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?

    I think they work good. I think actually going out and bike riding is a MUCH better workout..especially downhill and on mountains cause it involves your whole body...Also helps build your calves and quads.

    Zalxder-
    You think this or you have some kind of study to back it up? I have never believed that bodyfat could be spot reduced.

    Dear Zal. No.


    I prefer the bike actually, as it doesn't take a toll on my knees and feet.

    I like to ride my 20 inch bike, and do a little freestyle when I have time. Riding up hills on that thing will work your legs like a mofo.

    Deadlift - 550

    I love my bike. It's the best. I ride outdoors. At the gym, I like the elyptical - - I think that's what it's called. The thing that looks like it's skis kinda - - you guy's know what I mean. I hope.

    I used to ride bike all the time because I really hate running. I DO run, I CAN run, but a stint in the army kinda ruined my knees and ankles (YOU run around in full combat gear with a ruck and rifle and see if your knees don't get messed up!!).

    However, I recently tried those elliptical trainers that the gyms have these days (they look like a StairMaster and a Nordic Track had offspring together...)

    I find it to be a great workout, I can get my heart rate up and keep it there with no pain for a good 45 min session.

    i think bikes are great. Just remember to keep the intensity up. I also read an article that said riding a bike was the best possible excersize for abs. Go figure.

    I used to use it as a quick warmup before running. Not bad, but if you CAN, by all means RUN!
