Its best to seperate your cardio from your weight training session but if you dont have the time to do it than do it after your weight training. Take some gatorate and a protein shake before you start with the cardio so you dont get in a too catabolic state.

after weight training is best out of those two options because u will then be burning fat and not using up muscle while doing cardio, which would defeat the purpose of weight training, (that is if you are trying to gain size)
also if you are trying to build muscle you want to prioritize that over your cardio, just in the same way you would for a lagging body part
i would also suggest not doing cardio after you train legs since this would put a lot of strain upon your legs and you would not be able to put out the same effort as you would on "fresh" legs, but it's all up to you on that depending on how your body responds for you
I love the pump because when the pump arrives it's better than cumming. And because I really like working out a lot, it's like I'm cumming all day.

The body can store up to 4-500g of carbs in the body as glycogen. Just in my opinion, I'd rather have that accumulated throughout the day. Holding onto muscle while cutting is tricky as it is.
Answering the question; cardio post workout is most effective or on non-training days or in the evening. When after the workout isn't CRUCIALLY important. What's more important is the form of cardio your doing to be put in a higher EPOC.
Hope this helps some. :1:
After, to put it rather simply. Weightlifting is an anerobic exercise meaning you rely on your quick energy sources such as Creatine Phosphate and Glucose or Muscle Glycogen. If you do cardio you will expend most of your stores of muscle glycogen and will be less efficient in the weight room. Also, after you expend your muscle glycogen and creatine phosphate stores your body will more readily turn to its Aerobic cycle and turn to fat oxidation during your cardio after training.
The point of weight lifting (unless your dieting) is to stimulate hypertrophy, you cannot do this if you exhaust your immediate or quick energy sources on cardio.
However, some things I'm confused about that I am NOT arguing just looking over I guess.
First off: there are 3 energy systems the body uses. The phosphagen system, anaerobic glycolysis and aerobic glycolysis. When you weight train or do any other form of intense exercise, the phosphagen system is what's used first (creatine phosphate) because it's quickly enabled yet quickly depleted. However, it recovers. ATP is returned after 40-90 seconds and is ready to be used again. For instance, a sprint. Fast burst of energy, a peak then you slow down.
Glycolysis is the breakdown of glucose. During a time phrase that you run out of ATP the body turns, of course to the stored glucose. Anaerobic, being that lifting is anaerobic in nature, used anaerobic glyc second. Following that aerobic glyc. Each "step down" takes longer and longer to recover and replenish.
So my point that I'm confused about:
What you deplete during pre workout cardio is glycogen. When glycogen is depleted or low, the body will break down primarily proteins (AA's) into glucose, then pyruvate, the Acetyl CoA, etc to provide energy. THEN glycerol.
Am I making sense? Maybe I have it a bit wrong? Could def. be. After an interval cardio session, fax oxidization will happen to fit the replenishment of glycogen post workout.
ye thanks for all the advice but its really a time thing, no other time to do it. i just planning to do light cardio after weight training to start slowly getting it too summer phase without rushing into it too much, plus i just started weight training after along period of so am not dont wana lose any more muscle than i have during this period so probably light cardio after weights is less disadvantagous out of the two??
Ok I just woke up from a nap but here it goes, but if I forget anything forgive me IS and tim can feel free to add on:
The Phosphocreatine system only lasts a matter of seconds, so the ATP used during most of your sets is from Glycolysis. As for your recovery of your Phosphocreatine system, that is generally due to the amount of creatine kinase available but again is exhausted in a matter of seconds.
Resistance exercise is an activity performed by individuals interested in competition, those who wish to improve muscle mass and strength for other sports, and for individuals interested in improving their strength and physical appearance. In this review we present information suggesting that phosphocreatine depletion, intramuscular acidosis and carbohydrate depletion are all potential causes of the fatigue during resistance exercise. In addition, recommendations are provided for nutritional interventions, which might delay muscle fatigue during this type of activity.

First off it is called Aerobic Oxidation/Respiration not aerobic glycolysis ;) (never heard that before, but you never know it may be as well) which occurs in the mitochondria and uses oxygen.Glycolysis breaks 1 glucose into 2 pyruvate, producing 6 ATP. Pyruvate is used to make acetyl-CoA, the starting product for the citric acid cycle. Each turn of the cycle oxidizes 1 pyruvate, so it takes 2 turns to completely oxidize 1 glucose. Two turns produce 8 NADH, 2 FADH2, and 2 ATP. NADH and FADH2 are then oxidatively phosphorylated, resulting in 28 more ATP. The 3 stages together produce 30 to 38 ATP. This takes much longer and can take up to minutes to truly tap into this energy source which is generally from low to intermediate intensity exercise bouts or cardio.
I don't know where you got the glycerol part, glycerol is the backbone of triglycerides.
Gluconeogenesis may be what your thinking about which generation of glucose from non-carbohydrate carbon substrates such as pyruvate, lactate, glycerol, and glucogenic amino acids performed mostly in the liver. Although glycerol is sometimes not considered a true gluconeogenic substrate, as it cannot be used to generate new glucose.
This takes time and depending on your bodies energy requirements due to intensity and the duration of exercise will not be a sufficient way of delivering ATP because it consumes ATP to conduct gluconeogenisis. If you consume your muscle glycogen before you weight train you will not efficiently "regain" your muscle glycogen as you stated above to have as an effective workout. However, after resistance exercise when your muscle glycogen is low or depeleted (which is unlikely) and you perform low to intermmediate levels of cardio intensity your body will resort to Aerobic Oxidation because of it clearly garners more ATP.
I hope this answers your question, although I am not sure exactly what you were confused on. You reminded me of this kid in class that would raise his hand, explain out the steps to ask a question just in a way to be told that he was "right".. that is a mental masterbator.. don't be that guy :carduindisguise
