Cardio Before Weight Lifting May Help Boost Muscle
There would always be people who would be asking how to combine cardio workout and weightlifting and which combination gives you the best results.
This article will help you to make a decision.

Benefits Of Cardio
● It helps to increase your heart rate.
● Helps you to warm up your body.
● Helps your body to mobilize in a much better way.
● It stimulates the muscles in your upper body according to some research.

Why Should You Be Doing Cardio Before Weight Lifting?
Most of the time, after you've had an intense weight lifting session, It is almost impossible for you to put your body under more stress and all you wanna do is to go back home and have your protein shake right?
Let's be honest, Cardio is way more boring than weight lifting. So, after you've hit your chest for a good 40 mins, you won't want to jump on a treadmill or a cycling machine after.
This is one of the major reasons why you should do your Cardio first so that you have all the energy that is required to have a great weight lifting session.

Moreover, there have been studies proving the hypothesis that Cardio helps to stimulate muscles in your upper body in such a way that will help you to gain more muscle mass.

Muscle And Mind Connection
If you believe in the philosophy of perhaps the greatest ever bodybuilder, Arnold Schwarzenegger, you should be a firm believer in muscle and mind connection as well.

According to this philosophy, to gain the most amount of muscle mass, your mind must be completely focused on the muscle group that you are working on.

If you leave your cardio workout to do after your weight lifting workout, It is going to be hard for you to maintain that muscle and mind connection as your mind will be automatically diverted to the pending cardio workout.

All in all, there are several theories about when to do your cardio workout but one should always judge on their own about what works for their body and what does not.
