If your goal is weight loss (along with getting stronger and toning up your body): As a fat-loss strategy, you should do your cardio work AFTER your weight/strength training, not before. Weight/strength training is about improving the intensity of the stimulus to your muscles...for hypertrophy (muscle growth to tighten and tone and gain muscle definition - which is what most women want!) , and you can't do that if your exhausted from high intensity cardio training. You would be breaking down the muscle, not building it. If your muscles are fatigued (from weights) but you overall are not exhausted, you can still work hard, elevate your heart rate and burn a ton of calories! Which, translates to faster, efficient fat loss, not muscle loss! Happy Memorial Day!!!!
