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?

    I just noticed this question now.

    What exactly is your concern about warming up a little for your HIIT with SS cardio?

    No worries.

    No concern i was just wondering if there would be a bad result if i went straight to the HIIT, but now i think about it i see that SS cardio would actually be better to start with!

    Sorry, when i wrote that question i was in one of my annual 'panic about training and try and fix things that aren't actually broken' phases.

    Thankyou, again!

    I'm a little confused in the beginning of your article you state that cardio can help with muscle growth. Is this all cardio or just certain types? Basically I want to do some cardio that will benefit me in the weight room. I'm not looking to lose weight, just want some cardio that will help me get stronger. I forgot to add with I read the article it sounds like HILL training will do what I'm looking for but not sure. I want to be sure that I know what I'm doing before doing it.

    Food helps you grow. If you eat enough to compensate for a little deficit from cardio, it certainly won't hurt your gains.

    My reasoning from a muscle-gain perspective was along the lines that because it increases capillary density, you'll have better flow of nutrients to, and better removal of waste products FROM working muscles. Increasing lactate clearance means you can work harder, longer - useful on a bulk, don't you think?

    Don't go crazy with the cardio unless you love it, there's no need - although HIIT and or a little SS cardio a few times a week won't hinder your gains.

    Now, there's another way a little well-placed cardio can help your muscles grow: after a carby meal, go for a walk or a moderate cycle for 10-20 minutes - not only does this serve as active recovery, but the moderate intensity contractions can actually help translocate GLUT4 (transporters) to the cells' surface, encouraging the delivery of much-needed glucose into your muscle cells.

    That's right kids - a walk after dinner really IS good for you.

    Phenominal article! Really, really enjoyed it. It's got great real-life application which makes it an interesting read. When I was in school going for my physical education degree, I wish more instruction was related to real life situations. Great job.
