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?

    Hit the weights for sure. It will help you hold on to muscle while you drop the weight. Also, when you lift weights your metabolism is sped up for a few hours afterwards, as opposed to cardio where the calorie burning benefits are over as soon as your heart rate returns to normal. But cardio is a good idea too because it will help you burn some calories, but mostly just because it is good for the heart.

    Losing weight will require that you take a close look at your diet though. Check out the diet and nutrition forum.

    No.

    Other way around.

    WEIGHT loss is diet.

    Fat loss happens if you can somehow convince your body to hang onto muscle (that's the heavy weightlifting part). As an added perk, the lifting raises your metabolism for hours (and even days) after you lift. Cardio won't do this.

    Cardio lets you eat slightly more while you maintain a caloric deficit.

    As someone who has lost >100lbs, weight lifting is where its at. I've seen many other people that have done the same as me, and they are all now just sacks of flabby skin. Its gross. Lift hard, eat good, and if your bored, do some cardio.
