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?

    6-7XWeek Program?

    Hello everybody!

    Well right now I am 5'10 and 163 lbs. I would guess that I am around 15-16% BF (down from 220 and 28%). I still have somewhat of a gut but I am much stronger and I can actually see my veins!


    Well I was just wondering if anyone could design a plan where I can go to the gym like 6-7 days a week and lift without overtraining. I ask because I like going to the gym everyday - it helps me eat right and gives me something to do during the summer when Im not working or playing lacrosse, or else I just sit at home and eat .


    Thanks!

    No way to go to the gym 6-7 days a week without overtraining, unless 2-3 was just abs and cardio. What position do you play? I played long-pole mid for the club team at my college. I graduated two years ago, but still coach them. I miss playing all the time.

    read up on it, you can devise a regimen so that you train 6 times a week.
    "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."

    Yep what he said.

    cphafner, why can't one train 6 days a week without over-training?

    6-7 days of heavy lifting? There's no way without overtraing. If 2-3 are straight cardio you can train 6-7 days.

    Well you're partially right. 6-7 days of training to failure wouldn't be a good idea if you're doing it long term.

    However, if you train submaximally and schedual your program accordingly, there shouldn't be a problem.
