More weightlifting than cardio

    Mix it up, do a bit of both. It

    Cardio is good for WEIGHT loss (Some fat loss & muscle loss).

    Weight training is good for muscle retention & fat loss (With the correct diet in place).

    7.5LBS in a week is good for weight loss (some fat and some muscle lost), but not for health and in the long run not so good.

    PS: Do what you prefer doing. If it helps, I open find doing 30 mins cardio AFTER weight training easier than the other weigh around. Weight training consists of more effort and strength.
