Default Brief "aerobic" walking after training okay?

I would like to know if it would interfere with getting stronger and adding muscle if I did 15 min. of walking each time after I'm done lifting? I really enjoy the way I feel finishing off my workouts this way. I don't do it as "cardio", just for fun, keeping my heart rate on the lower side, no more than 70% of my max.

70% of max is still pushing it a bit (that's low intensity aerobic) but 15' as a cooldown is probably ok. If your goal is stronger/bigger, you might consider taking any post-workout nutrition while you're doing the walking.

I didn't want to create another thread I think the title would be the same.

If I walk post resistance training, 65% or lower for 60 min, would this negatively the weight training? I am currently on a diet.

I've heard/read that you shouldn't do cardio before/after resistance, but wondered if "fat burn" cardio/walking differed because of the low intensity.

Unless you are very overweight, walking isn't cardio.

Everything that you do to burn calories is cardio its just dependent on time and intensity.
