Tatiana Answers: On Cardio and Weight Lifting

     As a trainer I always get that question, how many times should I do cardio per week? Depending on your goals, every exercise prescription is different. Let’s talk about burning fat first. You will burn fat during your cardio session.

     You will burn fat during your strength training session but once you are done with training – you will burn an additional 25% of the calories you just burned in that one session. This is called your “EPOC” Excess post-workout oxygen consumption. Yes, HIIT is included in this also!

     If you lift heavier weights and rest of a shorter time period you can boost the percentage of calories being burnt off. The more muscle you have the more calories you are burning on a daily basis. Yes, you can be sitting down on your couch after your workout and still burn calories.

     Cardio is great for your heart and endurance but if you are doing it frequently or intensely it may prevent you from gaining significant muscle mass. Many people ask if you can gain muscle while losing weight and the answer is no. You can’t lose weight and gain muscle at the same time. Muscle actually weighs 15-20% more than fat. You must decide what your goal is first because you can’t do both at the same time. If weight loss is your goal then cardio and HIIT 3-4x a week would be the answer. If you want to gain muscle and get stronger then strength training 4-5x a week would be the answer. 

     Cardio is non-negotiable. Everyone should be doing cardio. It strengthens your heart and decreases the risk of developing a ton of different health conditions. One that includes obesity, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and osteoporosis.

     Strength training is also important especially when you get older. You will need to fight bone loss, muscle loss, and continue to lift weights.

     What is super key in creating your workout schedule – is to find the balance of cardio and strength. Depending on your goals whether to build endurance or strength, design a schedule or program that caters to you!
