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?

    Weight Loss & Muscle Building Routine ????

    Hello all,

    I would like some advise about what I should be doing during my work out

    Right now I would like to concentrate on weight loss ( about 50lbs fat ) & gain muscles mainly arms & better looking chest. I am NOT looking at being some genetic looking freak

    ( not that's there any thing wrong with that )

    Right now my trainer has me doing this workout 3 days a week

    All exercises are 3 sets of 20 reps

    * Ab machine 60lbs
    * cardio 5 mins
    * shoulder 80lbs
    * bench press 70lbs
    * Dead man lift 5lbs
    * squats 5lbs

    ( Please keep in mind that I have really BAD knees so the last 2 are only 3 sets of 10 )

    On my "off days" I do cardio for 45 mins to 1 hour

    I am currently taking protein & creatine & I am also following a nutritional food plan that allows me roughly 1,500 calories a day

    Is this the right routine for me. My trainer said it will take me about 1 year to lose this fat & that sounds like a LONG time. I realize I didn't put this weight on over night but a year ?????

    Is there a better way or a faster routine or should I shut up & be patient ?

    Maybe I should mention that I have added bicep muscle exercises on my own that I do each day.
