Running?

Does anyone in here run along with their weight program? i have been for about the past three weeks and I am up to about a mile and a half to two miles every morning. Then i go lift after work for about an hour and a half. Anyone had good luck with this?

Last summer I'd jog for 45 minutes in the morning and do another 30 on the elliptical after my workout. The fat dissappeared quickly, but so did some size and alot of strength (too much IMO). I think running is great to get lean, but there is such a thing as too much when you are concerned with size. The only way I've found to lean out without sacrificing muscle is to keep the cardio moderate, watch what I eat, and lose the bodyfat slowly.

what do you consider moderate? Is a two miles a day after your lifting too much?

That's what I usually do, but only 3 days out of the week. I workout 6 days, so I take a day off every other day from cardio...

Whatcha think?

I go for 30 minutes a day and an hour on days I don't train. It's been a slow going process, but I'm happy report that barely any size or strength has been sacrificed in the past month of dieting.

It is all about calories. For some, running for 15 minutes creates enough of a caloric deficet to lose bodyfat. For others it takes 30 minutes. Just depends on how much you take in throughout the day. You should burn just a little more than you take in (500 calories max) per day to lose BF correctly and not lose lean muscle. It is a very delicate balance.

I just found this board and am new to this site in general. Good to see some people concerned about their health as well as their cars. I will help out whenever I can (do this for a living).

Most of my clients average right around 1.5 pounds per week if they eat what i tell them and show up for their workouts.

Thumbs up

I plan on running at least 5 a day on my off days...if I'd ever get off my ass and start working out/running again...running when you aren't forced to do it 70 miles a week RULES!

It's going to be hard to find the right balance for cardio. The last thing I want to do is lose the muscle that was so hard for me to attain. I think I'm going to bump it up a little bit, and eat even more protein since I'm still trying to gain. One of these days I'll actually learn to use a treadmill. =)

You have to RUN YOUR ASS OFF to lose muscle.

Its all about how much weight you carry versus how long you run and at what speed. I only run about 2 miles at 6.5 mph at most...slowly getting faster but i weigh 210 lbs. For someone who wieghs 160 that isn't even going to get them breathing hard if they are in decent shape. I seem to get a pretty good workout out of it and I haven't noticed a loss of strength or anything like that.
