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?

    Boxing and bodybuilding?

    Hey Guys I am starting up boxing next week, and I am curious how I can do both bodybuilding and boxing? I will Train for boxing 3 times a week, and I was hoping To do 2 full body days at the gym. My split would look something like this
    Monday- boxing
    Tuesday Full body
    Wensday off
    Thursday Boxing
    Friday Full body
    Saturday boxing
    sunday rest

    How does this look, or does anyone have any suggestions like maybe workout in morning and boxing at night?
    Also note I am only doing boxing as cardio it is a form of cardio class

    Seems fine to me. A lot of people make great progress with 2 full body routines a week and upper/lower splits as well. I hate to see someone just say "bodybuilding" though because it involves so much more than actually hitting the weights. Are you trying to drop fat or gain muscle? When someone younger simply says bodybuilding, it makes me think of someone reading muscle mags and lifting without actual thought to nutrition. Thats how I first started out.

    Well I remember before when I did this I lost quite a bit of fat in two months 1000 calories per practice, but I am wanting to get the big 3 up, and maintain my chest and arm mass, and I know thats umost impossible with boxing.

    1000 Calories per boxing practice? I doubt that. If you get the big 3 up you'll most likely be retaining any muscle mass regardless. Just eat to compensate the extra activity of boxing.

    A boxing class is not real boxing. Its just another cardio fad, like a spin class. Lift 4 days a week and do your cardio class the other 2.

    You say "bodybuilding" but then say "big 3", so what I was doing might actually suit you. Box your 3 days and lift 3 days. For lifting I was rotating through the typical westside days(example: Mon-ME squat, Wed-ME bench, Fri-DE squat, Mon-DE bench, Wed-ME squat, etc.). The first lift of the day would be your ME, or DE, work and then I set up my assistance work like an upper/lower bodybuilding split. If you prefer lifting full body, twice a week, I just started doing that myself, so you could check out the most recent posts in my journal to see how I've set that up.

    You don't burn as many Calories as you think when you workout. People over estimate it all the time.
