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?

    hey everyone . im three months into my power / strength based routine , and the only question i keep asking myself is .....why didnt i start this 8 years ago when i was 20 and better looking ? im hoping if i keep this journal , i can stay more focused and get some critiques / feedback .

    sunday - upper body

    flat bench press :
    175 pounds - 5 reps
    190 pounds - 5 reps
    205 pounds - 3 reps
    220 pounds - 3 reps
    235 pounds - 1 reps
    250 pounds - 1 reps = p.r.

    neutral grip ( palms in ) flat dumbbell bench press :
    45's - 20 reps
    65's - 20 reps

    does cardio slow down size? I've been running 5 days a week while i lift and while for all intents and purposes i've only been lifting for 2 months my size has doubled in certain departments. I would imagine the running would lean you out and your size would be more related to muscle volume instead of water volume, just speculation, but I say do what the wrath says, don't worry about number, worry about the mirror and symmetry, if you do it right size will come. sorry i have to go im procrastinating i must study for my thermo final. ciao.
    My journal
    Goal(Current):
    400(335) Bench Press
    600(520x3 2xBW) Dead Lift
    500(495x1) ATG Squat
    Total: 1500(1350)
    365 Front Squat
    consistency and intensity.

    i guess it depends on the person . i was deployed to afghanistan for 16 months and because of the job i was doing , i was able to lift hard , eat hard , and did virtually no cardio . i gained 36 pounds over the course of that 16 months . i have been back from deployment almost 6 months , and in that time i have gained only 7 pounds . i still lift hard and eat hard , but in that six months time frame , my cardio / military exercises are done 4 - 5 days a week . i cant speak for everyone else , but yes , cardio does effect me in the growth department .
