Make Those Mitochondria Burn Fat

Do your cardio after you Lift Weights here’s why

After you lift weights your glycogen stores (muscles stored sugar) are depleted.  As a result your mitochondria is forced to us fat as an energy source since you burned up the sugar.

If you’ve ever read any muscle magazines many of the bodybuilders employ this technique in order to maintain low body fat.

Make sure you stay hydrated and I don’t recommend doing more than thirty minutes of cardio.
