    I only have time to hit up the gym my 4 days that i go, my workouts last about 45minutes to an hour. What is your guys opinion on doing cardio post workout? I was thinking 15 minutes of intervals or Max-OT cardio. Considering my main focus is hypertrophy and doing cardio post workout has been said to be "catabolic", should i consume my PWO shake(protein/high GI carbs) after my weight training/before i start my cardio? It sounds like that would kind of defeat the fat loss process, im stuck, any advice?

    after is fine by me...always have done it that way...closer to my show its both of course. But i always start after my workout. Gets me hungry as well, also if im feeling hypoglycemia coming on i will have a some whey with a gatorade after i train before cardio. Never hindered me

    Same here.

    I have always done it after, and when getting into the last month of a cut, both before and after... As you said, doing cardio after a nice lifting session will really get the appetite going.

    I dont know how the hell you have gatorade right before cardio though. That stuff is so sweet it always makes exercising worse for me.

    If I do cardio directly after lifting I'll down some BCAA's and drink a Gatorade before I do the cardio.

    but thats just me.
