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?

    Post-workout nutrition on a "light" day?

    ok, well today i did legs, and i usually do some direct calf work as well, but today my legs were totally burned out and i didnt get a chance to do any calve raises or anything.

    should i just skip it for one week?

    or i was thinking i could go 2 the gym tomarrow and just work my abs and calves and maybe even my forearms for a change.

    but i was wondering, if i would go to the gym and work my forearms,abs, and calves, should i still take my normal post-workout shake of 22g of protein and 60g of dextrose? or should i lower the amount of dextrose since the weightlifting session wont be working any "big" muscles?

    im not sure what is right or wrong, but just as you suggested, i cut my dextrose in half on lighter days. I think because you are not depleting glycogen stores as much, there is not such a great need for post workout carbs.

    Werd....What Junior said is what I do in that situation. It rarely ever happens...but in the case it does.
