Hey, I was just wondering if cardio is more beneficial pre or post workout or if it perhaps depends on the type of cardio you're engaging in?
If you are going to combine the two on the same day, I would do cardio after lifting. I wouldn't want to try and pull a big deadlift when I was already tired and drained from cardio.
If there ever comes a time that I have a desire to do cardio, my thought is that I'll do a slow walk in the morning right after I wake up, and before my first meal. Maybe 2-3 miles worth, 5 days a week or so. But my goals may be completely different from yours. If I was younger and still played basketball/football...I'd be doing my cardio much more intensely and after I lifted...probably 3x a week.
