    Does lifting before you go running or use an eliptical burn more fat than lifting after a cardio workout??

    do cardio before you lift. one way doesnt burn more fat than the other, but i would definitely do the cardio before you lift.

    Lifting before running burns more fat...and IMO it's a lot easier. After a hard workout I can manage to force myself onto the treadmill for 20-30 minutes...but after cardio, I feel weak when I lift. I usually play basketball as a warm up for 15-20 minutes, lift, then jog or hit the bike for a while.

    i think doing cardio before gets you in better shape. i either run intervals for a couple miles or work jump rope and run sprints for a good 30 minutes as a warm up to the lifting. when i just do a quick jog and then lift its just not the same. i never feel satisfied as if i pushed myself to the limit. i like keeping my heart rate up. if your trying to burn fat, i would suggest doing this, in addition to working cardio into circuits for your workout

    if your goal is physique oriented or power/stength oriented than lift before you do cardio...

    i don't really like jogging or treadmill running...i think fast pace walking or sprinting are probably the best options for fatloss...

    i always knock out a mile on the treadmil before I get into my workout, warms up my muscles and makes them more receptive to lifting.

    you can do warmup sets though, it doesnt have to be cardio. like if im going to go for heavy deadlifts or something i start out light then work to my actual work set/sets

    if youre doing bicep curls, no you probaly dont need a warmup but i think if youre going to be putting over 300lbs of stress onto your body you should just do a warmup even if its just a set with 135 for a few sets.

    i think warmups are more helpful for priming your body to the stress its about to endure that way you dont dislocate or tear something during your lift more than making you stronger which is why if im doing something thats light on the CNS i dont do a warmup set.

    this is good response i got from somebody

    "Yes, and you see 17% better results from the lifting routine as well.

    Your body has several different drives, and by keeping your heart rate up higher, you burn more calories. Where the calories are coming from depends on the level of your heart rate. Between 65-70% Max Heart Rate, you burn fat calories. Between 80-90% MHR is your cardio-strengthening zone, where calories come from stored carbohydrates, but your lung capacity and endurance will improve.

    Similarly, the body has a protein synthesis drive that sends stored protein to repair and build muscle tissue after a work out. By doing a cardio workout post weight lifting, your PSD will remain at a higher level as your body recovers. PSD is directly proportional to the heart rate, so higher the heart rate, the harder the PSD kicks in to a certain point. You need to be sure to have sufficient protein intake to ensure your body's health and recovery."

    someone told me they watched a Jay Cutler video or something and he was saying how cardio is intesified post workout which is why he just does incline walking afterwards, as do majority of BBers, because he doesnt want to do too much.

    that's because he wants to keep his heart rate at the 65-75% range to only burn fat.

    i'd say swimmers are pretty significant in muscle mass and pretty lean...

    i honestly never looked at a bb and thought...wow, that's a really lean person especially cause they're only really really lean right before competition for the most part...give them some water and watch them bloat like a chia pet.
