    Can I split the workout in the morning and evening? ba cq

    We have a new fitness program in our company and we were all required to partake its a Zumba class every morning before work. But Ive researched that in order to lose weight it must be a combination of Cardio and Strength training.

    Im planning to do the strength training after work. Would it be possible? Is it effective to lose weight with that kind of program? Thank you.

    I don't think it's fair to say you must do a specific combination to lose weight, but combining cardio and strength can certainly be an effective way if done properly. I don't see any reason why splitting the workouts up that way wouldn't work. I don't know that it would be any more or less effective, and you need to take into account your specific level of fitness, making sure to not over do it, but in general I would say it could work for sure.

      In order to lose weight, you should have a look at your nutrition. Doing more exercises can help, if you can manage to stay in a caloric deficit, but it can also lead to more appatite, and therefore to a smaller deficit or even a surplus.
      Nutrition is the mayor key to weight loss, exercises are the little helper.

        I understand now. Oh, that's why I'm having a hard time to lose weight because I thought exercising, has a bigger role than my diet. I'm dying with my low carb diet. Hahahahah ! Thank you!

        I just asked. Because I have a very limited time in the morning and in the evening. At least Im really determined to do my workout inspite of very busy day as a volunteer firefighter.

          HellYeah can I also do HIIT in the morning then Weightlifting in the evening?

          Because some articles said that I cannot do HIIT and Weightlifting on the same day. 🙂

            I try to do cardio/aerobic workouts in the morning and heavier/resistance/weights at night. The cardio/aerobic stuff feels more important for my overall health (also wakes me up more than strength focus).

              I have neither enough knowledge, nor enough experience, when ir comes to HIIT. But for what I know HIIT can (or should?) involve strengh based exercises and it should be done as intense/fast as possible (without breaking form).

              The recommendation is to rest after HIIT as long as you need, to recover (the muscles you worked). Recovery is a very big part of fitness, and very important if you wanna have fun in the long term. In my opinion, it is better to do a flexibilit/mobility workout as second workout, and let your muscles recover.

              Listen to your body: start slow and add more over time, if your body allows it. Being fit and strong is a marathon, not a sprint.
              (This last one goes out to myself, too)

                HellYeah I understand. I need to workout to lower my blood cholesterol. 😅 Since I only have 30 mins. to exercise in the morning, thrice a week. I'm thinking about to do HIIT a short workout but intense.

                "Listen to your body: start slow and add more over time, if your body allows it. Being fit and strong is a marathon, not a sprint." Yes, it's true. Maybe I could do both but not consecutively. I'll do the weights at night. Lets see! Thank you!👍

                oneironaut exactly. Im doing cardio first to wake me up 😂 and I really feel very energetic in the morning. Thanks for the input. 🙂

                  keens I lost 50 lb doing cardio, 2 mile rapid walk, at lunch time every day, then 45 minutes of resistance training 3 days per week. So, yes, you can separate the cardio and the strength training. Just make sure you give your muscles sufficient recovery time after your strength training. Minimum of one days rest is recommended to allow for healing to take place in the exercised muscles. I walked everyday ( 4 - 5 mph) and did strength training on Monday, Wednesday & Friday. May thing is to just do it. Oh and you caloric deficit is what causes weight loss. Gotta change the old eating regimen if you seriously want to lose weight.
