    Is it generally a bad idea? I didn't think this was true but someone tried telling me this today.

    I doubt it. Why would it?

    I pretty much already knew the answer I just want him to read responses, not to say that I'm not open for a surprise answer.

    I like to do the elliptical for a little while after a workout, I feel the arm motion helps me recover. I don't go at a very hard pace.

    if you do cardio on your lifting days make sure it is post-workout and make sure you still have your post workout shake consisting of carbs+protein right after your done lifting before you do cardio...

    you'll lose an excessive amout of mass if you continue to do cardio after lifting for a prolonged period of time (weeks to months) without giving yourself any protein and carbs after lifting.
