Trying to lose a lot of weight and improve just general overall health (not necessarily power or strength) as I'm over 30 now, and there really isn't much of a need or desire to bench 400lbs any more....
When I was into BB in my 20's - early 30's. it was all about strength-training and mixing it up with boxing/MMA....not a fan of long-cardio.
Here is the dealio.
Can I get away with doing 45-60 minutes of cardio FIRST (get it out of the way), and THEN do strength-training (3x12 / 4x10) or is that just not right, or counter productive?
The reason I ask is ---- after weights, man, I just don't have anything left in the tank for long bouts of cardio (and I know I need it). Also, I find it hard to stay focused on card, because lets face it - it is a little mundane compared to the challenge of weights.
Usually work 30 minutes cardio once I wake up - then after work (sedentary job) do the cardio + weights...
