posted this in the workout programs section but since I like the knowledge of the guys over here, ill post here too. So I've been doing two-a-days, lifting in the morning, and LISS at night. My question is this. Ive read that you need at least 6-8 hours in between sessions in the same day, but that seems to be heard toward cardio in am, lifting at night, so you have enough energy for your weight training at night. If i do it the other way around, can i go back for cardio in say 3-4 hours? I'm not worried about not having energy for cardio cause it's only LISS, but will it affect me in a negative way if I don't wait long enough? Any advice would be appreciated.

Are you eating enough to account for the additional activity?

Why are you doing so much cardio?

cardio first thing in morning is best, it burns more fat , from your glycogen stores which havent ate anything for quite some time. I use bcaa's and some other supplements first thing then get cardio done. You dont havw to wait 6-8 hours, youi can though, the time in between is to get more food in for energy to fuel your workout.

There's no science to back up the idea that fasted cardio is better for fat loss that I know of. It still comes down to your overall calorie deficit.

I believe i'm eating enough to account for it, i don't count calories exactly but my weight is hovering around the same/slightly going up. The reason I'm doing extra cardio is because I'm out of work a the moment and i do nothing all day but eat and recover, so I've been lifting in the morning and doing LISS at night.

I find I have much better workouts when I lift after waking up and having a good meal. If i wait8 or 10 hours after i wake up I don't put as much into my weights. Id rather do the LISS at night because i don't need a ton of energy to do it.

I understand that, but the post wasn't about losing fat, it was about the timing between lifting and cardio. has nothing to do with caloric intake

With it being low intensity cardio, I don't think the time to wait is a huge deal.
