Fitness is not a destination, its a lifestyle

My program has been working perfectly for me. But then, i want to add more into my routine and ramp it up.

Question though: cardio before or after lifting? Also, dapat ba talaga hiwalay, like cardio in the morning and weights sa gabi?

    Base po sasinabi niyo twice kayo nagwoworkout in 1day? Morning and gabi? If yes, sa morning cardio sa gabi lifting po. Or kung gusto niyo magloose ng weight before lifting cardio and after lifting cardio ulet :)

    Napansin ko lang po Thursday to Tuesday and Wed. correct me if im wrong lahat po ito cardio? so araw araw po cardio?

    or Tues to Thurs lang ang cardio?

    Hi SmallW. Everyday ako na workout. Every morning from Monday to Sunday except Wednesday.

    Routine ko is:
    Monday every morning = 20-25 mins cardio and then lifts
    Tuesday morning = 20-25 mins cardio and then lifts; evening = boxing
    Wednesday morning = 20-25 mins cardio (recovery day)
    Thursday morning = 20-25 mins cardio and then lifts
    Friday morning = 20-25 mins cardio and then lifts
    Saturday morning = 20-25 mins cardio and then lifts; evening = boxing
    Sunday on my own time = 20-25 mins cardio and then lifts

    Monday to Friday workouts are done early in the morning at 6 am. All my cardio are high intensity interval training, while yung weight training is a metabolic resistance training. Works for me kasi i only have around 2 hours sa morning, before i go to prep for work.

    Pero i am to change my program na naman, so inisiip kong gawing = morning hiit cardio only; evening non-mrt lifting + regular cardio. pero magiging once a week na lang boxing ko if ganun.

    Thanks sa welcome ulit emman. As mentioned sa taas, cardio ako bago weights. Since I am to change my program na starting this week, kahapon ni-test run ko siya. Tapos nag weights muna ako bago cardio. Kahit nadagdagan sets ko, i was still able push my cardio performance +25%! Loved it! pero tingnan ko this week if ganun talaga, baka naka-chamba lang ako kahapon.

    hindi pa naman ako ganun ka ripped sa core ko. but defined muscles ko sa legs :-/ yung picture saka na pag medyo comfy na ako. haha :P

    Suggestion ko lang is continue your routine but on lifting days unahin mo yung resistance training then do the cardio after. Kung MRT, for me ok na kahit walang cardio after kung minimum 1 hour naman yung workout mo with. IMO enough na yun na metabolic booster for the entire day. If you plan to include a different lifting style you can insert the cardio after weights. Yung sa Tuesday schedule, for me kahit weights in the morning na lang since may boxing ka naman sa gabi. :)

    ^ Women need more cardio than men when leaning out. "Too much" will depend on how you push your workout on a daily basis or every session. If the intensity varies from WO to WO, kunyari you have 2 high intensity days, 3 moderate intesity, 2 low intensity training in a week recovery might not be 100% but enough to make good improvements. Ofcourse this will depend on your personal goals, this kind of approach to training is not for the pure bodybuilders who are looking to make the best possible muscle gains. Mas applicale to sa mga fitness enthusiasts who have other other goals. About cardio, kung all out sprints and other intense cardio activities everyday yun ang too much. kung walking, running, stationary biking, parang hindi na nga yan considered workout/exercise. Pandagdag na lang sila sa activity level mo for the day. Mas nakakapagod pa nga maglinis ng bahay hahaha :)

    Thanks for the feedback ^_^

    i am not purely into bodybuilding. I am also into cardiovascular performance and muscular endurance, in addition to getting lean and dropping body fat%

    My cardio routine is a high intensity interval training, it alternates aerobic and anaerobic training. I push myself to my limits lagi, but i make sure i dont do this for more than 25 mins, or else its excessive na. Not to mention i am diabetic so, i do my training properly. To be honest, my cardio is not a problem. I can still do more. Nasanay na body ko sa intensity ng training ko, thats why i keeping looking for more (i plan to add circuit plyo soon). I am that addicted to cardio :-/

    So compared to cardio training, i am relatively new sa weight training ^_^

    Sa lifts naman, it lasts one and a half hour usually. I am doing paired set ngayon, I limit cycles to a maximum of about 8 weeks then i change. so far, i believe my program works naman, pero i am not that knowledgeable of weight training so sometimes i am not confident about it. maybe you wanna check it for me?

    Oh! and the reason i choose boxing to supplement my routine is for its intensity and because is an upper body workout. If possible, i would like to focus on my core and upper bod, kasi medyo defined na kasi legs ko.

    For me, cardio is a lifestyle na, nasanay na ako. Yeap my muscle screams, but then it passes, so nothing is too much unless himitayin na ako -_-

    Goal na body? I just want to lower my body fat % and get my back and core ripped. but looking like her wont hurt :D

    @carla - Okay lang yun. Just trust your process. For sure mahahabol mo yang goal mo. You look serious and dedicated naman sa lifestyle/sports na to. :)

    Thank you @lazar :)

    @josephpresto yan sa avatar na lang, that was taken last month naman eh :P I am not shredded (as i wanna be) :P

    I track my body fat monthly (instead of my weight). I dropped another 1.06% last month. Yey! :yahoo:

    Since I overstrained my illiotic band two weeks ago, and trying to make sure it won’t blow into a full IBS, I changed my routine halfway through my cycle. I am now taking it easy for the next 4 weeks (until hopefully its pain free na). =(

    So now, my program looks like:
    MWF - high intensity interval sprints cardio
    TThS – full upper body circuit
    I still workout in the mornings, under fasted state. While sundays are recovery days, so I get to choose either a sport or a steady state cardio, and it should be done any time before the evening.

    It’s really hard staying away from squats and lunges, harder not being about to run and sprint every day. I can still use my leg naman, but I don’t want to end up tearing too. So, I have to train smart if I want my IB to heal.
