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?

    Dan's Journal

    Hello. I have just joined the site and I can't tell everyone enough how helpful it is. My main goal is to cut down about 10 to 15 lbs. I used to work out hard in school and since have put on about 15 lbs in the past one and a half year. Here is the routine that I am going to be following for probably the next 6 to 8 weeks. I do a lot of moutain biking for my cardio and bike a lot around town rather than driving. If anyone has any suggestions please make them. Today marks the day where I am going to be very serious about my eating and daily workout routines. Cheers to you all.

    Lots of Cardio in there. Have you looked at the WBB1 or 2? What about BGB? I am using that and I love it as a workout plan.

    Yes I am doing lots of biking as my cardio because I do a lot of moutain biking when I'm not in the gym. I really need to concentrate on my dieting since it seems like from everyone that is so important.

    Does anyone think that I can be doing more for the lifting part of my workout? I really want to cut up and become more defined and I'm wondering if my weight portion is enough?

    I worked out last night, biked about 8 miles (to and from gym) and did weights but I really don't feel like the weights was enough. Any thoughts would be great.

    Well you might want to look into these routines here...as you will see they suggest lower volume to promote your body to hold onto any muscle mass you have as you lower fat.

    Hope that helps, and this journal is a big step in the right direction as far as reaching your own goals.

    Today I got to the gym and saw that a yoga class was starting. I have had 3 times in the past 5 years that I have caused my back to spasm and many of my trainers and friends suggested doing yoga to help me stretch more. Gave it a try and it was pretty good beyond the inner being stuff and such.

    Then did Day 2 of my lifting routine. I think that I need to up the amount of lifting or sets because I feel like I did something but the next day don't seem to be feeling it or hurting as bad when I was doing a much more vigerous routine.

    Well, adding more exercises and sets is always great when you enjoy lifting, but at the same time you need to realize overtraining will cut your legs out from under you as far as growing goes and strength.

    So you think with the amount of cardio training that I should not be going crazy in the gym? So would one say that the lifting routine I have is the right balance even though its not that strenuous?

    Thanks.

    This past weekend I was in a mountain bike race. Got some great miles in for my cardio but no lifting since Thursday. Today I biked about 10 miles doing sprints up and down the bridge for an hour. I then went to the gym for 30 minutes before they closed. Tomorrow do a moderate bike workout and do more weights.
