I like cardio after, it gives me a chance to fee like I burn calories, I don't feel that as much as I'm lifting

I was thinking more light jogging / cycling to get into the 60% MHR range

I will take my post w/o drink after i'm done lifting and the go on the treadmill for 7-10 minutes at close to this 3.0-3.3 at 15% incline and i get a good sweat in that short period of time, although lately i have not been doing this b/c my workouts are taking longer with my partner and I'm sad to say that I'm putting on weight in the wrong places!

i just do straight HITT after my weights that way only takes about 15min I keep my HR at approx 80-85% max and I'm still pumped when i'm done.

I feel like doing cardio after weights does more, because all of your muscle fibers are activated. Also, it takes something like 15-18 minutes of cardio to even get to the point where you are burning fat. I feel like weights gets that out of the way and I can get to the fat burning!
Whoever said that the pump has to subside sooner or later is right. I have never been one to hold my pump for very long anyway.
I like to start my workout with 5 min of walking on incline. Gets me warmed up. I do know a guy who gets up in the morning and does 20 min of fasted walking on incline. He says it make a world of difference when cutting.
I feel like doing any other time besides cutting might be a quick way to waste away muscle mass.

One thing that nobody ever mentions is the fat burning your doing when OFF the treadmill. You burn more fat throughout the day in a rested like state. With that said, I'm of the mindset that the absolute best thing to do is HIIT for 10-12 minutes after weights. Run your hardest/fastest and suck it up. You'll get your heart rate up and throughout the day burn more fat.
I just don't see how a 3.0-3.5mph walk, even incline is going to have that great an effect as compared to HIIT. Keep in mind all, you burn more fat off the treadmill then on. Now go run and get that heart rate up!

**** bro...jump rope for 5 X 3 min rounds... you wanna get some HITT training...you jump rope with weighted handles for 5 X 3 min round and you can get your heart rate up fast. To really turn it up go full on the last 30 sec of each round. I gaurentee by round 5 you'll be sweating balls.

I know I'm going to get flamed for this post, but I have to say it's a bit strange hearing 7 min treadmill sessions refered to as cardio.
Do you do longer cardio on off days?

Eh, I have started it. Been on Havoc though and I think that has helped me prevent a lot of fat gain. 15 - 25 min usually......I use the arc machine. I love that thing.

I have to say: if you can't do at least 20-30 min at about heart rate 160 then as much muscle you may have, you are a *****. Whether you are doing fasted cardio, or normal cardio before or after your weight session, it only takes dealing with the boredom and that's it. Ellipticals and treadmills and the such are not "hard" compared to say benching 225 8 times. Suck it up men, it is good for you.
If you can barely walk at 3.5 mph at even the highest incline for 30-45 min then you need to shape up. Yes it will get your sweat on, but jesus it is not all about slinging some iron and then sitting down and reading a magazine between sets.

I don't do the same "quick cardio" after lifting, some days I do elliptical, some are incline treadmill, and others are stationary bike. Sometimes I don't use any machines and pop in my P90X cardio or plyometrics DVD. Sometimes my cardio is fasted in the morning, sometimes after lifting, it all depends on my schedule for the day and how I feel.
I don't have any scientific proof about one being better than the other. I think so long as you're doing something about your body fat (if that is the reason for the cardio) the scale and mirror will tell you if it is working or not.
