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

    I am wondering if you guys follow the same rules for cardio as you do w/ using weights. What i mean the ratio of carbs to protein in your shake, and then the meal about an hour later.

    And while I got you here what ratios do you use after a workout, then in your meal after.

    I don't.

    I don't necessarily eat right after doing cardio if that's all I do.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. 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

    I has a blog.

    When doing cardio, I focus on what I eat BEFORE I work out more than after.

    About 1/2 an hour before intense cardio workout I take in about 70/20/10 (c/p/f) and I wait 45 minutes after to eat again. Afterward, I pretty much eat what I want as long as it's not sugar. Usually what I want works out to a piece of fruit and some cottage cheese.

    My theory behind this is that my body will need the energy and the glucose from the pre-meal to keep from metabolizing my muscles. That and I like eating like that before my cardio.
    Now in pain, only working out the walking sticks.

    I try not to eat before, and not right after either. I will do it in the morning when I wake up, then I will go about my day, but I try not to eat before, while, or very soon after cardio.
    Second place is just a generic term your mom created to make you not feel bad about losing, because second place is actually first loser!

    If your doing a HIIT cardio session and don't eat before then wouldn't your body go into a catabolic state? wouldn't the same window of oppertunity apply since you are working your muscles.
