Never do cardio before weights!!
Doing cardio after weights:
This will allow you to use the carbs that your body has stored for ENERGY and for STRENGTH. It will allow you to lift more weight and a higher frequency of weights before failure. Then if you do cardio after your workout, you will have depleted carb levels which will lead to FAT LOSS. This is a no-brainer.

I read on the alternate link that some guy gets a protein shake in between the lifting and the cardio. That sounds like a good plan to me.
I always do cardio after. If not for how much better you feel leaving it till last, why would you want to sweat it up on the bench press for some other jerk to have to lay on. haha

Seems like that could be the obvious outcome but what about feeding your muscles after your lifting?
Would we waste that window where your muscle will absorb all the protein you take in with 20 min of cardio?

Man, you've made a lot of progress, nice! I've heard good thing about the Anabolic Diet, have been considering it when I cut down.

I always figured that cardio before weights burns up ur glycogen stores so you cant lift was well after.....
Also it is my broscience that cardio after weights has a slight influence on spot fat reduction. I wanna say i read somewhere about this..... or im just sooper smart

Instead of a protein shake I would suggest amino acid/gatorade (powder). It's lighter and gets to the muscles a lot quicker.
I sip aa/gatorade throughout my workout and I'm now transitioning into doing HIIT after some workouts.
