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 vs Lifting ?????

    I just started doing cardio along with a strict cutting diet, and was wondering if it might be a good idea to cut down a little on my lifting, doing fewer sets but still at high intensity.
    I don't know cuz I really LOVE lifting but I don't wanna overload my body's recuperation ability.

    What to do, what to do?

    how many days a week do you lift? how many do you do cardio? how much are you doing (volume) during your lifts? How many times a week does each body part get trained?

    I lift 4 days a week, each body part gets trained once a week. I was going to do cardio 3-4 times a week, on my off days and maybe one early am on a lifting day too. I usually lift 40-50 min. Should that be less? I go as heavy as I can (not much) for 6-10 reps. I don't know if that's what you meant by volume.

    I would lift the same, keep cardio around 1.5 hours a week total and only on off days.....it may be good to have one day that you do nothing.....keep your diet in check and give it some time....
