Default ? Carb cycling and workouts - How to burn fat and not muscle

Hi! I just started a new diet and exercise program where I am going to rotate two or three days low carb and one or two day high carbs. I am a little confused on what kind of workouts to do; weight training or cardio on what days. The purpose of the low carb days obviously is to get my body to start burning fat however I read that instense cardio on low carb days will make my body burn muscle instead of fat. But if I do weight training on the low carb days, want that have the same effect?

I just finished Jay Robb's fruit flush and lost 6 lbs. of water and crap I assume. But this has movtivated me to get back on track. Today I am eating low carb and the only exercise that I have been doing is tabata (running in place with ankle and hand weights.) I still want to incorporate tabata no matter what or some from of HIIT. Just want to make sure I do these very intense exercises on the right days.

Thanks for all of your help!
