    generally you should lift before doing cardio. usually cardio workouts will make you more tired which will result in less energy to lift afterwards. if you want, you can split the cardio up into 2 small workouts. do 10 or 15 minutes of cardio to warmup, then do your weights, then do another 10 or 15 more cardio to finish off. this can increase your heart rate which may actually give you a better lifting workout.

    that’s one option. i tend to do weights, and then do cardio fo 20-30 minutes. either way you should try to avoid a full blown cardio workout before lifting for sure.

    Hi there

    There’s no one way that works best for everyone.

    Your goals are good ones–it’s important to burn fat and to do it without being injured.

    Part of avoiding injury is having a sustainable program, one that you can use from now until your dotage. By itself, this rules out a lot of high intensity fitness exercise like running.

    Here’s my best recommendation.

    Do mild cardio before your first meal 3 to 6 times each week. For example, you could walk 2 miles in 30 minutes 6 times a week or walk 4 miles in 60 minutes 3 times a week. That would be averaging 30 minutes for those six days, which should be sufficient to prevent you from gaining body fat. If you want to lose fat by burning more fat, simply average between 45 and 90 minutes daily. That is enough cardio.

    You’ll burn extra calories during and immediately after your walks.

    Then, once about every 3 or 4 days, do strength training. Do a whole body routine and focus only on the basic exercises, namely, squats, deadlifts, presses, rows, dips, and chins. If you train intensely, you won’t want (or be able!) to do any cardio afterwards.

    This will cause you to add muscle, which is your metabolic furnace. You’ll burn extra calories 24 hours a day.

    Of course, it’s important to eat properly. That means no refined (processed) carbohydrates, a meal about every 3 waking hours, sufficient proteins from natural sources at each meal (at least 15 grams per feeding for a female and at lease 20 grams per feeding for a male), and plenty of water.

    Of course, if you want a greater degree of cardiovascular fitness, you could add some intense cardio on two afternoons when you are not doing strength training. I suggest GXP or interval training, which must be brief, about 5 minutes (excluding warm-ups and cool-downs).

    I hope this helps.

    All my best wishes to you
