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?

    Cardio or lifting first?

    Hey guys and girls,

    Im 5 10, 199 with a little bit of a gut and a decent build. Im trying to lose the gut and gain some muscle. I was thinking about doing WBB #1 but im worried that i wont lose the fat that i want. So, should i do some cardio first for a couple of weeks before i hit the weights?

    Thanks

    As of right now, i dont really have a routine, thats why i was looking at Wbb #1. Ive been running .5 mile on the track, then 20 minutes of cardio using elliptical, bikes, etc. Then id do some arm and shoulder exercises. Ive only been doing this for a couple weeks. My diet isnt the best, but im working on that. Cutting out the chips, candy, etc. Ive already cut out pop.

    If you insist on doing any significant cardio on lifting days, make sure to separate them by 5-6 hours at least.

    We know.

    That's why you need to do the lifting first, OR separate the cardio from the lifting.

    You'll burn more fat that way, AND preserve/build more muscle.

    Really.

    Sounds good, but remember diet is key to weight loss. You can do WBB1 and cardio till you die and never lose a pound if your diet isn't in check.

    I haven't done more than a half hour cardio total in the 10 weeks I've been doing WBB1 and according to the gym scale I've lost 10 pounds (most of it in the past 3 weeks, despite my diet not changing the entire time). Watch the diet and lift heavy and watch your lifts go up and weight go down.
