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?

    true or bollox?

    that doing cardio after weight is good for fat burn because you are glycogen depleted?

    it's best done in the morning on an empty stomach but yes, after weights cardio will burn of whatever glycogen it has left avaliable and convert to fat burning. if you did cardio alone you'd have to do 20-30 minutes(assuming you've eaten at anytime before you do it) just to start the conversion phase. so to plainly answer your question, true.

    I've heard that before but I can't answer for sure. For me, I'm exhausted after weights...but maybe that's cause I do cardio first. I don't know....

    Cardio after weights to preserve your energy for weights.

    After you lift weights, get home and feed them muscles. Don't worry about cardio; safe that for a different time.

    technically yeah.....cardio after weights would encourage your body to burn fat, because you are closer to glycogen depleted.

    However, some people have jobs where they have to get up at the "Butt-Crack of Dawn." Therefore, its hard to get up even earlier to do it before breakfast. I'd say if doin it before breakfast interferes with your schedule, then do it after you lift.

    Yes, the best time to do cardio is when cortisol levels are elevated and the body is already tapping into muscle aminos.

    I would say after a weights session is a bad time. Yes your glycogen stores maybe depleted, but from where ??? Everywhere or your chest, legs, arms ???? Your gonna cause muscle loss as well as fat loss after a workout. Always split the two. You need to get nutriants into that body after a intense weights session.

    you have about 30 mins to get a carb/protein source into your system after you lift, so do 20 min of pretty high intense cardio, stretch for 5 min, then your body will be like a sponge and just soak up those nutients

    *** Glycogen depletion can be site specific, therefore if you did your upper body then ran you wouldn't nearly be in as bad shape if you ran after doing your legs.
