    Before. Doing cardio(except maybe a light 5 minute warm up) before any sort of muscle training is going to cause you to not have the energy to push your muscles 100%. Cardio "works" everything.

    Lets go a touch deeper into this statement..... Cardio takes away your energy because it converts your ATP into usable energy and after that mechanism is complete it switches over to glycogen for energy and then fat.... the reason why weight bearing things should be done first is because the movement will deplete your glycogen levels prior to cardio vascular activity so you will perform better... get a better workout and the cardio will in turn burn more fat....

    i read in an article in M&F that your abs get a better workout after an intense cardio workout, however i disagree...cardio is always best after resistance training

    what if you occasionally incorporate weight training, cardio, and abs.. What should the order be then? Weights, abs, then cardio?? I usually do weights, cardio, then abs...

    what i generally do is

    weights
    abs/calves
    ride my bike home, drink some creatine and then run for about 15 mins at a pretty high intensity...
    does that work?

    i usally do abs after cardio, because they dont need much high volume workout if ur using weights.
