We explore combining cardio/endurance training with lifting weights and wether or not the interference effect is as scary as some may have you believe 'Is Cardio Killing Your Gains?' We take you on a data driven journey from 1980-2022 unpacking all science giving you an insight to where this fear of combing weights and cardio (concurrent training) came from and if by 2022 the pendulum has shifted at all. Some would say it has swung too far.
By the end we come to a pretty solid conclusion and offer some key takeaways (context dependent) that you can use going forward to ensure you get the most out of your training. This involves taking a closer look at CrossFit - a modality that you could argue is inherently concurrent training. Is this a bad thing though? Well, it can be but we provide crucial information to aid in the navigation of the interference effect.
