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 before Lifting?

    I'm new, of course... so what I'm wondering is does a Cardio workout (10-15 minutes) on the treadmill, elipsor or whatever hurt or help before lifting. I usually do so, then go do my routine for the day. Or does it do neither?

    It would probably hurt your lifting. Do it either after lifting or on non-lifting days.

    I'd say that depends on how tired you are after 10-15 minutes. After 10-15 minutes of running I'm pretty much ready to pass out (yes, very bad, I know.) so it wouldn't be a smart choice for me. But if for you 10-15 minutes is a breeze I'd say go for it just to warm up..

    just my 2 cents.

    10-15 minutes is not much of a cardio workout though. Like you said "just to warm up." That is fine and a good idea. I'm with sysopt on this one though.

    10-15 min is great, for a warm-up. If you want a TRUE cardio session go 30-45 min AFTER your workout. Of course if your cutting do cardio more often and if your gaining do less and all that other crap.
