Cardio before or after weights to burn fat fast

On today’s #TBT episode of Live Lean TV, I’m answering the following viewer question: should you do cardio before or after your weights?

Before I share my thoughts on the timing of your cardio workouts, this is a post from our #TBT Q&A series.


Every Thursday, we will be uploading one #TBT question to our YouTube channel, from our old #LLTV Q&A series that I filmed in 2012.

Here is today’s viewer question on the timing of cardio

Should you do cardio before or after your weights?

I highly recommend you do cardio after your weights.

Should You Do Cardio Before Or After Your Weights?

When you go into the gym, I want all of your energy focused on getting strong.

Strong is the new sexy

Building muscle is going to increase your metabolism and help you burn more calories throughout the day.

If you’re doing weights and cardio in the same session, do cardio after your weights.

Here’s one more reason for doing cardio after weights.

I talked about this in my book, Awaken The Abs Within.

Awaken The Abs Within Book

Your body takes approximately 20 minutes to properly warm up, and release the fatty acids into the bloodstream, to be burned for fuel.

When you are initially lifting weights for approximately 45 minutes, that’s covering off that 20-minute warm-up period.

That way, when you hit the cardio machines, you’re ready to start burning fat immediately.
