Running and Lifting

Is it a bad idea to run my 3 mile run then lift weights(strenght) afterwards? I don't know if my body would be too tired after the run.

well thats what i do, cardio to warm up and then weights after.

plus a light stretch beforehand, get the joints moving, then run, then stretch for real, then weights, starting from the largest groups together to isolated, is probably the least damaging way to work out.

I like doing cardio before and after a workout. I think it help (me) with breathing when I am working out.

I think this would be the best method. Unless your running with the intent of warming up, Doing it before you lift might slow down your lifting. You burn more energy than you think running. So Either run afterwards or like he said run in the AM and lift in the PM. Thats what ive been trying and its worked fine.

I tried it. I did 5 Sets - 10 Reps - 50 lb.(bench)
then 3 sets - 10 reps - of 45 lbs(curl)

Then I ran about 3 1/2 - 4 miles. I ran alot better than usually cause my heart was already pumping and I ran faster and farther than I usually do. I think I will do this every monday and friday for a month to see my results.

5 mins of running before strenth work gets any supplements or nutrition pumping thru your body and makes your workouts twice as good as the nutrition will help build recover your muscles and give you more energy

Instead of 5x10 try out 5x5 with heavier weights.

I lifted then ran after that the other day for the first time. I was suprised how well my run went. I wanted to go alot further but had no time and was kinda disapointed. Today should go well.

Don't do a lot of cardio right before you lift. 5 mins to warm up is a good idea, but any more than that and you are going to not be able to lift with the same intensity. They way the body generates energy its best to lift first then burn out on cardio.
