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?

    the best cardio i know of for dropping pounds is interval training. after doing a warm up, run at 75% of your max for 5 minutes then slow down to a fast walk for 2 minutes rest. then do 80% of max for 5 minutes then fast walk for 2 minutes rest. then do 85% for 5 minutes with a 2 minute fast walk....and so on until you do 5 minutes at your top speed and make sure to do a full cool down by walking until your heart rate comes back down. (this can be done running on a track, outside, treadmill, on bike oustide, stationary bike, eliptical machine etc.). if 5 minutes is too long at first then only do 3 minutes with a 1 minute fast walk rest.
    as for toning up the muscles....light weights with 12-15 reps just so that by the last rep she can feel the burn by isn't at failure.
