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 after a workout a good idea?

    Recently I started to do 10 minutes of running right after I finished my workout. Is this a good thing or does this interact with the workout that I just did? I know it's better off to do my cardio on my rest days since I am less tired but I just want to know if it's a good idea to mix cardio right after a hard workout .

    I've always heard that if you're going to do both on the same day, even in small amounts, you should always lift first.

    I don't really think it's going to detract from your workout...unless you really start taxing yourself. 10 minutes isn't doing a whole lot of anything, except keeping the blood flowing faster a little longer.

    Bottom line, though...whatever makes you stay in the gym, and happy with yourself. We're ALL different animals.
    If it were easy, EVERYONE would look good!

    IMO no cos you are in a highly catabolic state as it is. On saying that your muscle glycogen levels are depleted so you will burn fat very quickly.

    10 mins is not that much, but i would consume a protein shake, or at least half of one, just before to help begin reverting your catabolic state.

    I would say go for it not to much though. I get on the bike for 20 mins and do super intense cardio in spurts on and off for like 2 3 minutes at a time until i get my breath back. On a non work out day or weekend if I have extra energy i may do it on a lift day. No more than may 2 3 times a week at that. But it does help[ and it feels good to no it takes a little longer to get winded. I still make gains in strenth though never had any problems.

    and I think 10 minutes of runnig is fine because to me running is way harder form of cardio than the bike.
