Aerobics or weight training first

While trainees should always perform a short aerobic warm-up prior to weight training, the choice of whether to do weight training or aerobics first in the same workout session is debatable. Performing aerobics after weights will make the aerobic training harder (27). So if the primary goal is aerobic training, that should be done first. If the primary goal is weight training, that should be performed first when the trainee is fresh. While performing aerobics after training should in theory rely more on fat for fuel, recall that it does not appear that using fat during exercise has any bearing on fat loss. Bodybuilders, powerlifters and other strength athletes should always perform weight training first after a short warmup.
