  1. Whether you do weightlifting before or after an aerobic workout is up to you. Research hasn’t definitively shown that one way is better than another.
    Consider the factors that fuel the debate about when to do weightlifting:
    Weightlifting can deplete the glycogen stores in your muscles. Glycogen stores provide you with energy for short-duration intense activity and longer duration endurance activity. If you do weightlifting first, you may find that you’re too tired to complete a more intense aerobic workout.
    An aerobic workout can be a good warm-up for weightlifting. If you do your aerobic workout first, make sure that you’re not too tired to lift weights with proper form, as poor weight training technique could increase the risk of injury.
