They're not mutually exclusive though, it's very possible to do a 3-5k run to warm up and help towards a calorie deficit and then weight train.

30 mins cardio first then once the muscles have loosen up i do weights. 🙋

I’ve been through a body transformation recently and dropped from 25% to 9% body fat in 6 months. My experience was that Weights are superior in increasing muscles mass and therefore increasing BMR. Cardio is more effective and creating a calorie deficit. I used both strategies at the same time. The key was to be fresh for both types of sessions to maximise each benefit.

I’m going with the cardio full pelt at the minute. I’ve got some uber muscle which is hidden under fat... time to trim the fat! 💪
