In her latest blog post, Stacy explains that both clients and friends often ask if they should tackle cardio or strength training first, as part of their often new fitness regime.
She mentions that she saw a post on The Huffington Post’s healthy living blog, titled “Cardio or Weights First? Sometimes Exercise Order Matters”, in response to one of their reader’s questions.
Stacy mentions that doing cardio before strength training can cause muscle fatigue, often before a person is actually ready for it.
“On the other hand, if your goal is to burn fat and get lean fast, Halevy (who wrote the article) recommends that you do high-intensity interval training prior to a strength-training workout,” Stacy explains.
Going into more detail, Stacy explains that doing cardio before strength training uses up the body’s supply of Glycogen (the stored form of Glucose in a muscle’s cells). Once these supplies have depleted, the body turns to more important supplies such as fat.
“So, if your primary goal is to lose fat and get lean, do your cardio first, especially high-intensity interval training. If your main goal is to build muscle, do your strength training first,” she adds.
Concluding her latest blog post, Stacy explains that – no matter a person’s fitness and weight loss goals are – they should ensure that they do a mix of both cardio and strength training to ensure maximum results.
