Studies have shown that incorporating cardio within a weight workout is very effective for fat loss versus tacking it on at the end or on a separate day. I utilized this tactic during much of my bikini competition prep last year, and was very pleased with the results. And it made my workouts a little more interesting.
Use a challenging weight that still allows you to use good form and technique. Keep rest to a minimum between exercises, and try to take your rest at the end of the circuit if possible.
