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?

    I have the best workout for cutting...(So I think)

    I have a lot of body fat to lose...i've dropped a good amount of weight already...but i'm trying to turn it is the routine and diet I came up with...


    Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday

    30 mins of basketball to warm up, shooting around
    40 mins of lifting (circuit training, lifting to failure, 4 body parts at a time)
    30 mins of Cardio on Reebok Body Peak (heart rate around 165)

    I was reading an article with The Roc who said when he was cutting down, working 1-2 body parts a day was not using enough of his body to burn enough calories so he started working 4-5 body parts a day and it worked.

    Also, since i'm more concerned with cutting than building mass, I want to circuit train to keep my heart rate up while still gaining strength.

    I was doing Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday...but having 2 days off in a row for some reason...especially on the weekend when I tend to cheat on my diet doesn't seem good to me. Plus I think i'll feel better by only have 1 day between workout days.


    Now this is where I think I need the most help...but this is what I have right now.

    Meal 1 - Can of tropical fruit or Cereal (raisan brand/mini wheats)/Protein shake
    Meal 2 - Turkey breast sandwich
    Meal 3 - Romaine salad with a little cheddar cheese, croutons, can of tuna, olive oil and vinegar (This is actually really good).
    Meal 4 - Turkey burger and apple
    Meal 5 - Meat (fish or chicken) and veggie (green beans or salad)
    Meal 6 - Protein shake

    Also...i have to cheat sometimes...I probably have 3-4 cheat meals a week...but 1 or 2 of my cheat meals is usually fairly healthy (like chicken chow main chinese food or fried fish) But Pizza once a week is a must.

    How does this sound?

    I've tryed various routines/diets and all together i've dropped 70lbs but it seems to get harder and harder.
