I was told that cardio helps get the blood flowing so that your weight training yeilds more rewards, and also told weight training preps the muscles so that your cardio yeilds more rewards. I guess it depends what you want/need. My old trainer had me doing 15 minutes of moderate cardio, then weight training, then polish off the workout with another 15 minutes of cardio.I heard it's better to weight train before cardio. I've been doing that. Is it true?
When I was an athlete, we never did weight training before cardio. We never did weight training without a proper sweat either, so a little cardio before weights is a good thing, IMO.I heard it's better to weight train before cardio. I've been doing that. Is it true?
I have friends who used the app and really liked it as a good way to start slow, but stay motivated.Carol took up a "Couch-to-5K" program where she has this app on her iPhone that tells when to walk, when to run, how far, how long, and so on and so on. She recruited some girlfriends to go with her, and it's amazing how much stamina she's built between this, Zumba, and our frequent long walks.
