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?

    Powerlifting and fat control

    Okay a little strange to a lot of powerlifters, but what is the best way of keeping bodyfat down. I used to do lots of cycling when I was training a few years ago, but the endurance work had a poor affect with my squats which were my favourite lift. A bodybuilding diet doesn't seem on the surface to hit the mark, so what tips has anyone got?

    Eat less if you are gaining fat. It sounds simple and it can be. When you eat chicken and spinach the body doesnt know if you are a powerlifter or a bodybuilder, so food will have the same effect on your body either way.

    Why is keeping the bodyfat down something strange to most powerlifters? Back in the day there may not have been as much concern with mobility and health levels, but lately there has been a much more noticable push towards keeping bf at a more controlled level. Take Dave Tate as an example. He has leaned out to a low bodyfat and has greatly increased his mobility since working with Cosgrove.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    If you got fat, you ate too much. Aerobics will help a little, but realistically it burns, what, maybe 300 calories?
