A little help on looping..

So I need to print out these numbers:

10 70 20 65 30 60 40 55 50

I have two sets of for loops, one for the 10 20 30 40 50 sequence, then another for 70 65 60 55. Since you cant have only one loop since the numbers arent in descending/ascending order.

My problem is, how can you alternate it? Execute the first number of the first loop, then print out the first number on the 2nd loop.

I tried doing nested loop:

public class Prelim07_55

{

public static void main ( String [] args )
{
int i, x;

for (i=0; i<=40 ;)
{
i = i + 10;
System.out.print(" " + i);

for (x=75; x>=60 ;)
{
x = x - 5;
System.out.print(" " + x);
}

}


}

}

But it outputs ALL the numbers on the inner loop. I want the inner loop to only execute one at a time.

Help?
