How often should I do weight training in relation to cardio?

I’m starting a more intense work out regimen and I want to include both intense cardio and weight training, but I’m not sure how often to do the weight training. I am planning on 60 minutes of intense cardio (30 min of incline hiking and 30 min of running intervals) 5 days per week. How often should I plan on doing the weight training as well?

    I would say begin at two days a week, spend one day on your upper body (tricpeps, biceps, pectorals, and back muscles), and spend your second day on your lower body (quads, hamstrings, inner/outer thighs and calves).
    When you are comfortable with this routine, and/or feel like you are not being challenged, up the amount of days.

    Don’t weight train and do cardio on the same day if you must separate them to morning and evening failing that cardio after weights!

    Decide the ratio of weights to cardio during your week based on your specific goals!

    When you do cardio make sure its intense include sprints or do interval running that way your building muscle rather than loosing it on your cardio days! (while burning fat)

    I personally do a full body workout 3 times a week and do a series of sprints or interval runs on my off days! But sounds like you can only fit 2 weight training sessions in which is a common practise for some athletes so its fine!

    You will hear people say dont run if your trying to gain strength and size but as long as its at least 25% anaerobic ie a few sprints mixed in then its beneficial!

    Good luck stick with it for 3 months and it becomes habit not a chore!
