hey yo. im a newbie to this forum and pretty much a newbie with lifting in general. ive been lifting for about 4 months and getting really good results - i'm trying to keep good eating habits and go to the gym 3-4 times a week. i'm 19 yrs old, 5'9 and 159 lbs. but here's my question. ive read many posts on here and no one has really answered my question. im getting a good built/toned upper body, however i still have more gut than i'd like. ive been doing 60 crunches about everyother workout along with running for like 10 -15 min at a pretty decent pace. then i go lift. my question is...when do i need to do cardio/aerobics in my workout? should i do it before i lift or after i lift? seems to me that if i lift first, then ill be burning fat when i run or bike afterward, but if i run first i'll burn all the carbs i have- then i wont have any energy to lift. thanks peeps.
