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 twice a day while bulking?

    I was told that as long as your protein intake is high, you can get away with doing cardio twice (morning, late afternoon) a day at about 30 minutes in duration. Is this true?

    The reason I ask is simply because I want to build the muscle, but I refuse to develop the gut again that normally comes with bulking. Unlike most folks, I believe it's possible to build muscle and burn fat at the same time even though if you're focusing on them both, your progress will be a little slower at both than if you were focusing on just one. But it's been working for me.

    That's pretty tough.
    If you're bulking I assume that you are lifting heavy. By doing cardio twice a day you're putting your heart in the target heart rate for 30 mins. at a time. Lifting heavy puts a strain on your heart also. I think you would probably get a higher resting heart rate, resulting in overtraining.
    Just my opinion.
    If it works for you than stick to it.
