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?

    rory here is an example of balance. i skipped my m4/5/6 in anticipation of going out

    i had a kobe beef burger (outstanding, generous portion) and split a seafood tower with my date. seafood tower had 2 lobster tails, 2 claws, 6 shrimp, 2 full stone crabs and 4 oysters, all chilled. so net effect? prob a couple hundred over. whatever, i never go out and i had a really good time... i usually pass on stuff like this but decided to make it a surprise at the last moment. im off to do cardio

    rory do you think separating weights/cardio is THAT beneficial? my free time at night is very limited. so basically id be:

    A. cardioing at 5am 7 days per week.. then lifting at 8pm til 9:15 4 days per week.. then coming home and immediately eating and sleeping

    OR

    B. i could just keep doing what im doing which is weights followed by 40m cardio 4 days per week and fasted cardio 3 days per week

    option B is MUCH more convenient and i dunno if the added benefit of separating the two activities will be worthwhile.

    You're going to be a broke man with all of this "2 cents" that you keep handing out.

    I definitely see where you are coming from within regards to the psychological advantages of certain programs, diets, lifting "choices", etc. One of the biggest benefits for me and the IF diet is the aspect of bowel movements (I really hate talking about this via a forum), but I can't afford to have my food process while I'm in front of a classroom.

    If I'm able to get my training schedule lined up around 1 pm or later, then I'll play around with IF, but until then I'm going to continue doing what I'm doing.

    I'd take it down. I drink 5-Star vanilla protein powder. I'll mail ya a check. I'm actually thinking of trying the strawberry flavor.

    What flavor do you normally get? I assume you're a chocolate man.

    Yea chocolate normally, although I've dabbled with vanilla in the past. I'm drinking the EAS whey right now. Pretty decent stuff for $25 for 5lb at Sams.

    what sucks is that i picked really good intial numbers for my 5x5 and now my momentum is all messed up from burning off all my sweet, precious bloat... my friday session will be pretty light to attempt to recover this and jump back into where i left off on bench, which will be the challenge. dead and squat should be fine.. ohp will be determined today.

    Whoa where'd all the volume come from. That looks 3-4x as long as normal. Nice deads. Don't you use mixed grip?

    thanks man. i do used mixed grip... but my grip was slipping w/ 325 last week.. and i dont want to start missing lifts due to grip... but i have to say that it felt weird. i think my straps are too thick for deads. i might need to get some smaller ones in width and thickness

    the volume is always there.. i usually dont post the fluff. 5x5 is a seriously underrated program.. its taxing

    might experiment with low intensity cardio on off days.

    some palm beach douche bag runs right into me leaving the water fountain. i call him on it and hes like "no you ran into me" hah. i called him a prima donna which obviously infuriated him. good times. the irony is that i'm very courteous to those who demonstrate courtesy.. but if youre a douche bag i am so vicious. oh well.
