Hello everyone! Just wanted to get your opinions on doing cardio the day after leg day? Is it ok to do light to moderate cardio the day after or is it best to completely rest the legs the day after? Looking forward to your feedback! Stay healthy and fit

Cardio is always good, will definitely help with loosening up the stiff muscles, don't forget to stretch as well..

Thx for the feedback Ren. I ended up doing a brisk walk for 30. They do feel a bit looser so I think I'll make that part of my routine :-)

Yes I normally do every week, I work muscle groups each weekday and do upto 2 hrs cardio after every weight session...including day after legs which is usually bike work or spin class..

It eases them off and to me feels nice and if your quick back home you can even sit on toliet quite easily haha j/k

Thx for the feedback Matt! I did a brisk walk for 30 and they do feel looser now. By the way, you weren't kidding about the sitting down bit or getting back up for that matter, lol.
