The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Changing routine to burn more fat

    How can you change a routine to be geared towards more fat burning and weight loss besides just decreasing rest time? How many sets and reps? at what percentage of a max rep should the lifts be done at? How often a week? Can i do my routine more days since the weight will be lighter? Any exercises in particular that help out with the fat burning?

    You don't lose weight in the gym. Worry about what you eat to lose weight, the gym is to make/keep muscle. If you want to lose weight lift heavy and add some HIIT after your workout or on off days.

    The only way I could think of would be to optimize Growth Hormone output. GH shuttles protein and uses fat for energy.

    Generally, if you read a piece of advice on the internet, assume it's wrong until proven otherwise. This applies especially to "conventional wisdom". -Belial

    Diet is the key here, not how many sets and reps you are doing. Your set/rep scheme isn't going to magically ignite hidden fat burning powers within. You create a caloric deficit to lose fat and you lift heavy to hold onto muscle. Read the stickies on this site regarding diet. There is a lot to read concerning this matter.
