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?

    Occupational hazard?

    I've been cutting and I'm down to 195 lbs (at 6'1"). I'm about 11% BF (guess) but am trying to get into the 6-8% range. I'm doing the usual HIIT/long walk cardio in the morning and lifting at night. I've been doing basically a low carb/med fat/high protein diet with some success.

    My problem is that I'm now doing part time work for a moving company. The hours are very uneven: sometimes a job 1-4 PM, sometimes 8-2 PM, and some days I don't have any jobs. I'm only doing about 15 hrs a week. I'm worried that this is going to interfere with my cutting process. Because moving burns so many calories, I'll probably end up burning a lot of muscle (at least that's what I was thinking). Also, I'm not sure if I should lift weights if I'm going to be moving all day. And lastly, I'm not sure a low carb diet is feasible when I need so much energy to work.

    So, how should I incorporate this job into my routine. Is it going to cause me to atrophy because of all the added cardio? Should I even lift weights if I'm doing a moving job? Aggh...too many worries

    Assume an extra, hmmm, 200 cals per hour you work? 300? Just eat extra on the days when you work. Train on a different day.
