When it comes to fitness, I typically avoid the gym and use outdoor scenery to my advantage. On the rare occasions that I do step into the gym, I hit the treadmill for 30 minutes, do a quick abdomen workout, and then start weight training.
Turns out, I’ve been doing it ALL wrong.
According to this article, “The optimal workout is a 10-minute warm-up on a low-impact cardio machine followed by 30 minutes of weights and then 30 minutes of intense cardio.”
Certified strength and conditioning specialist Jim Smith says, “Efficiency is the key when structuring any workout, so long-duration cardio should not be done in the beginning of the session…The most intensive training should be done first in the workout, when you are at your best.”
