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?

    Now that the summer is coming up I would like to loose a bit of that nasty fat around my abdomen. Now don't think I'm one of those machos, it's just that I've been bulking for quite some time now and gained a lot

    Now my question is can I loose a bit of this fat and still keep gaining ??? (because I always hear that when you cut up you loose muscle)
    BTW I've recently started running once a week for about 20 - 30 minute.

    All replies are appreciated

    Without getting into scientific details, I would say that it IS possible to gain muscle AND lose fat at the same time but that it is very difficult.

    Empiracle wisdom would say that it is better to focus on one and then the other and then go in stages. eg. 8 weeks building, 4 weeks cutting etc.

    It is possible, but extremely unlikely (unless you take steroids).

    It would depent on your BF, once it gets down to say 12%, it will be next ot imposible to gain muscle and loose any more fat.
    Diet would be the key, not cardio.
