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?

    Give Me Some Motivation!

    Hopefully, as of tomorrow, I will be exercising first thing in the morning. I have a crosstrainer and sometime I might take the dog for a long walk, but only when it brightens up in England.
    I've heard it's best to exercise pre-breakfast, is this correct? I sometimes feel faint when exercising, even though I am exercising at a steady pace, so I don't know what impact an empty stomach will have.
    Anyway, I have gotta do it, so what can I keep in mind to help me do this? I am not a morning person.
    Try your best!

    your body is already in a catabolic state when you wake up so working out on an empty stomach will only lead to more catabolism. you should eat something, especially if you . try some oats and a shake or something along those lines. if you are doing cardio, i would suggest at least a shake so that you can get some protein into your system. as far as motivation, look in the mirror and ask yourself if you are satisfied with what you see? the answer should motivate you. if not, try some loud music

    ^ I worked out on an empty stomach, early in the morning and CAME SO CLOSE to puking it wasn't funny. At all. No, seriously, stop laughing.

    Thanks you three. I just heard that an empty stomach helps burn off fat quicker, but I feel weak already, as I have just woken up, and haven't eaten since 6pm last night.

    Will, I wouldn't be laughing if that happened to me either. I know when I should stop when doing cardio, as all I can think about is fruit or something which contains sugar and I feel a bit too weak than normal.

    Anyway, I shall look in the mirror and head off to the cellar and try my best. Thank youu.

    You could try a glass of orange juice before you go. I'm also trying to do this, but I'm on holidays at the moment, and for some reason I cannot wake up before 8am, no matter what time I go to bed. My brain has conditioned an aversion to early starts in holidays.
