thats good news. I typically do my cardio sessions on mon and fri, which are both upper body days, and do my legs on wednesday. If I read what you said right, there should be minimal/no interference, right?

So if cardio is done on the same day, the reccomendation would be to do lower intensity, less glycogen depleting training.
The glycogen depletion is what makes me a bit hesitant to do pm lifting following am cardio. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it typically takes only 6 hours to renew glycogen stores (using proper pwo nutrition). Also, I believe a good shot of caffeine pwo will help glycogen uptake allowing this am/pm session split to work my feasibly.

Precisely on everything you said my man! With the PW shake I saw you had the other day then you will definately replenish your glycogen stores in 6 hours
