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?

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

But I want you to know I like you, okay? You're just a pretty cool guy.

    Hey I am always looking forward to save as much time as possible. Shall I stop doing 5min cardio warmup, pre workout stretching, 5min post workout cardio cooldown and post workout stretching?

    Is cardio warmup/cooldown unnecessary as well?

    Someone please reply.

    I believe warmup/cooldown is necessary even though I always forget to cooldown.

    *** Sure you can.Just tailor your warm so that it is more specific to what you will be doing. Ex, if you are going to lifts weights then lift so that you "warm" your nervous system up as well as the joints that are going to be used in your workout.


    5min post workout cardio cooldown and post workout stretching?

    *** This would depend on you're level of flexibility at the moment. Is the full ROM in you're muscles limited?


    Is cardio warmup/cooldown unnecessary as well?

    *** I wouldn't worry so much about that.
    As a athlete it would be different.

    Oh, weightlifting can increase flexibility because whenever you are contracting a muscle (or group of muscles), you are stretching the opposing muscle or muscles. [/B]
    *** Do you care to explain this in further detail?
    Are you implying that as the agonist contracts the anatgonistic muscle is stretched?

    Yes, not to any great degree, but yes it is. I was actually stating it, not implying it .

    Chris the antagonistic muscle usually is relaxed as the agonist muscle is contracting, since this is the case how would there be a stretch involved?

    I hardly ever stretch. I probably should because of my advanced years, but I consider my warmup sets a form of stretching.

    Chris - weightlifting and flexibility - are you talking about range of motion?

    I think stretching in conjunction with cardio is a pretty good idea. maybe I should do more cardio!
