I weigh 140 Ibs , 5ft 4 and bf% 25. I have completed a 12 week beginner and 12 week intermediate weights program alongside running about 35mile per week. I eat a high carb diet.
However, I now want to concentrate on getting to 120Ibs bf% 18 maybe. I am starting my new weights programe tomorrow alongside my new food plan which is 40:40:20 to encourage the fat to come off and build some muscle.
A lot of the articles say to do cardio after lifting weights, why is this so? I alway's go for my run first as it relaxes me and then I'm nice and refreshed for the weights. I do easy runs on weight days and leave my harder running for the days in between.
Would I burn fat faster if I did my weights first and then my run?
