Saturday is the lone exception. No need to do cardio in the morning. Just weights and cardio in the afternoon. (Sunday is complete rest / B2 diet). There’s no specific day to skip morning cardio, but Saturday is a good day to sleep in. It makes the diet easier to follow. Just make sure you get 3x low-intensity sessions per week. Feel free to do more, but The Wolverine workout just does 3x low-intensity sessions per week
