weight training and cardio questions

  1. Talking weight training and cardio questions

    i was wondering if its better to do cardio before or after weight training sessions? i play basketball for cardio and was wondering if i should incorporate something on the treadmill/bike. im 6'3 and weight about 200. i havent gotten my body fat tested since july, back then i was 180 at 10 percent but since then i have quit smoking and havent lifted so i put on a lot of fat.

  2. After, Reason being is you want to be primed for weight lifting and cardio before hand will take some energy out of you doing it before hand. A 5 minute warmup run won't hurt but anything beyond that and your going catabolic! Also, Make sure to hit the weights hard so you're only able to do cardio at a low intensity steady state for about 20-30 minutes.

    Good luck with the routine bro!
