Summer is almost here, everybody knows what that means, it means you want to be toned, firm, slim, fit and so on. We see more people running around, jogging, in the gym they do more cardio.

The big question is when is the best time to do cardio training. Well….there is no best time! It doesn’t matter when you do it, just do it when you have time for it! You will burn the same amount of calories either way. The other big question is, if you should do cardio first and then lift weights or the other way around. Well fitness experts say it is better to do weight training first. Lifting before cardio is much better for fat loss and workout energy efficiency. It takes a lot of energy to move heavy weights so don’t waist it on cardio. To achieve a fit look, your body needs to use your stored fat as fuel for exercise. In order to do this, you must burn off your glycogen stores first. When you weight-train, you typically use glycogen as fuel. By doing weight-training first, you can burn the majority of your glycogen stores.

Remember lift first, do cardio after, it is simple! Do your workouts whenever you have time, just do it!
