Overall, the routine your cousin suggested sound quality to me -- those "big" movements that utilize multiple major muscle groups will definitely give you the most bang for your buck. You should be lifting before doing any cardio -- again its a "bang fo your buck" kind of thing. If it were me, I'd also add a day of rest in between lifing sessions. Well rested, your muscles will repair themselves better, allowing you to get bigger and stronger faster. With that schedule, you could do cardio on the non-lifting days or you could do cardio and lifting on the same day and have the following day off entirely, maybe only doing some sort of light exercise (like a bike ride or an easy jog).
