The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    P90x

    http://www.extremebodyworkout.com/p9...ducts/p90x.php

    While most of these kinds of workouts suck, this one lives up to it. BUT I think it sucks a lot less than most.

    Anyone ever heard of this?

    I have a bunch of the videos(7 gigs worth) on a harddrive somewhere. Nice thing is that it is not equipment intensive and they do a great job of introducing people of different skill strengths into the system. It is pretty intense because the do not rest a lot and it is a lot of volume of reps. I still prefer traditional weight lifting.
    5'8" 160.5 lbs

    Started in Oct 06" weighing 138 lbs and fat(30%+ bf), knowing nothing, and could barely rep the 45 lb bar at bench. Ate my way to 175.5! Cut myself down to 145, lost muscle along way, trying to bulk to 180 and cut again.

    Bench: 8x165
    Dead lift: 4x285
    Squat: 5x245

    Piles of money for a workout routine. If there was some magic routine everyone would know about it. Just stick with the ussual stuff.

    P90x is NO JOKE! Ive known several people on it that were in modertaly good shape before and now they a shredded to all hell, and not like scrawny shredded either. They added alot of bulk as well. If you got the motivation to stick with it, it will seriously transform your physique...Once i find that motivation I plan to give it an honest go lol.

    I just couldn't see anyone getting strong with a routine like that.
    Instead of that rest week I would incorporate some heavy lifting!
