Noob needs help on mixing strength and cardio training


Recommended Posts

Hey there!


So I'm a noob to most things fitness related. I just started at a gym doing mostly cardio but I want to mix in bodyweight and free weights in as well.

I was wondering if I'm going to start both, should I do it all in one day? Say a half hour doing cardio and then a half hour doing strength? Or should I mix days during the week, cardio one day and strength the next day? Or should my workout week look something like 3 days a week of strength and then one day of high intensity cardio like sprints and whatnot?

As you can see I am quite lost and have a lot of questions. I want to get the both of both worlds without getting burnt out because I'm still new.


So, any suggestions on a good workout plan that will help me get strong, fast, with good endurance?

Can you list your goals for working out in order of preference? Also need your age and workout history so we know where you're at.
