Is it Better to do Cardio Before or After Weightlifting?
Sure the FAQ section is fine but sometimes it is just easier to see it and hear it. I love video. It’s more personable and it’s more intimate. So happy that YouTube has given us this platform to connect with each other. It’s really incredible that we get to workout together all across the world! And now I get to meet some of you here in the UK!
Today’s question comes from Facebook:
So is it better to do cardio before or after your weight lifting or Pilates session? The answer really is personal preference. At the end of the day, you still did your cardio and you still did your weight training. It just depends on where you want to expend your energy. It also depends how you feel and which order feels more energetic to you.
But if you’re asking how can you incorporate cardio and weight training to burn the most calories, it’s gonna be spurts of HI-LO activity. For example, that could mean a sprint then bicep curls, then burpees to lunges, then mountain climbers to pushups – see what I mean?
Watch the video for more specific examples and a more in-depth explanation to this question. Thanks POPster Terry Speyer for your question! If you guys have a BURNING health and fitness question you want to ask me, leave it in the comments below, tweet me or facebook it to me. I hope we get to answer hundreds and hundreds of questions one of these days. It’s gonna be a fun journey!
