The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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 do cardio 3x a week: Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Some of which are 15-minute runs, while others are 20-minute HIIT sessions. Seems to work well for me.

    I walk 5-6 times a week (light pace) outside or on a treadmill and three of those days I do gpp right after with either the sled, farmers walk, or tire flipping. I feel stronger than ever when I stick to this. Unfortunately when I get close to meet time I back off thinking the rest will help. I am going to try and not do that anymore. It's a tough habit/mentality to break.

    I do ALOT of cardio. While I only focus on it two times a week, which consists of running 10 miles. Everytime I got to the gym, I always start off with 30 minutes of cardio. just to warm-up.

    But I'm currently training for a half-marathon, so following a routine that is high in cardio is essential for me.

    It depends on what you mean by cardio really. I walk a lot because nothing is too far from my house and I hate public transport and have no car.

    I intentionally do cardio pretty rarely these days as strength is a priority atm. I'll usually go for a 20-40min run one or two evenings a week.

    I guess I'm the only person that hates themselves enough to do cardio six days a week, although I'm also working up to doing triathlons. I go heavy on the bike Monday and Saturday, light on the bike on Wednesday for some active recovery (about an hour @ 15-18mph) swim on Tuesdays and Fridays, and run on Thursdays... mainly because I hate it and I can't bring myself to do it twice a week.
