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?

    Low BP

    I am wondering is there anything wrong with having a lower heart rate. My resting HR is about 55 -65bmp and when I do cardio I average 120-140bpm. I am currently on an EC stack and when I workout with a friend his HR is higher than mine. Tops I still get about 150-170 at max and that is sprinting.

    Now I know that high BP is bad, but what about low. And do these numbers seem low or is this average.

    Nothing wrong with that AJ, a low heart rate shows that your fit, i.e. your heart is strong therefore requiring less beats to pump the blood around the body to the specific areas.

    When i was at high school and in the cross country team i had a RHR of 47, although now it stands around 75bpm

    The only limits are the one's you place on yourself...
