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?

    weight maintenance but losing fat!

    I wasn't to sure where to post this but what the heck I'll post it here. I am currently 210 ibs at 6ft however I have 16% bodyfat. I want to reduce the fat to at least 10% but I would like to maintain my weight. Is this anyway possible. I heard about fat spot reduction. Whats that. My ultimate goal is going to be 220lbs at about 8-10% bodyfat.

    You're asking to lose weight (drop BF) and gain weight (lean mass) at the same time, this itís very difficult to do. You decide what you want first either gain lean mass or drop body fat.

    Also this question belongs in the diet forum.

    IMO you should bulk up to over 220lb, then cut.

    Thanks miller! How much weight do you think I should cut at 16% to get to 10%? Sorry everyone (who reads this) for not posting this to the diet forum. I promise I won't do it again. Wear are those hankys?

    I forgot to mention in that last posting that I don't really want to lose weight but if its the only possibility to lose the bodyfat% well so be it.

    You asked what fat spot reduction is...It's an impossibility. People are somehow convinced that by doing crunches they'll lose their fat gut. Well, it just ain't so. You've got to eat right and workout. Doing crunches will help strengthen you abs and develop the muscle, but you'll never see that without dropping the fat. A year ago, I was almost the same as you. Right at 6ft and 215lbs. I lost down to about 190lbs by just lifting weights and eating right. By eating right, I mean cutting down on the bad carbs and increasing protein intake. Now I'm back up to 200lbs, but it's lean muscle weight now.

    You might lose fat and gain muscle if your new. MY question is are you happy at 16% If not cut down to 10%. Keep in mind you might gain fat when trying to put on muclse, so could end up higher then 16%. What can you live with and what do you want first.

    agree with miller time. Bulk up some more and then cut back and you will look better for it. Also, the more muscle mass you have the easier it is to lose fat (with correct nutrition to prevent muscle loss)
