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?

    Stamina gone since i bulked up

    We have just started pre season soccer training. I have put on about two stone of muscle in the last two years, but have noticed that my stamina is gone since. I am really struggling in training at the moment with regards any endurance running.

    Anybody else have this happen and if so how long before u got ur stamina back?

    Obviously gaining weight is going to put a strain on your endurance. I'd look into some vo2 max training to improve things.

    It's just your body getting used to your new weight. You will come around pretty soon, I gurantee it.

    Do some running other than soccer practice as well. You should recover the old stamina and get all that new muscle adjusted to it soon.

    If you haven't been playing soccer regularly for a while you will be out of shape, regardless of the extra weight or not.

    The reason why is because you're muscles are becoming less endured. They are getting use to being used in short bursts, like bench press, instead of long, sustained motions..like running. I bet you probably sprint faster though. It's just the way our bodies work...adaptation at its finest.

    That's not true at all. You get better at sprinting by sprinting, you get better at bench by benching, etc. There isn't some sort of carryover effect from lifting weights to running.

    I simply mean our muscles adapt to the work outs we do. If you do squats i guarntee you'll jump higher than someone that doesn't do squats. There is a carry over effect, if there wasn't..athletes might as well get rid of lifting weights, right?

    and I don't mean a basketball player, i mean just a normal guy who works out and doesn't have ridiculous genetics, but just leaves squats out of his routine.

    Also, I'm not trying to start an argument here. You're not wrong, but you're also not 100% right. Just wanted to clear that up.
