    Everybody needs a dynamic warmup before lifting. But do you think the cardiovascular workout you are doing before lifting is fatiguing you so you can't maximize your lift strengths? Do you think it might be better to do more cardiovascular work after your lifting than before?

    Thanks bad_call! I've gone through my ups and downs with pain, and by hitting the gym I can definitely tell when my body is more fit for tennis. I'm always looking for ways to improve my shoulder situation especially in this line of work!

    Charlie, it really depends on what you're going for when working out. In this article they say it's overall more beneficial to do cardio before weights. http://weighttraining.about.com/od/techniquesandstrategies/a/cardio_weights_2.htm The comparison of doing it before rather than after was that your legs are fresh for a better cardio in which a "higher aerobic fitness" can be reached. When you're spent after lifting "heavy legs and arms...are not conducive to a good cardio session." It seems the after-cardio consensus is for those who want to build more muscle, while before helps burn more fat, in which I'm trying to achieve. My goal is to trim down while toning up.

    Last night we actually dropped weights to do reps of 20 rather than maxing out at 10. The plan I listed was the basic training regiment, but is subject to change so we're always shocking the muscles and cardio in different ways.
