I've just received 2 - 20 lb dumb bells from someone. I already do 30 minutes every morning on the treadmill starting out at a warm-up walking pace and finishing with at a quick jog. I'd like to supplement that activity with some basic strength training using these dumb bells. I'd like my overall workout to be less than an hour, so what are the best exercises I can do with these weights to get the most benefit? Also, should I do the strength training before or after the treadmill work?
Bonus Points - I've recently had weight loss surgery and am doing quite well with it, so if there are any exercises or routines aimed at weight loss patients, that'd be even better.
