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?

    powerlifting and HIIT

    as i'm sure you can see by the number of threads ive posted on the topic, im trying to cut down on my bodyfat while trying to maintain/increase my lifts

    anyhow, is there any good way to integrate HIIT into my routine without overtraining my legs? currently i have separate days for each lift and the assists, ie:

    monday - deadlift
    wednesday - bench
    friday - squat

    and on each of those days, perform olympic lifts as well

    i'm thinking of doing AM cardio on those 3 days, then lifting later in the day. but i'd also like to incorporate some sort of HIIT in, maybe on tuesday and thursday. is this advisable, or will i burn out?

    I'd start with once a week of HIIT, and see how that goes, then add more in.

    You should be OK.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    HIT and powerlifting do not mix anyway fashion or form.

    HIT focuses alot on muscular failure to build muscle while powe rlifting involves overloading the muscle to lift more weight, and there fore there is really no god way to incorporate both in training.

    HIIT, not HIT.

    High Intensity Interval Training, not High Intensity Training.

    He's talking about sprint intervals, that type of stuff.

    i do a lot of hiit type work, but nothing on a program (football practice).. i also lift PL style. obviously there will be *some* decrease in your ability to gain strength, but i think the benefit in conditioning/gpp is better in the long run as well as the bodyfat drop
