I do several times a week strength and cardio training (Thai boxing, to be specific), but also try to mix in extra weight sessions to build up muscle mass.
Is it good or bad to mix these two? I've heard contradictory opinions, none backed by evidence. Which of the following is more "correct"?
- Workout every day, alternate the type of training (time sink, recovery is tricky, injuries heal slower).
- Do both in the same session (is it too much load for one session? which one should go first?).
- You can't have it all, it's a tradeoff: stick to either one or the other.
