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?

    I'm really curious if this is normal progress or not. I am new to lifting. I started in November and never hit the gym prior to that....

    for a newbie yes
    I believe that when the body is strong, the mind thinks strong thoughts. Time spent away from the Iron makes my mind degenerate. I wallow in a thick depression. My body shuts down my mind.

    For a newbie, it is typical to see really fast gains immediately. When I started working out, I put on 15 lbs in 2 months -- and i had a horrible diet, was drinking a lot, and sleeping... not so much (I was a college freshman, what do you expect? ).

    After those initial newbie gains, it will become harder to put on muscle. You'll need to focus on your diet (basically eat 3,500 to 5,000 calories a day -- preferably healthy) and train smarter.
