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?

    cardio on bulk

    Hey guys a question
    While bulking you are gaining fat right?yeah
    Is the fat gained in say the first month of bulking necessary for rest of bulk ? I think not but I could be wrong.
    So if you could burn this accumulated fat (or some of it) that is not necessary for the rest of the bulk you could cut bodyfat by a bit while still bulking
    Could this be done by doing cardio for an hour on rest days without impacting significantly on muscle gains,maybe consuming whey protin before this cardio would help prevent any muscle loss?
    Any views welcome.
    Cheers ronnie

    I don't really understand the question.

    Some fat gain will occur during periods of fast muscle growth.

    Cardio is good for you, but an hour a day is a bit much, I think. Maybe 20-30 minutes 3 times a week. Some intervals are good.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
