Males (N = 16) and females (N = 4) were matched and assigned to a group that performed submaximal cardiorespiratory training before resistance training or resistance training before submaximal cardiorespiratory training. Ss performed both forms of exercise for 45 minutes four days per week for 10 weeks.
The order in which the two forms of training were performed did not hinder positive physiological improvements derived from either activity.
Implication. The order in which resistance and submaximal cardiorespiratory training is performed has no appreciable effect on training improvements.
