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?

    Cutting weight routine

    I have always been into lifting (6th grade football) and I have never really cared about cutting...normally if I wanted to strip the holiday "cheer" I would pick back up the sprinting (HIIT). I am 6'4'' 282 and my BF% is 21. I want it back to 12-14% But as I am getting older I noticed it is hard to shed the fat...
    ...with that being said, I need advice on what to do.
    I am going to a 3 day split, with intense HIIT on 2 off days and hill training very early on leg day (How to do cardio if you MUST).

    Is there a cutting sticky thread or overall article somewhere?

    For all those that have experience is there a routine that works best with cutting? BGB?

    I don't wanna get old tuttut

    Sounds like you have a decent plan...as long as your 3 day split is set up decent. You may want to look into a full body routine while cutting, doing big full body and compound movements will burn more calories. And as always when cutting diet is the main factor.

    I cut with BGB and How to do cardio if you must - that's why I wrote them to work together. On a cut, I keep BGB to the 5x5 and the 3x8, often doing the sets in antagonist pairs (set of back, rest, set of chest, rest ... ) and dropping the volume rather than the weights when I have to choose between the two. Ditch direct arm work if you like, or reduce it to just 2 or 3 short sets of a single exercise.

    This is by no means the only way to cut - but any method you use will likely have much in common with how I set it up: low-rep heavy compounds, very little to no accessory work, emphasis toward HIIT and away from SS cardio as the cut progresses.
