  • Endurance Cardio along with resistance training

    Hi doctors, lately I've been wondering if doing endurance type of cardio (i.e running) could have any detriments to hypertrophy/strength adaptations or outcomes. For a quite while I've been engaged with this type or cardio, weekly runs of about 10-15km at about 70-85% of max heart beat. So my question, can I see better strength/hypertrophy gains if I quit doing this type of cardio or it doesn't have any effect?
    Thanks.

    Yes, if done with too much volume it can negatively influence strength and hypertrophy outcomes.

      Thank you Jordan, and this 'too much volume' is dependent on the individual?, my question is more exactly, how can one know how much is too much?

    It definitely depends on the previous levels of training-so yes I would agree it depends on the individual.

    For a newer lifter or someone green to conditioning, I think the data suggests <30 min per session <3x/wk is what you can get away with before it negatively impacts strength and hypertrophy outcomes. That said, we typically start at 1-2 sessions per week and titrate up from there.

      So to summarize this, you think that I, that have been running consistently for about 1-2 years every week about 10-15km, could expect not to see any impacts on my resistance training?

        Not any new impacts, no.
