What did my personal trainer mean by this?

>early 30s
>Been a couch potato my whole life
>just started going to the gym & seeing a personal trainer this week
>He wrote out a fitness plan for me
>Not sure what he means by the cardio part.

Should my pre-lifting cardio warmup be 10 minutes at 113-141 bpm and that's it? Then just do all these weight exercises and I'm done?
Or 30 minutes of constantly alternating between [1 min of 113-141 bpm] and [30 sec of 142-170 bpm]?

I kinda feel like he just wants me to do the 10 minute one on lifting days, and then other days where I'm not doing any lifting are the 30 minutes of cardio, constantly switching back & forth between the 1 min moderate intensity and 30 second high intensity intervals. Does that sound about right?

I'm paying this guy a ton of money that I can't even afford, and he's so impatient and rushed. But I can't do this shit on my own. I've literally never worked out so I know nothing about what to do or when/how. And I don't have the time or patience to research all this shit on my own. So this guy is still my best bet.

Thoughts?

      Yeah, it's just a pain in the ass because I started off with the head PT, then they hired a new guy and he passed me off to the new guy and said I'll be his first client ever. New guy clearly has no idea what's going on or what he's doing.
      Frick. This place is a joke. Oh well. They always have like 50 employees there. Someone should be able to help me out a little.

        Your fault for getting a trainer in 2024 when literally all you have to do to know everything you ever need about fitness is watching YouTube videos.

            I forgot you're a mentally disabled mongoloid who has to watch literal 40days nonstop of videos to understand the most basic concepts about lifting. Concepts so easy to grasp, a child can understand them. Then again you are mentally moronic and not fit to survive in this world on your own.

    you can do this on your own, just follow a reddit PPL program or a bro split.
    Also incorporate cardio a couple of times a week. You will see results just stay disciplined or results won't be as obvious.

    Also use pic related or similar literature to see how each workout activates the muscle group and you can plan your workouts around that. If your trainer is as useless as you say he is

    That interval is going to fricking kill you LOL. RIP.

    I read this as you're going to start with warm up cardio (probably something like an elliptical) then do the weights and finish with that interval.

    If you're a beginner that interval should be like 15 minutes.

    it almost certainly means a 10 minute warm up with your heart rate in the 110 - 140 bpm range, i.e. somewhat elevated but nothing too strenuous. basically get your blood flowing and your body temp up a bit.

Does that sound about right?
    That's KINDA how it reads to me too, the initial cardio is clearly a 10 minute warm up before the resistance training, he's put the 30 minute interval in the homework section (?) so it's either cardio to do on rest days, or else intended as a warm down.

    Don't let this homosexual be "impatient and rushed", you're the client, you're paying. Still, once you've felt your way around the gym and aren't scared of free weights any more I suggest you cancel the PT contract as soon as you can and follow a better routine as it looks like he's pulled this out of his ass.
