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?

    You might want to do a light jog before to get the blood flowing. But I wouldn't mix cardio and weight training.

    I personally run in the afternoon and than lift at night...

    If you're gonna do cardio and lifting in the same workout, you should always lift first. Otherwise you're gonna burn up your glycogen stores doing cardio.

    if your doing it for weight loss reasons, run before your 1st meal.. it helps burn the fat off quicker.. if ya not doin it for weight loss reasons.. id say after so you can focus on your lifts as a prioroty
    good luck

    Yeah, its great to do cardio as soon as you wake up, after going 6-10 hours without eating. That gets the blood pumping.


    Most of the weight loss from cardio comes from the metabolism boost it gives you, not the slice of bread that it burns off during the actual performance of the exercise. Otherwise you are burning muscle and carbs just as readily as fat. Eat a light meal before cardio, even if its first thing in the morning, and dont do it before lifting.

    it's best to put cardio on a different day. I've read a couple studies that suggest cardio and heavy lifting on the same day can actually end up harming the heart in the long run...don't remember the premise behind it though, something about hte heart and nervous system being in a different mode.

    i would also reccomend putting it on a different day, but if you MUST do cardio on the same day as a workout, either split up the time of day, or LIFT before CARDIO.

    *** No you won't. It would be dependant on how hard your cardio was and even then you wouldn't deplete your glycogen stores.

    Stop nit-picking maki. One wouldn't deplete all of his or her's glycogen stores, but intense cardio before would lead to a crappy workout.

    I'm not nitpicking. What I'm saying is that it would be dependant on how hard you worked during your cadio session. Not because your gylcogen stores are depleted.

    Maki, if someone managed to deplete 100% of their glycogen stores, would they pass out? I'm just curious.

    Yes. If you've ever run a marathon or a long distance run and you've exterted yourself. You'll know what it feels like to almost "bonk".
    I had the experience in grade school. At the finish line I almost passed out, my vision was blurred and I felt extremely dizzy.
