Doing long, slow cardio
Not all cardio is created equal. If you are slogging away for hours jogging or walking on a treadmill, you may actually be hurting your strength gains. One study found that combined strength and endurance training can suppress some of the adaptations to strength training. So, how do you get your cardio in without hurting strength gains? The answer lies in high intensity interval training, or HIIT. HIIT can give you a superior cardiovascular workout while preserving muscle mass and strength.
