Should I Do Weights or Cardio First For Fat Loss?

Question:

Should I do cardio or weights first in order to lose fat fastest?



Answer:

I would recommend doing your weight training first when training for fat loss.

Should I Do Weights or Cardio First For Fat Loss?

It is better to do your weight training first for several reasons:

1. You will be stronger and will get more out of your weights when they're done first. This means you will boost your metabolism and burn more calories throughout the day.

2. The weight training will get your body into fat-burning mode for your cardio so that when you do your cardio you will be burning more fat right away. Normally, if you start with cardio, it takes 15 - 20 minutes to get to the point where your body is burning primarily bodyfat instead of the food you've eaten during the day. This will make your cardio work much more effective than if it was done separately or first.
