Build Muscle With Cardio

Often times cardio is thought of as something that hinders muscle gain. However, that doesn’t have to be the case.
__
Implementing higher rep training with fairly short rest periods is a great way to still lift weight, but gain a cardio benefit from it too.
__
Exercises that involve large amounts of muscle such as squat, push press, and farmers carries are great movements to do for this style of training.
__
I would stay away from movements such as deadlifts where from breakdown can lead to injury quite easily.
__
Ready to get started? Here’s how to apply this training:
__
•Pick a movement that utilizes a high amount of muscle such as squat, push press, etc.
•Perform 20-25 reps. Leave a couple reps in the tank, you shouldn’t go to failure on this.
•Repeat for 3-6 sets, resting 60 seconds between sets.
•Rest 5-10 minutes before going on to the next exercise.
__
This style of training works great because it produces tremendous metabolic damage to the muscle from high reps and large amount of muscle used as well as taxing the cardio system from the higher reps.
