I am on a 3 day split routine (chest and triceps Mondays, back and biceps Wednesdays and shoulders and legs Fridays) with Cardio on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.
I am taking some new suppliments (creatine) that have directions to take on “workout days” so I am trying to figure out if cardio days count or just my lifting days.
Of course it counts! Depending on how much time you have in your schedule, it’s great to have a dedicated day for cardio. Remember, it can be a class like kickboxing or spinning. I think that you can use this opportunity to also focus on stretching or yoga afterwards, centering yourself.
Before taking supplements, I always recommend you find a doctor that is well versed with them and do bloodwork if necessary. They may have other ideas for you to help.
Be proud of yourself for being all over it!
