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.
Workout days, for me, is every day you engage in a planned fitness routine. Cardio-only day is one.
“Creatine is a natural substance found in our muscle cells, especially around the skeletal muscle (about 95% of the body’s creatine supply) with the remaining 5% stored in other parts of the body. Creatine is a metabolite produced in the body which mainly consists of three amino acids – methionine, arginine, and glycine…We can also get creatine by taking it as a dietary supplement…Creatine monohydrate is a dietary supplement that athletes and many bodybuilders use to increase high intensity exercise performance, increase strength, have fuller looking muscles, increase body mass and have faster post workout muscle recovery.” -http://www.creatine-monohydrate.org/
When I do Cardio, I work it intensly from 30 to 60 minutes. Don’t take Cardio lightly, work it…
