    So I added a 10 min. run after the weight lifting.

    But I also have 3 days out of six in the gym when I run. Am I runing to much???? Some of the real big guys in my gym never run as far as I have seen???

    thanks

    if you are looking to burn fat, its better to do longer times at a more moderate pace then a short time at a fast pace. a good 30-45 min jog will burn fat, whereas a 100m sprint will use up glucose (something like that, feel free to correct).

    Doesn't really matter; you burn more calories period with higher intensities of exercise. So if you'd do 10 minutes of sprints vs. a 30 minute run, that's up to you and your training goals.

    If you really like to run and you want to work on it separate from your lifting, put them either on different days or separate them into morning/evening sessions.

    so, from strickly a calorie perspective, which burns more? runing 1 mile at a 6min/mile pace or doing 2 miles at a 12 min/mile pace?

    i was under the impression, that walking a mile vs running a mile burned about the same number of calories.

    No that's not ture. Read about HIT.

    I run 20 min 3xs a week. I started to run on my lift days to now for about 10min after lifting. Am I runing to much??? I can't split my day because of time and work.

    Higher bursts of intensity burn more combined calories(carbs/fats), lower energy requirements allow the body to burn fat as the major fuel requirement.

    5 to 6 days of running isn't bad unless you are running for distance.

    If you're running for time say 20 or 30min then 3 to 4 times a week is fine.
    10min of jogging isn't bad at all esp. if you're lifting.

    I jog "before" I lift and then some days are just straight cardio days.

    Coming up in July I'll be jogging about 4 times a week with my jogs for distance on Saturday mornings.

    :eek4:

    I don't even think I get up to those min. during my training jogs (max for time is usually 45min). The group jogs last over an hour or so depending on mileage.

    to anyone- Does it make THAT much of a difference if you jog before or after lifting? I always do it before. :dunno:

    i hate cardio with a passion, i am usually cussing and grunting in my head for those 50 mins.

    i always do my cardio after for a couple of reasons, if i do it before i dont have enough energy to lift at what i normally would, and i have always just heard it is better to after

    well, I can see why you wouldn't have much energy doing 50min. :sad2: depending on your pace and all.

    seems like most bodybuilder/people who are bulking prefer "after" and most joggers prefer to run "before" :mamoru:

    My longer jogging days ( which is usually once a week-Saturday's- ex. a 6 mile jog) will not be followed by weights :o

    He stated that he's running/jogging. I don't know his pace. I mean you can jog for 50min at a 13 or 15min/mile pace and be "ok" that's really slow, but it's cardio :o

    even when i didnt do 50 i would do it after. my main objective is lifting and getting stronger so i do that first when i am at 100%.

    i keep my heart rate steady at 128-135. it takes a lot of effort for me to get my heart rate up. my timed pace is 8-9min/mile to keep my heart there
