Physical exercises are extremely important for keeping your weight under control because they are burning calories during and after the workout. But the big question is: are you burning more calories as a result of a resistance training before the weights training? Or is it better to use the weights first, and do the cardio after?
Portuguese scientists have discovered that the order of the exercises doesn’t have any effect on the burned calories!
Doing both types of exercises (cardio and weight training) is much more important than their order! So train hard, lift weights, but also do cardio and results will show! Not only that you will burn more calories but you will also build muscle and strengthen your entire body. (Journal Strength Condit. Research 25: 2843-2850, 2011)Article by Craig Wilson
