Tip #6 Avoid Excessive Cardio
Generally speaking, endurance athletes and strength/hypertrophy athletes are on opposite ends of the spectrum. Few people can master both, and asking your body to adapt to two stimuli that have opposite needs may be too much. If you are still unsure, compare the physiques of marathon runners to that of their short-distance-sprinting peers.
Intense cardio sessions like HIIT are well-suited for maintaining muscularity. If you’d like to implement cardio into your training routine, intervals are probably your best bet. This type of training will provide the base of your metabolic conditioning without robbing you of your muscularity.
And don’t worry, data has demonstrated that training at distances as short as 400 meters can improve mile times. Avoid steady-state cardio-it’s not going to help you gain size.
