As you lose weight, a higher percentage of it will come from fat instead of muscle if you're strength training all along the way. You can do strength training on the same days as cardio or different days, whichever works best for you. If you do it on the same day, you could do 20-30 minutes of cardio followed by 15-20 minutes of strength training (or start at a lower level if that is better for you.)

Hope that helps,

Hello! I currently weigh 288lb, am on a course of losing weight. Currently I make sure to get my 10,000 steps, but don't do any strength training. I did buy some weights recently and want to start lifting, but I'm a bit unsure as to how to fit the weights into my routine. Should I prioritize getting all 10k first, then lift if/when I have time afterward? Or would doing 5-7k in order to make time for the weights? Which would support my weight loss goals better in the long run?

Would also enjoy any other tips you've got for me. Thanks!

Rule 1: Don't eat foods with ingredient lists containing numbers, colors, or the word "flavors".
