Cardio Interference

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

Studies show that adding too much cardio to a strength training program may interfere with strength and size gains. This study showed that adding cardio to a strength training program resulted in negative gains in muscle power over 21-weeks. Reducing muscle power can lead to lower weights used during sets which can negatively impact strength and size gains. Check out my post tomorrow to see how you can avoid this!
