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?

    wat do you think the benefit of a "good sweat" is?

    You risk exhaustion, dehydration.

    If you are trying to make a weigh-in for a competition, then I can see the point, but for general physical preparedness, its not advisable at all.

    Sweat suits accomplish nothing but getting you dehydrated. It is definitely NOT healthy and is actually very counterproductive to good athletic performances. Stop using it. Even if you are trying to cut weight for a competition or something, there are better ways than this.

    What do you want to accomplish with running? If it's just for general fitness then your better off just running. All a "good sweat" will do is help you lose water weight, which might be good for a competition or weigh in for wrestling. It also might help you look more cut before a day at the beach. But for anything long term you'll just end up more dehydrated.
