The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    thanks
    Guess what, your also about to realize that it's going to take a lot longer than 1 month to create a nice body

    What I meant was, you said you realized you need to work hard to look good. Then you said what can I do to look good in 1 month, kind of a contradiction to your new enlightenment, if you get my drift. I suppose you could do some cardio 3-4 days a week and get on a routine, but if you want that great beach body your going to have to work on it all year round-it won't come in a month. Oh yea, the karate will help too with flexibility and that could be considered cardio as well. Horse back riding doesn't seem like much of a workout, though.

    What's your diet like?
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    I'm going to have to dissagree with you there.

    As for Diet: regular for someone who is not watching her diet, probably a lot of things i shouldn't eat.
    I noticed that when i was a vegan for Lent for 2 month, I lost about 3 pounds and I felt much better.
    But I like chicken, so I can't be a vegan even if i try. I had this idea of eating chicken/meat once a week, then fish/seafood maybe 1-2 times a week, and then the rest all vegie. does that sound good?

    Chicken is good as long as it's eaten clean-just make sure you don't eat fast food or too many fats. ARe you a member at any gym or do you have access to equipment? What I meant about the horse back riding thing is that while it may raise your heart rate it is not a significant enough of a resistance workout to change your body structure.

    I'm not a member of a gym, but there is a small gym in my apartment comlex.
    Thanks for clarifying what you meant when you said that horse back riding is not much of a workout. I get very mad when people say that riding takes no effort to do, because to them it looks like the horse does all the work

    Ain't nothing like a bunch of horny guys trying to be subtle.

    And like Hahn already said, a great body isn't going to come in a month. It's something that you work on. In a month time you might be able to add a little bit of muscle, and drop a little bit of weight (4-5 poundish) but there isn't going to be a miracle transformation. Though, by the fact you sound fairly active and don't have bad stats at all I'd say you don't exactly need the complete miracle.

    As for a workout, I'd try a simple upper/lower split or a full body twice a week. Just do a search for one on here if you want. Either one will provide you decent results and help your body adjust to lifting. Don't fall under the "high reps, low weight" theory that many of your sex go for, but follow a typical rep scheme (though concentrate on form before you go heavy as you can). If you do something like this, then when you come back from your vacation you can change it up to a more convential split.. try the year round attempt to look good.

    with a proper diet and good exercise you can loos 1.5 to 2lbs of body fat a week and maintain it.

    I'd think that horseback riding is actually quite strenuous. I'd also imagine that an experienced rider would have one hell of a strong abdominal/back/core area from staying upright while riding a horse. That's a lot of activity, so if you keep doing that I don't see the need for additional cardio... It really depends what your goals are if you want to look what you percieve as good If you think you need to lose fat (which I sincerely doubt you need to...) or add LBM that will change things a little. Being an experienced athlete you know results won't come in a month, but only with a lot of dedication and consistency.

    Riding only makes your legs hurt if you just start out riding, and if you do too much work for your horse (meaning he's not listening to your leg ques) abs are very important because they help move the body while riding, and arms get exercise too, lifting the saddle anyways you guys should try it, then we'll see if you think it is not exercise

    OK....now, which one is you? j/k I saw no prob in any of the pics. You look good, the car looks good, the horsies look good. Not to worry. Starting a workout routine wont do anything but help. But I don't think you're gonna get anybody at the beach trying to push you back into the water.
