Lift Weights before Doing Cardio When it comes to deciding whether or not you should lift weights before or after doing your cardio the choice should be an easy one.

By lifting weights before doing your traditional treadmill, bike, or elliptical work in the gym you will have additional energy to lift more weight. This will lead to greater strength and lean body mass gains which will help elevate your metabolism. Also, by lifting weights first you will be priming your body to better tap into burning body fat when you head over to do some cardio afterwards.

So the next time you are debating whether or not to lift or do cardio first, go for the weights!
