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?

    First, I'd recomend re-reading the nutrition article that is attached to the routine. For more information, you could read the full nutrition article by Daniel in the articles section. This should explain better than any of us could how you can manipulate the calories to lose the bodyfat while gaining the muscle. Your nutrition will play a bigger role in body proportions than added cardio.

    With that being said, I think some conditioning exercise is a great benefit. Since you are new to this routine, I would suggest ONE day of additional cardio per week. See how you recover from the additional work, if everything is going fine after a few weeks, then you can add in another day of conditioning. Just keep tabs on your recovery and progress, and add extras in slowly in order to keep on top of any changes that might occur.

    I would definetly try kettle bell snatches for 2 minutes they are really tough and you burn a ton of calories you can do these with a few other variations and there is your cardio. Good Luck!!!
