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?

    Diet, exercise and testosterone (a study)

    http://jap.physiology.org/cgi/content/full/82/1/49


    A few excerpts:

    The fact that the absolute resistance exercise-induced increases in T and C concentrations were not significantly correlated with any nutritional variables indicates that other mechanisms are responsible for the acute hormonal responses to exercise stress. The significant increase in T after both the bench press and jump squat exercise protocols confirms that high-intensity resistance exercise results in elevated concentrations of T (5, 8, 18, 19, 29). The fact that T was increased by ~15% after the jump squat exercise compared with ~7% after the bench press exercise was most likely due to the greater muscle mass used in the jump squat (16, 20).
    Big compounds: More testosterone?

    Results showed a reduced resting and postexercise increase in T concentrations in athletes consuming protein derived mainly from vegetable sources compared with a diet with protein derived mainly from animal sources.
    Maybe it's the zinc from meat?

    These data are consistent with the findings of several other investigations that have reported a decrease in T in individuals consuming a diet containing ~20% fat compared with a diet containing ~40% fat
    Our results showed a nonsignificant correlation between PUFA and T and a significant negative correlation between the PUFA/SFA ratio and T.
    Too much PUFA is bad, but it doesn't tell about omega 3/6 ratios.

    I like how the found veggie protein to be inferior at boosting test. You don't win friends (or get laid) eating salad.
    That's a picture of Scarlett Johansson.

    This is referencing another study. Here are a couple of other relevant quotes from it:

    Quote Originally Posted by Serum sex hormones and endurance performance after a lacto-ovo vegetarian and a mixed diet
    Serum free testosterone, however, did not differ significantly during the 6 wk dietary intervention periods and neither did serum concentrations of sex hormone binding globulin, dihydrotestosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate, 4-androstenedione, estrone, estradiol, estrone sulphate, or gonadotropins.
    Quote Originally Posted by Serum sex hormones and endurance performance after a lacto-ovo vegetarian and a mixed diet
    In conclusion, 6 wk on a lacto-ovo vegetarian diet caused a minor decrease in total testosterone and no significant changes in physical performance in male endurance athletes compared with 6 wk on a mixed, meatrich diet.
