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?

    Energy Drinks: Monster Energy in particular

    The only real energy drink I've had is pre-workout, which gave me a good smooth ride throughout my training and also helped on none training days when I was crawling to get to the end of the day.

    I'm out of Pre-workout but still training hard. However, I had a couple of really long days where by the end (I teach privately) I felt sorry for the kids I was teaching because mentally and physically I was exhausted. So, I decided to pound back a Monster Energy Zero.

    I don't know if it was a placebo effect or if it worked, but I got through the last couple of hours focused. Are there drinks that definitely work? Are there ones to stay away from. I only plan on using them during working hours towards the end of the day when I need that extra boost.

    yea anything with caffeine really. but drinks like monster and redbull have much more caffeine than a coffee for example.while the caffeine will work, you can become less sensitive to it. so only use it when you need to.

    I drink well over 10 cups of coffee everyday, i just like the taste, caffeine doesnt do shit for me anymore unless im really exhausted. the same goes for pre-workout supps.

    i dont like the idea of taking mad doses of caffeine before training, while i was in the army i heard of to many incidents of very fit soldiers having heart attacks and even dying while out on a run. the shops in the infantry training camp even stopped selling energy drinks when i was there.

    I crash hard after drinking energy drinks, so I'd rather find a good pre-workout/ caff pill to take.
