Our expert says:
I think it's a good idea just as an easy warmup. Even if all you ever did was weights, it would be a good idea to warm up properly before, and 5 to 10 min of cardio is the way to do this.
So yes, take the first five minutes as a light cardio session, just to warm the muscles up, ease into the training session and get ready for it. You'll reduce the risk of injury if you do this.
