You hit the gym, and the clock is already ticking: You’ve got 45 minutes to work all of your major muscle groups—oh, and squeeze in some cardio too.
But which one should come first?
There’s not a cut-and-dry answer: Your priority in the gym depends on your personal goals…( No matter how you structure your workout, simply going to the gym is better than nothing!)
If you’re going for general fitness and wellness, it probably doesn’t matter which you do first. Varying the order of your workout can be a great way to break up boredom, and there aren’t many negative consequences to mixing things up. But if you’re hoping to lose weight, gain strength, or just need to set a priority, focus on weight training first and cardio second.
