Allright, another JHR article! I think its awesome you guys are able to publish this while still maintaining such demanding schedules as full time bodybuilders and PhD candidates.

So this is what I gathered (hopefully correctly):
-endurance cardio (LI) can decrease motor unit recruitment
-<70% max HR cardio elevates cortisol
-cardio on the same day as weights can lower protein synthesis
-overtraining is achieved after 5 weeks of concurrent training

Assuming this is all correct, then would it be best to do HIIT cardio on a rest day and follow it with some carbs for an insulin response? Also, I believe Pres mentioned once that cardio is leucine wasting. So would you want a similar pwo shake for cardio as you would resistance training (ie BCAA's, simple sugars)?
I forge myself in the fire of my own will
