Since I’ve been doing the workout thing for more than a year now. I’ve noticed muscle gains, but I also noticed my body fat loss kinda plateaued.  After talking to a few people, I found that I may need to kick in some cardio. I hit the net, and this is what I found.

The philosophy behind fat loss and cardio. The overall goal is to burn more calories than you take in. If your goal is fat loss, incorporate 4-6, 30-60-minute cardio sessions per week into your training schedule. The best time to do cardio would be in the morning before eating breakfast. Your body will have to burn fat for energy since your glycogen stores have been depleted. If you aren’t dedicated to waking up before work to do some form of cardio, doing it after weight training is the next best option, because, well, hopefully you’ve depleted you glycogen stores lifting.
