Cardio Weight Training 

Cardio and weight training are two different subjects there is no cardio weight training combined. Often people get confused whether they should prefer cardio training or weight training for effective weight loss. The answer is you can combine both cardio exercises and weight training exercises for effective weight loss. Early in the morning our metabolism is high so cardio exercises should be preferred at that time, weight training can be done in the afternoon or evening. If you have time constrains and can not manage to exercise twice daily and if you wish to do both cardio and weight training then do alternate day cardio and alternate days weight training.

This way enough rest is given to the muscles which are put at stress in the weight training sessions. If you wish to do both in one session itself then start with weight training and end with cardio exercises to get most productive results. This is due to a simple reason – for the first 20 minutes you would burn your glucose reserves if you do cardio exercises first and then when you shift to weight training later with depleted glucose stores you would not have enough energy to perform weight exercises. So it is always to do weight training first followed by cardio exercises.
