endurance, but can be taxing on your muscles, helping to maintain and improve your muscle mass (remember, if you're not overdoing it). Now, circling back to our steady-state cardio, say a jog or low-intensity run, is a great way to actively recover after a tough sprint or HIIT workout. It’s not advisable to do constant HIIT or sprinting — you’ll likely see more negative results when it comes to muscle maintenance and increase your risk of injury. Steady state cardio is a fantastic way to recover while still burning calories and keeping your endurance in check.
