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?

    Please Stop Quoting Routines...Thanks

    Does anybody else find it mildly annoying when somebody has their routine all layed out for us to comment on, and there's always at least one person that will quote their entire routine and then write one line under it saying, "That's not that bad of a routine, but do more squats." Is it really neccessary to quote their routine in your post? Like we'll think you're making that comment about somebody elses routine?!?! I mean, c'mon. Stop wasting space.

    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    Cardio
    Odd weeks/ mornings or separate from weight training

    Saturday 30-35 min at whatever speed and incline I feel good with.

    Diet
    Diet alternates from 5 meals on odds to 6 meals on evens. Protein intake is between 150-180 depending on week. Carbs are higher on odds. Usually 3 complex and 3 simple carb servings / day. 2 cheat meals on odds, 1 cheat day on evens.

    4 ltrs water / day

    So far, I've been on the new diet 2 weeks. Energy level is up compared to old, But I get really hungry on even weeks, even with the extra serving. I've had to get up in the middle of the night to down a shake. I think I'm on metabolic overdrive because I've dropped about 4 lbs and waist has gone down another inch (thought it was water, but the weight's consistently off). None of my lifts have suffered though. They've actually all gone up (perhaps not as hard when you're as weak as I am ).

    Your comments and suggestions are welcome
