Mike is the owner of Extreme Human Performance and honestly one of the smartest people we know so we got him on the show to talk about whether cardio is killing your strength and muscle gains.

“The downside is people hear that and they abuse the piss out of it, so everyone will say…

‘Oh he said low intensity fasted cardio is the greatest thing I’ve ever heard for fat loss so I’m going to never eat and do all my sessions fasted, oh and carbohydrates are evil too’

Everyone just takes that to the Nth degree and paradoxically I see some people who’ve done way too much low intensity cardio on way too few calories, their strength training performance is utter crap and their body composition also get stuck too.”
