The point of warming up before ST is to get the synovial fluid in the joints mobile, and depending on the cardio activity chosen, could do very little in that respect. Let's say you hop on the recumbent bike - gets the joints in your lower body moving, but almost nothing in the upper body. Even walking on the treadmill does not get the joints moving in the full ROM.
I suggest forgoing the cardio machines for some joint mobility dynamic stretches.
