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?

    135 lbs. to 150 lbs. w/o too much fat in 5 months -- can it be done?

    I'm currently 5'-8", 135 lbs, 17 years old. In 5 months, working out 3-4 days a week and eating right, do you think it's possible to get to 150 lbs.?

    If not, what is a realistic goal?

    p.s. I'm not planning on using creatine

    I sure do...It all depends on if you use supplements are not and what you calorie intake is everyday and every week. Another thing is your BF% for the fat that you already have.

    I have gained 16lbs since Jan. 5th,2002 and it is now March 4th. I plan on gaining another 5-10 lbs. before the end of this month. Now that is a task at hand.

    Simply... it can be done.

    Maybe, but expect to gain some fat and be prepared to eat a lot

    I gained 10 pounds in 4 months, and very little fat, and I have a really hard time gaining weight, so 20 pounds in 5 months seems reasonable if you can eat eat eat
    I lift weights

    That's realistic. Depends on your definition of "too much fat", though....expect to gain muscle to fat in about a 3:1 ratio if doing everything right, if your just gonna bulk like a pig then 2:1 is about what you'll get.

    Use creatine, it'll only help.

    I agree I would use creatine, actually I do.

    Question: Why don't you want to use creatine?

    hell yea! last year, i put on 20 lbs in 2 months by eating as much protein, carbs, and good ole nutrional fat and then going to the gym and absolutely tearin it up. i concentrated on heavy compound movements for now more than 8 reps sometimes no more than 5. i worked each bodypart once a week. shakes like myoplex help if ya have them as snacks along with regular meals. i also drank as much milk and water as i could hold. it damn worked well and ive been building ever since then but ive slowed down because im short and im cutting up now cause i dont wanna look too ridiculous

    well, it's pretty possible to gain 15lbs in 5 months and stay th same bodyfat, cuz i went from 125-145 (<10%bf) in less than one year, and two of those months i didn't lift

    My reason for not wanting to use creatine is that I heard it causes acne, and I already have moderate acne, so I don't want to make it any worse.

    any more stories/info would be appreciated, thanks everyone

    There is no correlation between creatine and acne. And your goals are totally possible. I've gained 70 pounds in 19 months. Not to mention my bodyfat stayed the same.

    makes sense.


    hey man if u think creatine causes acne, u need to start doing some havy research. creatine is a safe amino acid that does not cause health problems. start doing research if u want to get biggertuttut

    tony touch, I've done a lot of research but I've never "put it to use"

    I've heard it both ways as well, so that's why I asked.

    Creatine and acne have no relation. Well they might in some odd meaningless sort of way, but no creatine does not cause acne.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
