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?

    Advise for combining cardio with weights

    Hi,

    I looked at this magazine called muscle media 2 weeks back. There's this body-for-life program that suggests that weights
    must be done in combination with cardio, typically:

    Wk 1:
    Mon-upper body
    Tue-Intense Cardio
    Wed-lower body
    thu- Intense cardio
    Fri-Upper body
    Sat- Intense Cardio
    Sun-Rest

    Wk 2:
    Mon-Lower body
    Tue-Intense Cardio
    Wed-Upper body
    thu- Intense cardio
    Fri-Lower body
    Sat- Intense Cardio
    Sun-Rest

    Alternate between wk 1 & 2 for the next 12 weeks.

    I tried it for the first 2 weeks & found that my muscle could not
    grow as much as when I just do 1 cardio per week. Is this slow
    progress cause by unsuitability of the above program?


    Incidentally, I am an endomorph!

    well....how long have you been training?

    this program might be unsuitable for you,...depends on your background. For me it wouldn't be conducive to progress, because it would be overtraining for me as far as the weights go. (incidentally i do cardio about 5-6 times a week)
    A little learning is a dangerous thing...

    I have been training for 3 months.

    I think I will cut back on the cardio to 2 session.
