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 train legs on Tuesday and hit the bike easy on Wednesday and Thursday to keep from getting to sore. I sit down at work alot in the winter and get really stiff but the biking has helped. I don't go mental and hit it hard for a cardio workout.
    ...it's more friendly for trainers to say, "yeah, we can help you tone up!" rather than saying, "yeah, we can help you get rid of that fat ass!"

    It depends :)

    For me, I can ride the bike at low resistance without any lactic acid buildup or feeling, the stair thingy, on the other hand, fatigues my quads.

    If you're doing truly aerobic, low resistance, cardio then I think there's no harm done.

    You can judge by the pain. If you feel it more in your legs then your lungs, you need to lower the resistance.

    Light activity will actually help speed recovery. I'd say some light/moderate biking would be fine.
