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?

    weight train..protein..then cardio

    ok im tryn to figure out how i can fit all my exercise in my dad. i work from 3-11pm and go home and try to get to sleep as fast as i can. wake up at 6am eat and hit the gym by 7am. for about 45-60 min. then drink a shake. now i was wondering because i dont want to "starve" me muscles after a workout waiting for the cardio to end if i could workout eat a protein shake then go to the track to walk. so it woud be like a 30-45 min. wait) i dont eat too many carbs so the protein only shake wont really matter. but like im thinking just a nice 30 min. walk after i drink the shake. or should i revearse it and do cardio early as hell and eat and train?



    thanks
    calvin

    ps. i didnt know if his should go in training forum or diet but im not asking a diet queston more a training one. thanks you

    I have had the same thought.

    I wondered how much muscle I can lose during a short walk

    (I only do 20 minutes)

    I figure if the shake is ready to go it's not really a big wait.

    IMHO, Cardio (intense) is best for raising your metabolism if you are too calorie deprived on a severe cut. A good workout should have nearly the same effect.

    I don't think a 20 minute walk is going to help you a bit, unless you want to unwind a bit.

    10 minute sprint is better, but wouldn't help after a good workout anyway.

    Lots of BB people lose weight and never do cardio. I lost 20 lbs and did about 3 days of cardio (total for 12 weeks). Gained a 1/4 lb of muscle even.

    Cardio is a distance game, the farther you go the more calories you burn. The rate at which your body burns glucose is constant.

    So if the walks 1 mile in 20 minutes he burn more calories then if the ran 1/2 mile in 10 minutes.

    Its not about the calories. Its about the metabolic effects of the sprinting.

    when I do my 20min walk my heart rate is @135 which is my target heart rate for fat burning

    it might not be doing much for my V02 max but it is effective cardio
