One of the major myths about putting on muscle and getting stronger is to stay away from cardio as it is seen to limit or ruin your gains, this however is not true!

It is well known that cardiovascular training dramatically improves your capillary density, for those that don’t know capillaries are the small blood vessels that network through the muscles, and by increasing their density you also increase your ability to supply the working muscles with blood, oxygen and nutrients during training.

With that in mind the more fuel you can provide your muscles the bigger and stronger you are going to get with the research supporting this idea of incorporating 30-45 minutes into your strength training program.
