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?

    it increases blood pressure via vasoconstriction

    it also causes sever gum rot, which is what i would be most concerned with, followed by oral cancer

    I stopped smoking at New Year - and the benefits are outstanding!

    As an example - I did a run before Christmas - and my heart rate hovered around 174bpm.

    1 week after quitting - on the same run and at same intensity - it dropped to 162bpm.

    2 weeks after quitting - did the same run - and it's now at 158bpm.

    I'm eating more (better and more consistently). Put on around 3 kgs in 2 weeks - which is great!

    I fyou want loads of good detailed info on the detrimental effects smoking has on the body - I recommend www.whyquit.com

    Hope this helps
