A friend of mine is a gym teacher, and while discussin today, she was interested in what I was saying regarding advantage of doing cardio training (HIIT) after a weight lifting workout as opposed to before.
What I explained to her was that carbohydrates is the main fuel source while lifting weight, therefore the need not to use it up before one engages in lifting weights.
Then, after you’re done with the muscle building part of your workout, you’ve already burned up much carbs calories, so when you hit cardio training, you’ll soon start burning fat calories for fuel since you’re likely carb depleted by then (unless you fueled your glycogen stores back up after you were done lifting)
I can’t seem to recall where I read that from, BUT I do know it was from a reliable source.
Anyone can point me to a study stating the above in scientific terms ? My gym teacher wants me to be provide her with that info.
Any help would you be greatly appreciated.
