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?

    Everything Ive read says it works great. Many people over on the BB forums have had great luck with it. Think about it...control your diet and do heart pounding 1hr workouts daily...fairly fundamental I would think.

    Or you could save the 100 - 200 dollars and control your diet yourself while doing some high intensity cardio a few times a week. Throw in harder-core resistence training and you'll probably make even faster changes. p90x is nothing but whole routines and diets layed right out for lazy people.

    More or less true...I wouldnt say lazy people though. Im not advocating it, Im just saying there are people that dont have the time to get the information for themselves, so they will pay someone else to lay it out appropriately for them. Like doing Taxes or the like.

    I have seen a bunch of commercials on it. It kind of reminds me of the Tae-Bo workouts. It's a pretty hardcore workout. You need to pass there fitness test first though before you do the workouts otherwise you'll never make it through.

    I have a friend I work with who is doing it. He's lost quite a bit of weight, and he has gotten stronger. It's not for someone who wants to get big and strong, but if someone is trying to be "fit" it seems like it works fairly well.
