Cardio and Muscle Loss

February 05, 2015

A good cardio workout is a cornerstone of an effective weight loss program, but if you're try to build muscles -- don't overdo it! One of the main culprits in muscle loss can be over-dieting because it suppresses hormones like thyroid and testosterone. However, overdoing cardio workouts can be even more damaging when it comes to hormone suppression! If you do too much cardio, you're essentially lowering hormone levels that allow you to build muscle and burn fat! That's why too much cardio can be a dead end - causing dramatic loss of muscle mass! A good rule of thumb is to try to get in four forty five-minute cardio sessions a week. If you go over that your muscle building goals might be compromised.
