The Secret to Balancing Strength Training and Cardio

Please follow and like us:

“Contrary to what’s been preached in the past, lifting and running complement each other quite well,” says Jay Dicharry, P.T., director of the REP lab in Bend, OR.

In fact, lifting on the same day as running can improve your running results. But that requires a lot of time. So try to schedule your workouts so they don’t clash. “Peak soreness from weightlifting happens about 24 to 48 hours following your strength session,” notes Dicharry.

To balance both, keep hard runs 48 hours apart from hard gym sessions so you can give it your all during the run, he adds. If you still want to run the day or two after your leg day, keep it light—doing an easy run can actually promote active recovery.

In life you’re givin options: 👀👇🏼

- TAG SOMEONE YOU WANT TO MOTIVATE -

You can choose to profit from life or be destroyed by it. You can choose to focus on what’s tearing you apart or what’s holding you together. You can either step forward into growth or step backwards into safety. With everything that’s happened to you.. with every hardship, heartbreak or pain that you’ve been through.. you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is an opportunity for additional strength built into your soul. Strength that is only learned from picking yourself back up and making yourself strong again. Time will pass as times does but as time goes on your inner strength should always be building. Take control and choose to focus on what’s important in your life. 🌈✨♥️❤️
