California natty Mardin Gervargiz says, "My thoughts on cardio . . . I prefer fasted cardio instead of post or pre workout cardio. I feel like when I do my cardio fasted I burn more calories from fat as opposed to doing my cardio post or pre lifting, doing my cardio before or after weight lifting would cause me to burn more calories from protein or muscle which is obviously not a good thing. I don’t do my fasted cardio everyday either, I do fasted cardio on the mornings after a big cheat meal or whenever I wake up watery and don’t feel dry. If I wake up shredded I’ll skip fasted cardio and have a big breakfast usually with some pancakes or French toast, something with a lot of sugar and fat."
