Should One Attempt Cardio and Strength Training on the Same Day?

by Lawrence Neal, Strength Training Expert
February 22, 2019

Question: Is it wise to do cardio and strength training on the same day?

Answer:

This question is based on a false assumption. Strength training is cardio in that strength training will improve cardiovascular fitness just as much as steady state exercise like jogging, swimming, etc. If one wants to do "cardio" after strength training, that's totally fine, however, if you're strength training with a high degree of effort, and ideally, to muscular failure, you shouldn't have the inclination to WANT to do more exercise.
