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?

    any progress? or should i keep cutting...

    I got some crappy before and after pics.. the before ones were done with a cell phone so cut me a break

    and people have commented on me losing weight, and the only thing i have lost strength on is my bench, just slightly though. My squat and deads have actually gone up on the cut. They levelled out now though.. anyway. here they are....

    I know the back one isnt very good but i had to hurry because i have to leave for work in 3 minutes.. lol

    Why the cut? How much do you weigh now?

    Chest seems to be lagging the most.

    It's hard to tell because the lighting is different on both. Try the pics with the same lighting for future poses.

    I'd say work on bulking up the chest and shoulders a little more, so you have the T frame.

    I would do a clean bulk... then cut to rid the excess BF.

    You can carry a lot more weight on your frame. Bulk for a couple years, not months. Concentrate on building a solid foundation - think heavy, compound movements, lots of food, lots of rest. At the moment, you aren't carrying that much size. Don't worry about abs... worry about making serious strength and size gains.

    well I got a really good program that im on (NROL).. and I'm in the 2nd hypertrophy routine.. the first strength routine is coming up next. So i will up my calories to around 3000 and see what happens.

    For the past couple of months i've been keeping it under 2400

    You're leaning out nice and slow - good job, you're keeping your size. Now, that being said, you're not carrying as much muscle as you want, we all know that, and you've got plenty of room to grow. You're going to fill in, and the way I see it, you've got two options.

    1. throw caution to the wind and bulk and lift like a madman. Enjoy the strength gains, enjoy the food and say goodbye to any hint of summertime abs.

    2. Take a slow approach to this next phase. Eat at maintenance (or just slightly above), do a few heavy, low-rep workouts a week and a few more so-called "metabolic" workouts - complexes, hill repeats, interval work - and harden yourself up for summer. Take approach #1 in the fall.
