The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    About to get serious for first time in 3 years

    I am about to get serious about my health again for the first time in about 3 years. I was working out pretty religiously the first two years of college but then fell victim to a long term girlfriend! When I stopped working out, I was about 6' 2" 175 and fairly cut up. I am currently 23 years old 6'2" 200+/-lbs and unfortunately none of the extra weight is muscle. I am looking to start a cut, but am still not sure which one to go with. My goal is to be down to 180 by 5/1/08. Any suggestions on which diet to follow would be appreciated.

    The attached photos reflect about a month and a half of being back in the gym-weights only. Sorry, I have no idea how to pose for them. I am going to lift 3-4 times a week and do the Big 3 at least once a week. I also am looking into going to a boxing gym for an additional 2 workouts a week just for fun. Any areas I need to focus on from the pics, please point them out and dont hold back.

    Additionally, I am going to be supplementing with the following:

    -Mega Men Sport Multi-Vitamin
    -Tonalin CLA (going to finish the bottle i have and stop-havent seen any results)
    -Fish Oil (5 capsules daily with 900mg EPA & 600mg DHA)
    -Black Powder (I know a lot of ppl dont like this supplement but i have seen improvements in my workouts)
    -Protein (Currently not supplementing protein please recommend a brand)

    Any suggestions/recommendations are appreciated and I am going to try and track my progress on here.

    Thanks,

    Collin

    I have those exact same shorts.

    You're not really that out of shape or anything, there's no rush to lose a bunch of weight in a hurry.

    I should correct myself, I am not concerned about my weight at all I want to increase my size and cut my BF. If anyone can estimate my current BF% then I think I will revise my goal and try to cut it by x% by May.

    I'm not terribly good at this. Based on other estimates I've seen on WBB, maybe 14-16%?

    17% maybe? there's no way you're 20.
