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?

    Good routine/Bad routine?

    Hey guys/gals,
    Great site and very informative. Do work out routines have to include weight lifting? Does pushups, sit-ups, crunches, chin-ups (forward and reverse grips), and dips work just as well for someone starting out? Iíll be heading to boot camp in September and would like to tone a bit and be fit enough to endure it. My routine for now includes:

    Push-ups Ė 2 sets at 30 seconds each
    2 sets at 20 seconds each

    Sit-ups - 2 sets of 25
    Crunches - 2 sets of 25

    Pull-ups
    (reverse grip) 5 sets of 5
    (forward) 3 sets of 5

    Other questions I have include:

    Push ups and forward grip pull-ups, do they work the same muscles? Sometimes I canít do any after my push ups and reverse grip pull-ups.

    Will running cancel out my work out routine?

    I am about 5í 6Ē and 128lbs(it varies either way). I donít have a specific diet I adhere to. I just watch my candy and junk intake. Iím big on eggs, tuna, chicken, rice, that kind of stuff. And drink a lot of water. After each workout I drink a Twin Labs Creatine Fuel cocktail thing. 2 scoops in 8oz of water per the directions. Donít know if it helps, I get mixed reviews on that. If anyone could just tell me if this sounds like a sensible workout routine Iíd really appreciate it. I donít have a gym close by and with gas prices nowadays Iíd rather do what I can at home. I do have a bar and some weights lying around, just not sure if its really necessary for my needs. Thanks a lot.

    Hey, I don't do too much with the legs except jogging. Sorry to make you dizzy. I was trying to describe my situation and questions as accurately as possible. I do apologize. I am going to stop or cut down on the creatine though. It hits my stomach hard and makes me feel sick. Not a feeling I want

    For Boot camp, this should be allright.....since this is the type of stuff you will be doing....you're not going to be in a gym lifting weights. You might want to think about adding in some rope climbing and other exercises that will help you with the obstacle courses.
