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 Before or After Workout

    I am in my little yearly cutting mode for summer and I wanted your thoughts of the best time to do cardio before or after weight training. I have always done cardio after lifting so I am not tired when trying to push weight.

    But then other people do cardio before...

    any thoughts?

    **** cardio. Structure your workout appropriately to induce hypertrophy. This will increase your basal metabolism and allow you to lean out without having to get on cardio gear. What are you, some 30something lady with huge thighs or a man?

    Do it on your off days if possible.

    If not, after is your best bet.

    lift firsttttt should deplete your glycogen levels in your muscles enough.. then cardio and your body can't help but burn fat at this time
    excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, dreaming more than others think is practical, and expecting more than others think is possible.

    I agree with this. Although I think it would be ok to do cardio in the early morning, then do a weight workout in late afternoon, too.

    If you do it after, should you drink your postworkout shake in between? Or should you let that beautiful anabolic window slip by you forever?

    (I think that drinking the pwo shake in between would make me hurl.)

    Sorry for the hijack, btw.

    After is what I figured, I will continue this. Oh I should have mentioned that I am guy who is 23 years old about 6'3" 250-252.

    A stay relatively lean all year so I only am going to lose 10-15 pounds at the most. Which really isn't that difficult.

    Thanks for they replies!
