How Can You Improve Your Cardio Without Hindering Your Gains?

Is it possible to maintain or continue to build muscle while improving your endurance?

You can’t fulfil your ultimate potential as a weightlifter and a marathon runner at the same time.

However, endurance and strength can be developed simultaneously to some degree. As it’s often the case with life's most interesting questions, the answer to ‘is it possible to improve endurance without hindering strength?’ boils down to ‘it depends.’
