Default Hey Krypto...cardio question

I was reading an article last night and it was a workout that a new mom used to get back into shape after she had her baby. She started out with just a basic routine:

Day 1 - upper body
Day 2 - lower body
Day 3 - cardio
Day 4 - upper body
Day 5 - lower body
Day 6 - cardio
Day 7 - rest

She used power blocks for her upper/lower body workouts and took 90 second rest periods between sets. During those 90 seconds, she would do intense cardio (like the tread mill at a 45 degree incline). The work out consisted of four exercises with 3 or 4 sets of 12-15 reps. Then on cardio days she did walking, treadmill, etc.

What do you think about the 90 second bursts of cardio during her weight training days? How effective do you think this would be? Would your muscles get any rest between sets? Would this flush the lactic acid out? Whatcha think?
