Cardio Before or After Weights
Cardio Carb Killer
When should you do cardio in a workout?
Do you perform cardio/aerobic work prior to your weight training
session? If you notice some guys in the gym, they jump on a bike or
treadmill and get in a cardio/aerobic routine before they hit the
iron. Have you thought about getting your cardio/aerobic out of the
way before you work the weights? Huge mistake. Don't even consider
it - and here's why.
Cardio/aerobic can be used prior to weight training for a very brief
warm up. However, anything beyond a couple of minutes of semi-dynamic
action should be avoided. Why? Fuel source. When you perform
cardio/aerobic exercise, the initial fuel source is glycogen based
and you use very little fat. As your workout progresses you start to
use more and more fat for fuel. At the twenty minute mark the fat
starts to be burned off more readily.
When you do train with the aim to burn off fat, the twenty minute
mark should be the starting point for fat loss. However, the first
20 minutes burn up a lot of glycogen as fuel. And that means you
don't have that glycogen available for later in the workout. This
means that your weight training doesn't have the necessary fuel for
hard training. And your muscles are somewhat exhausted to boot. So
doing cardio/aerobic first messes fouls up your fuel source and
drains your energy - not a wise move prior to trying to move heavy
The better choice is to always do your weight work first, and then
if you want to perform some cardio/aerobic training on the same day,
do it after the weight training. This is much more efficient as the
glycogen will have been used up in the weight training and you can
get right down to burning fat as the fuel source for the
cardio/aerobic work. This situation makes a post weight training
session on cardio work the best possible time to burn fat. The
effectiveness of the post weight workout for cardio is extremely
high and you should see very good results, while keeping your weight
training impact intact. Make moving the iron a priority and give it
the first slot in your workout set up.
The best time to mix weight training with cardio workouts is when
you are in a trimming approach - getting ready for a contest or just
trying to slim down and lose some fat. Getting the weight training
and cardio routines in the right training order is important for
maximizing the best results from each style of training. And the
people who do a hard load of cardio first? They obviously don't
know what they are doing, nor why.
