Strength training and aerobics: how much rest do I need after strength training and before aerobic exercise (swimming)?
posted by daver to health & fitness (8 answers total)
My goal is ultimately to work off a bit of a gut I've developed as of late. I'd like to add swiming into my current regiment of 30 min bike commuting (daily or so) and strength training once a week. I am using the 'super slow-motion' weight training, "lift to muscle failure". How much rest do I need between strength training and swimming? What's the general rule of thumb for mixing weights and aerobics?
