Hiking for Cardio!

How do I stay lean and muscular? Hiking?

Yep! Every morning I start my day with an hour uphill hike. I must first stop the fasting process after getting my 8 hours of sleep needed to rest and recover from intense weight training.

First this first, I don't recommend doing cardiovascular on an empty stomach. You don't lift weights on an empty stomach do you? What about sports that you participate in, do you fast before a sport?!!! NO!

Stop the fast with a medium size drink of protein and carbohydrates. Now you are training your metabolism to start sooner and have a more intense workout!

Start your cardiovascular activity early but don't forget to fuel your muscles!
