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?

    Cardio after weight training session?

    Yes or No?

    Personal experiences?

    Some say it's better to do slowpaced cardio after a weight training to improve fatloss, others claim it interferes with your muscle recovery..

    What do you think/say?
    "When you promise yourself something, make a commitment, you can't give up. Because, when you're in the gym, you have to fulfill the promise you made to yourself. The people who can self motivate - in any field - are usually the ones who win. Regardless of talent." T. Platz

    i do it every time i lift. I have no problem maintaining muscle or strength but I lose some quality fat by running after I lift. I just do what I feel comfortable doing. Sometimes I'll run 8-10 minute miles, other times I'll only walk on an incline. I figure its good for weight loss since I have eliminated my glycogen from the lifting and my recovery time is great too.

    400(335) Bench Press
    600(520x3 2xBW) Dead Lift
    500(495x1) ATG Squat
    Total: 1500(1350)
    365 Front Squat
    consistency and intensity.
