I will use my 3 off days from lifting to do my cardio workouts. I will incorporate anaerobic exercises along with the aerobic routine. This will allow me to breathe more efficiently when lifting and is also an effective way to maintain my current body composition without simply bulking up. Wednesdays and Saturdays are more intense workouts, as...
