If I combine cardio and strength training in the same session, which should I start with?

IMG_2124

When we do cardio first, we have less energy to do intense strength training and vice versa, so mix it up! 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).

    Mel, thank you so much for offering Online Fitness Classes!  I love all your videos.  You provide a great variety of exercises and it can be modified to make it harder which is great.  I was telling everyone because I am used to your style of yoga, when I close my eyes and hear your voice, it’s like we are in the same room.  Much love, Jackie.
