One day start with cardio and finish with strength training with 5 minutes of high-intensity-intervals to boost your metabolism (you burn more calories). On another day, start by warming up (5-10 minutes) then go lift those weights. Finish up by doing your cardio exercises the same as before namely, with 5 minutes of high-intensity intervals (3 x 30 seconds of different exercises with 30 or more seconds rest. Do this 3 to 4 times).
