    Let me see if I can paint a picture for you.

    Its Canada. Its -20 celcius outside, mild snowstorm.

    I leave my house and I begin the 20 minute walk to the gym.

    I arrive at the gym, I begin my cardio training which consists of 20 minutes of HIIT followed by 20 minutes of moderate ( 8 min mile) cardio.

    After completing that I rehydrate and head downstairs to the weight room.

    Its leg day, and it goes like this:

    Squats - 3 sets
    Leg Press - 4 sets
    Quad Extensions - 3 sets
    Calf Raises - 5 sets

    I leave and begin the 20 min walk home, its still snowing and its still freezing. But all I think of the chicken and pasta awaiting me at home and tommorows workout.

    why the heck do you do HIIT before weights? especially on leg day?

    seems kinda redunant to me.

    because after training legs, walking is hard enough, let alone running lol.

    at this point in time cardio conditioning is of more importance to me then weight training.

    I probably should add my situation and training experience.

    I've been weight training for about 4 years, I also training in BJJ and submission wrestling, so my endurance and fitness level does allow me to exceed what would be considered 'normal' training.

    Youre not hardcore if you can do HIIT for 20 minutes run for another 20 then go lift, you didnt do HIIT right. Anything less than complete exhaustion or puking after HIIT is weak.
