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?

    Counter-productvity of running and boxing --feeback please--

    I am in a large dilemma here. I recently started kickboxing and absolutely love it.

    I started weight-training seriously about 9 months ago and put on about 10-15lbs (in the first 4 months, I have been stable since because im watching my body fat).

    I am 5' 11" at about 175-180 and probably about 12% BF.

    Anyway, I am now in the gain weight mind set and want to put on some more muscle. Over the winter I want to eat like a mofo and GROW!!!

    The dilemma is that I really enjoy kickboxing and I want to concentrate on it as well. If im going to be even mildly serious I have to increase my cardio endurance. I want to start running 5 KM's 3 times a week. And increase this. This would be on top of training 4 times a week. And kickboxing 2-3 times a week.

    So I have 2 serious problems:
    1) The obvious overtraining issue.
    2) I often hear about how running is counter-productive to weight gains. Is this true?

    Comments/Suggestions?
    I always turn to the sports page first, which records people's accomplishments. The front page has nothing, but man's failures.

    Okay... do you suggest this because I will be overtraining or becasue cardiovascular exercise is counter-productive when trying to gain weight?

    Thanks

    Cardiovascular activity is great. It increases your metabolism, so you will need to eat more. That's all. If you're not gaining weight then you're not eating enough.

    Hope this helps.
