  • Cardio vs Strength

    Hey all, which is better is reducing your BS? I did lunges today after my lunch and my BS dropped from 140 mg to 91 mg in a span of 1/2 hour. Is this normal? I have monitored my BS after a cardio workout but it is not significant drop when I just do cardio. Care to share some experiences?
