Question & Answers, with Muscle & Fitness

Question: I want to build strength. Is running before my workouts a bad idea?

Answer: I suggest running after you train. While five to ten minutes of low intensity running is a decent warm-up, cardio sessions that last longer than five minutes pre-workout can lead to muscular fatigue and use up energy stored that could play a huge role in helping your push more weight and attain new PRs.
