    ADVICE! doing high cardio and endurance training.....adding weights??

    ok, currently i quit lifting weights. i am diong only high intensity cardio and endurance training. swimming/running/own body weight exercises. i was going to start back lifting again but only 3-4 days a week. the other stuff is 6 days a week. when i was lifting i did high reps low weight. question is, since i'm already doing plenty of my own body weight exercises for muscle endurance, for the weight lifting could i make it 3-4 days of heavy weight/ low reps to add on the muscle while the cardio and endurance is shredding the body fat. or should i stick to low weight high reps.....

    comments and thoughts on that please....

    Re: ADVICE! doing high cardio and endurance training.....adding weights??

    You need to put stress on your muscles from them to build, cause your muscles rip, and they take all the nutrients like fat and protein and build them bigger. Heavy weights and low reps are what I think considered better for strength and muscle mass. High reps and low weights mostly build up muscle endurance and tone and give the muscles definition(Heavy weights also give defintion). The only way to make them really grow is to rip them(Heavy weights that you can handle ofcourse) Muscles need more than just the same weight all the time also.. They adapt to the weight that you are currently using, so change it up about 1-2 weeks at a time

    You could also do some pylometrics, really helps strengthen the muscles, alot of atheletes do it.
