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?

    Routine with a good mix of heavy lifts & high intensity?

    I tried ss and bgb for over a year and now I want to try something new. I'm thinking Layne Norton but I'd like to see what else is out there

    any suggestions? (Please provide link or write out what the actual routine)

    sorry i know this isn't what you're looking for but aren't all heavy lifts performed with high intensity? Do you mind being a little more specific?

    SS isn't really high intensity... I mean high intensity as in getting your heart rate up/near failure/p90x type of stuff

    What are your goals?

    Depending on that, I would recommend one of a few things.

    Modify the intensity/resistance of your weight training, but do intensity intervals for cardio. I gained 15 pounds but lost 10% bodyfat doing this for about 6 months. People called me a liar when I said I gained 15lbs cuz I looked like I lost 20+.

    Split upper/lower routine 4x/week (2 upper, 2 lower) - Perform intense intervals 2-3x/week (pick the days you want) - do a 'fun' cardio 2x week

    This was my breakdown:

    Monday: Heavy Upper body, intervals
    Tuesday: Heavy Lower body, intervals
    Wednesday: Rest
    Thursday: Supplemental/Heavy upper body, intervals
    Friday: Cardio (lengthy jog, usually)
    Saturday: Heavy legs, intervals/basketball/random cardio, depending how I felt (pick something)
    Sunday: Rest

    This will absolutely KILL your body. Most people don't suggest doing intervals after you weight train, but I have to say the benefits I saw (strength gains, body composition shift, more agile, quicker/faster) were second to none.

    If you are training for something specific, mix some agility training in there, and always.... always.... ALWAYS make sure you train flexibility!

    That has to be over a lb of lean muscle every week while on a reduced calorie diet?
