Do you do cardio before weights or after weights?
There's lots of research out there on benefits of both cardio and weights, I'm curious as to what people find more beneficial with regards to their own health. Do you like to do cardio before or after your weight session?
I do it before the weight session of course, like everyone else in the gym but I also run on my way back home, so I pretty much do both. Used to, that is. It's been more than a month since I last went to the gym.
I'm no expert, but it seems to me that it is better for your body to warm up with some cardio before you lift weight.
From what I have read (and not necessarily practice) is cardio on one day, strength on alternate days. Both on one day might be counter productive and lead to injury.
As I lift heavy weights, I want to be at my physical peak so I will do cardio after lifting rather than be so tired that I sacrifice form and risk an injury. The alternative would be to lift lighter but then I would not improve in my strength.
