Any one here do Cardio mid day??

Hi all
Ive read lots of articles on cutting and all them say that cardio should be performed in the morning before breakfast.

For some this is impossible due to work getting in the way, so they have to do cardio in the afternoon on thier lunch break.

Does anyone here do cardio mid day, if so how do you run your diet (& supps) and is it working for you?

Any advice would be of much help

    As I wake up early for work on weekdays, i tend to do cardial after my evening weight lifting session.

    This is about 2-2.30 hours after my last meal.

    For me its working, but you would also have to take your diet into account which is the main factor when cutting.

    Cardial after weights is fine.

    The above question was posted for my Dad, who is trying to cut.

    His usual day is -

    5.30am Wakes up get ready and takes a 45min walk to work
    7.00am Starts work (Bus driver)
    11am Gets a 2 hour break (This is when he goes to the gym)
    1.00pm Starts work again
    6.00pm Finishes work and goes home.

    Does this 5 days a week

    I know some of you may say - why not just jog to work for his cardio,, He has tried this but finds it too hard to get through the day as its a long boring day behind the wheel.

    since he's got a 2 hour break could he add 20-30 mins cardio in after weights?

    This to me would be classed as cardio, as long as the pace is fast enough and its not a stroll.

    Sorry, I should have mentioned, he does his cardio after his weights.
    One of the problems being that most people say dont eat before cardio, but then there would be no energy for the weights. But he doesnt want to eat too much if it will effect his cutting.

    he needs to eat an hour or so b4 weights IMO to have the NRG 4 a good session and as 4 not eating b4 cardio well the weight will of depleated his body/glycogen stores a certain amount depending on the intensity of the session so a good time 4 SS cardio, just don't make it too intense or 4 too long.

    The fast paced walk would be fine for 'his' morning cardio.

    What constitutes as fast paced?

    I walk to work in the mornings. Its 2 miles and it takes me 30 mins, so 4 mph. Is that a stroll?
