    Should be no mixed thoughts on the matter. All the exercise organizations that matter recommend it after wieght, has been this way for awhile now.

    the only people who do cardio before weights are women.

    I should be clear, cardio directly after weight training. I think after two hours between bouts of cardio is enough time to not seriously effect ones workouts. At least thats some of the literature out there says.

    Wink Cardio last!!

    Cardio will deplete glycogen levels and the nervous system if done prior to resistance training!
