    Hey Joe I was wondering what you think of cardio programs along with a Lower,Push,Pull,Off split. I am thinking of adding in a 30 minute HIIT program soley to burn more calories as well as improve stamina. I would like to know your opinion on it to be more specific it would be a beachbody program T25 which consists of bodyweight exercises. In your opinion is this a good option for cardio or is a bike better? Appreciate the feedback and Love The Content and App

    If you do choose to do HIIT as a form of training realize it is very metabolic. I would limit metabolic work in your training. I would also choose applications that have very little eccentrics loaded. This is why I don’t advise body weight training as “extra” work. Instead bike, sled pushes seem to be easy choices. And, do t underestimate the how great simple LISS walking can be.

    Just to second what Bryce said (which was spot on), the ONLY forms of cardio I’ve used the past 2 years are HIIT on a spin bike (one I have at home) and walking. Like Bryce said, especially now, lots of walking is a great way to get lean without losing muscles. And the combo of the two is great (like you said, the spin bike will improve gym performance- done properly).

    Hey thank you again for the feedback I’m looking into getting a bike I can set up at home and for now I will have to settle for the one at the gym. I luckily still have access to a gym and while ot may not have every piece of equipment I am used to during these times it is the Gold Standard of Gyms I wish you both well and your families during these times

    Is their a cardio section within the app for different HIIT routines? Trying to find your general guidelines on cardio and how to incorporate into your 6 week program. Thanks.

    I don’t have a dedicated section/video for it (added to the list!). The short answer, the exact type is dictated mainly by personal preference. So if the goal is just a little more calorie expenditure, whatever you like best (steady state, HIT, whatever). If you’re in a surplus or “off season” I slightly prefer HIT as it will have more carry over to benefiting your training. And for health, I would just say keep it at 3 times a week minimum

    Thank you. Maybe in nerd section talk about different energy systems and how they can each help with different goals. Great app.
