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?

    it's really up to you and how you feel, i've trained with little sleep and i was fine, some can and some can't.If you feel extremely tired then rest, on to the next day

    Know your own body.... Last night I was up to 1am watching the UFC and up again at 5:30am this morning when my son woke up. Today was back day. I knew doing deads I would probably just hurt myself, so I did my normal workout without any deads and after struggling through the first 2 sets I hit my normal stride and actually bested some of last week's lifts.

    Know your own limits

    Agreed 100%. I have varying experience when training on too little sleep. Sometimes it's fine, sometimes it's just completely crap and I should have stayed home.

    ...oh, and I'm a girl.

    Well I figure I won't be able to do as many reps and/or sets and plus my body will take longer to recover between sets. So usually if I don't get at least 6-7 hours of sleep I won't lift, in fact I'll just take a nap and then lift after the nap. I suppose most people don't have enough time to pull something like that though.
