Cardio lead to drop in strength ?


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Cardio lead to drop in strength ? within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: Its been a while since I've done a big cardio day, so I did 90 mins on the bike yesterday. Today I was definitely a little depleted and felt flat, but holy crap, my strength dropped a solid 5-10%. When it comes time to a contest prep what do you guys do to maintain strength? I know that I'll be doing a lot of cardio and low on carbs, so I know I will lose some, but I just didn't expect that much of a drop from one friggin day!

    I always recommend sticking with cardio. You don't need marathon sessions, but you want to stay healthy

    It'll be the 90 minutes. That's a LOT!

    if you compete in powerlifting then simply do your lifting first, then do your cardio.

    don't go balls to the wall on both though. stick to what you want to be great at and focus on that

    90 minutes is ridiculous and definitely not necessary.

    You probably overdid the cardio without proper glycogen replenishment. That will give a performance loss

    In the short term, concurrent training (cardio and lifting together) is about 31% less effective for hypertrophy, and about 18% less effective for strength.
