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?

    what do you guys think. next week, monday morning, i am embarking on a fat loss journey, i have my diet pretty well set as far as what i am going to eat, lowering carbs to between 60 and 120, protein will be in the 200-23o range(if i can fit in the food like i want to ) and fats will be in the 50 range(all grams of cousrse) and my fats will be like olives, nuts, naturally occuring fats in meats, ect. i am going to be using soy prtoein and whey prtoein shakes to help with the protein part, multi vitamins and vitamin c supps will be in there too as well as a post workout supp(creat-tech, less expensive version of cell-tech). so you see the diet may need a little tweaking then again it may not.

    ok, back to my point. i am thinking of going heavy and keeping things in the 4-6 rep range. some people like the 10-12, 6-8, and 8-10. what do yall think. i just want some opinions on this, some input to help finalize my new program. i'll also keep you guys posted on my progress.

    Firemedic, your cals are WAY to low. I did a quick caculation and its about 1700 cals or so, give or take a few. My opinon is its just to low man. I would up my protein a little bit, and along with the carbs. I would rearrange ALL macrounits.

    Don't change your routine just because your dieting. Keep it the same. Only change it if you feel you'll benefit from lower reps anyway.

    I agree with all of'em. First, I'd increase keep your carbs to around 100-120. Since your carbs are so low, I'd raise the protein to around 250+. If you wanna keep the carbs where they're at, then make sure you comepensate for them with protein and some fat.

    thanks for the input fellas. protein in the 250 range will be hard to do seeing how my schedule is, i may just have to cut down my sleep to 6 hours a night and get up 2 hrs earlier to fit in the extra food. anyway, i am going to change my routine, the one i got now is just not working too well, i think i'll go with the 4-6 range and do like 6 sets for larger muscles and 2 for smaller ones. i'm not 100% sure yet, i mean this is going to be a long term commitment and i want to make sure it will be worth the effort, although if i could get my hands on some clen it i could progress faster.

    Use a routine you knw works for you to add muscle... that will be one that will work to keep muscle while you are dieting.

    As I recall, firemedic, you are a pretty big dude... cals no lower than 10 cals per pound of BW, and I would start at 12.

    thanks for the advice paul, i won't mention your alias, lol. this is what i did yesterday for ches:
    bench 1x135
    1x225
    1x275
    1x255
    1x 245
    1x 225

    nothing else, then i did some front delt raises-2x8, some crunches-2x50, and some of those wrist rollers where you roll the weight up on a rope/stick combo. then i did like 12 minutes on the airdyne cycle. today i got a bball game which will give me some cardio for today and tomorrow is my day to play bball with my buds from the gym plus leg day. any ideas on that one. i was thinking of squating, though i may be too tired, lol. friday is back/arms. this week i was going to start but i think it may be better to ease into it to get used to getting up earlier, eating different and doin cardio argain. gotta lay off the sweets now, tuttut .
