There are many directions you can go with your training but generally your either getting stronger and bigger

or fitter and leaner sure you can train for both but its very hard to reach extremely high levels in both

at the same time eg a marathon runner can’t also be a powerlifter they are too different styles and your body just cant be

extremely effective at both.

so if your goals are mainly to build size strength and power then of course your training must revolve around power lifting and weight training

but if your goals are to get leaner, fitter and lose weight then of course your training must revolve around cardio and a great diet.

no matter what goals you have you must take all 3 things into consideration diet,weights,cardio they must all be done just in different ratios

so if your going to build muscle and aim to increase strength then your diet and weights training will be the main factors with a little bit of cardio

but if you are trying to get fitter and leaner then cardio and diet are the main factors with a bit of weight training

so you need to play around with the ratios of these 3 aspects in order to get the best results possible you cant be everything at once all the time

you can get a hybrid effect by training to be fit and also strong which is fine but you cant get to extremely high levels in both at the same time

thats why goals and direction are extremely important in your training so you know what you want to achieve and can alter your workouts

and training to suit your goals
