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?

    More cardio=more fat loss?

    Hi guys I have booked my vacation for Dec11, and want to get rid of the belly. I was thinking of doing 1 hour of cardio everyday until that date. Right now I am slacking and go to gym only 2 times a week and skip cardio. What do you guys think? Thanks.

    It certainly can't hurt. I'd focus more on being 100% strict on your diet from now until then though.

    I am on the same program myself! I am going on a cruise Dec 12 and am running 40-60min on weekends and non-lift days! However the most important excersize for fat loss is table pushes! LOL but seriously diet is the answer,combined with cardio and I am steadily losing fat! However I am not making the strength gains I would like to! After my cruise I am going to go on a maintenance or maybe plus 200-300 calories over the holidays to hit the iron hard! Good Luck and have fun!

    You can get a lot done in a little over a month. Get your diet in check, keeping your calories below maintenance, and do cardio when possible. The best time to start is always now.
    ain't nuttin but a peanut.

    You will have gotten stronger when the weight that feels heavy is actually heavier than the weight that feels heavy now. Then the weight that feels heavy now will be a warmup for the weight that feels heavy then. But the weight will always feel heavy or you're not lifting enough weight. Clear? -Rippetoe

    What's your diet look like? What are you doing for strength training?

    Cardio everyday is going to take its toll on your joints. I'd take at last a day if not two per week. Just eat less carbs and calories on those days.

    Dec 11 only gives you about a month.

    Here's what I would do and bear in mind it's not neccessarily the optimal way to lose fat, but in a short period I reckon it is your best bet.

    Reduce your calories and stick to a very clean diet. lean protein, moderate fat and very low carbs for each meal. Only eat a decent amount of carbs in a meal after a workout. I would also chuck in a detox day too once per week. I know it goes against the general thought on calories/macronutrients but when I used to do a couple of days detox on the run (just fruit and veggies) I used to drop weight quickly for a couple of days and felt leaner.

    Up the cardio. Every day might be overkill, but I would probably train weights 3 times a week and try and nail cardio 3-4. Also just try and keep active. Cycle or walk instead of taking the car, stuff like that.

    It all comes down the very simple formula of moving more and eating less really!
