    Cardio before or after weights?

    past few years Ive done 30min. of cardio before lifting. Is there A proven difference of what is better? before or after hitting the iron?

    It would depend on your goals. If you want to be as big as possible then don't do it at all. If you feel you must do cardio for some reason I would separate it from your lifting by several hours. I would never do both at the same time. YMMV

    after... if I do cardio before, I dont have as much energy to lift.. when I do cardio after, I feel like I have already kickstarted the blood from lifting...

    Does taking a dump count as cardio?

    depends what you want..if muscle building is your goal then i would do cardio after....but the best is to do it another day.
    5-10 mns of cardio is good before a workout but this counts as a warmup.
