    Eating Immediately After Lifting But Before Cardio

    Hi All,

    I do cardio immediately after I finish lifting and my trainer wants me to consume something as little as an apple or banana before I do cardio. According to him my gains doing lifting will go to waste if I do cardio without eating something first. Do you think he is right? I usually complete my workout (lifting and cardio) and then have a hearty meal with proteins and carbs.

    Your trainer's an idiot. Something like a banana could be useful before cardio just as a away to get some energy back, but your gains are fine either way.

    Well maybe if you were going from an intense training session to doing like a 10 mile run... but even then it'd be a question of having a little protein afterward the weights.

    That being said, 'wasted' progress? No... just sub-optimal.
    The power of carbs compels me!

    As an aside to all this, OP, trainers want to make you think they hold some special voodoo knowledge that makes em special. They aren't in most cases. There is no magic to any of this. A well balanced diet with the proper calories on a daily basis is all you need to know. Everything else is just noise. Generally these people aren't well versed in nutrition. If a trainer motivates you to workout then more power to em however on the diet end don't listen to things that are too absolute

    Are you doing a heavy leg workout before intense cardio? That would be suboptimal and eating a banana won't change that.
