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?

    Ab cut schedule?

    What is the best schedule to work on cutting my abs? I have some videos (8 min abs, and some yoga ab workouts) should I do it every other day like I do with my strenth-training, or is every day alright? should I just go until I can't go any farther and stop for the day, or should I take a break and hit it up agian?

    Your abs are like every other muscle, they need rest. So you shouldn't do it everyday, that would lead to overtraining.

    Your ab cutting schedule should run 7 days a week and it has little to do with training. Eat right all day every day to lose bodyfat. Getting your abs to look good is probably 90% dependant on your bodyfat percentage and only 10% dependant on how you train them.

    Train them once or twice a week however you wish to, and eat right every day.

    Look at it this way...why aren't most powerlifters ripped? It isn't because of lack of muscle, but rather because of the abundance of bodyfat.

    Seriously though, what Gino and Ironman8 said is spot on. Work the abs like any other muscle. They'll show up when there's less fat covering them.

    Even better you dont need to exercise them directly if you are squatting, deadlifting etc.

    Abs are made in the kitchen, not in the gym
