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?

    POST what's most effective for you when cutting

    Although this is a Training thread, I s'pose you can add a little of other things eg. supplements and diet.

    I'll start with myself. After gd advices from some guys here, I got myself some flax seed oil, GNC pill form.

    I eat the same but sometimes, I slack. Chips and what nots. But I haven't touched soft drinks for months.

    My routine is
    Mon - Chest, Shoulders, Delts and Tris
    Tues - Cardio and abs
    Wed - Legs
    Thurs - Cardio and abs
    Fri - Bis and back
    Sat - Cardio or catch up with lagging body part.

    Here is the result :

    Date Height Weight Waist Hips Fat Lean
    Recorded (in) (lbs) (in) (in) (lbs) (lbs)
    07/17/02 63.6 155 32.0 38.5 46 109
    07/06/02 63.6 159 32.2 40.0 50 109
    07/04/02 63.6 158 32.5 40.0 50 108
    07/02/02 63.6 158 33.0 40.0 51 107

    07/06/02 31 12
    07/04/02 32 12
    07/02/02 32 12

    I think what works for me could be the Flax. I have to add that last week I did more cardio than usual. ie. 4 instead of 3 or 2 days. Each cardio at 45mins of skipping. I take Myoplex Low Carb at 1 pack per day.

    Care to share?

    I find eating less very effective.
    Squats work better than supplements.

At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Hi Paul.

    Anything in particular or eating less of everything in general?

    More cardio; limit your carbs and sodium intake.

    Stray. Sounds sensible. I tend to like salty food or savoury stuffs. I haven't been very successful reducing my sodium intake. It's a "salty" tooth instead of sweet I guess.

    No more cadio, he's got plenty in there.
    What are you trying to do, that was never really stated. Just simply lose weight?

    I guess he means he needs tips for his cutting phase.

    I love sodium too, but when I'm trying to cut for summer it's gotta go.sure foods taste like arse but every little bit helps.

    It's a she.

    TTBB> Lose weight and build muscle. I know some of you are of the opinion that it is quite impossible to lose weight and maintain but at least, I want to be toned and not flabby.

    Lifting split looks good. more specifics would be helpful (what do you do each day). perhaps you shoudl start a journal.

    At this stage of the game, yes, I suggest focusing on your diet. figure out how many calories you eat, and assess how much fat you drop a week. Go from there.

    Y'know. It's strange but I started off with 4 but mostly 5 times per week of cardio, each of them after a session of lifting and then I got stuck. ie. lost no more weight.

    Then I dropped to 2 times a week and then only last week moved it to 4 times. After that, measured bodyfat and all that and it dropped.

    Perhaps dropping it at some stage might help.

    Proper nutrition: http://pages.prodigy.net/lmzbz/ng.html

    10-15 minutes HIIT cardio first thing every morning on an empty stomach (I workout late afternoons so this works out well for me).
