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 workout

    I was just wondering what cardio excercise people do with their workout. I have heard some people say that if you keep your tempo up when lifting you should burn fat then. But i have also heard people say they don't do cardio with trying to build because cardio burns away some of their muscle. So do you guys run a mile once a week or what do you guys do?

    I personally don't do any cardio. I'm not lean by any means, but with a diet I could lean out without doing cardio.

    Right now I am trying to lean out, so I am running three miles three times a week.

    When I was trying to gain weight, I was running maybe three miles a week. Probably not even that much.

    I do cardio mainly b/c I play a sport in which cardiovascular fitness/recovery is important AND because I enjoy it. It also helps me stay lean, which is more of an issue for us females...

    I do a lot of interval training but mix it up with some general endurance/steady state workouts and light "recovery" type efforts as well.

    I run outside and on the treadmill indoors, do Spinning workouts (indoor interval cycling) and occasionally do the stairmachine/elliptical/rower for variety.

    I could give all to Time except - except
    What I myself have held. But why declare
    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.

    I like the elliptical machines. Very low impact so they aren't as bad on the knees as running.

    I use them every once in awhile...I find that I have to really crank up the resistance/incline to get my heart rate up where I like it to be. Any cardio machine gets really boring to me unless I can watch TV or something...

    If you're thinking about buying a cardio machine, you might want to check Consumer Reports and other reviews to gather info on reliability and quality.
