    If you have to incorporate cardio in the same training session that you train weights(like me), do cardio after weights. You don't want to expend all of your glycogen stores before lifting.

    Yep, if weight training and cardio in the same workout definitely do your cardio last. You don't want depleted glycogen before weight training.

    True dat. After. You also burn a higher %age of calories from fat after the w/o as glycogen staores are lower, so you tap into the fat reserve much faster.

    Depends on how much you do. I wouldn't do more than 20 minutes after a workout.
