The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    BF% can be measured by calipers, bio-electrical, or underwater.

    Most people use calipers.

    Do a search on google, you can find the calculations, as well as places to purchase calipers.

    The best routine for cutting is to eat less.
    Squats work better than supplements.

    Whatever works to make you bigger.

    If you are just starting out, keep it simple.

    There is a link in my sig to some things I wrote for this website. Read 'Everything you need to know' parts 1 and 2.

    To loose fat it is necessary to eat less calories than you burn. First you need to figure out your basal metabolic rate (BMR) or calories you burn per day/week. Then you need to create a deficit up to 1000 calories per day via diet, exercise, or preferably both. Start slow. Drop calories below mainetance, lift hard. Thats it. I strongly suggest that you read the diet and nutrition articles and the WBB routines from the main site. If you are going to do it, learn and do it the right way. Good luck.
