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?

    When to do cardio

    When do people do cardio on 4 day splits? I switched routines a couple weeks ago from 3 days a week (MWF) to a 4 day/week upper-lower split on M,T,Th,F. The new routine is working well, especially for strength, but I can't seem to fit in the cardio.

    I used to do cardio on T and Th and planned to do cardio on Wed and Sat with this new routine. The problem is my legs are still sore on Wed from Squats on Tues. I moved Sat cardio to Sun because my running stride felt flat after Fri Deadlifts. I also discovered I would rather avoid working out on the weekend if possible.

    I am curious how other people fit cardio into 4 day splits. At 33, 2 or 3 miles (6:30-7:00min/mile pace) twice a week is enough cardio for me. My goals are to increase size and strength without busting out too much of a gut.

    Stats are 5'8", 175-180Lb, 285 - Squat, 315 - Bench, 330-Dead (all lifts new record in past 2 weeks)

    getfit, I am following the same split, except extra cardio day on the weekend. My cardio has been tanking since I started this split. Did your legs adjust to this split after a while or was the cardio not ever a problem for you?
