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?

    WBB 1? I'm timid to post on the count of me being such a noob. But you should probably try to get to the a real gym if you can. I'd suggest you read stickies on gaining weight and such, it's helped me.

    This is what your going to do:
    1. Eat a **** ton of food, make sure its clean, make sure you have atleast 150-200 grams of protein. Every meal count out your 50 grams of protein or whatever and then just stuff your face.
    2. When you go to the gym, you are there to punish yourself. The gym is your tool for transformation. You are focused. You do not start convos with your buddies or look at the cute girls. You put heavy weights on the bar and you force out every last painful, teary eyed, veins bulging rep. You imagine your arms are growing and filling the whole gym. You imagine you are god.
    3. Get a split setup. Look around here. There is a ton of info. Write something basic and post it for advice. I suggest Mon/Tue/Thur/Fri. Alternate upper body lower body. Upper body should have heavy bench work or a variation of it. Lower should have heavy squats or deadlifts. Heavy mean less than 6 repetitions. Then you choose exercises for the other bodyparts and do them out 8-12 repetitions. When you stop progressing in any given exercise, you switch it up.

    AND MOST IMPORTANTLY:

    EAT EAT EAT!!!

    fish, chicken, lean red meat, pork..
    oats, vegetables, whole wheat bread/pasta...

    225lb @ 17% bodyfat, currently cutting
    Current lifts while cutting (all raw): bench 275x4, squat 365x8
    Estimated current maxes: 300 bench / 450 dead / 450 squat
    Competition / Gym PRs (from March 08)
    Bench: 325 raw / 385 loose shirt
    Deadlift: 450 raw ADFPF 04/26/08
    Squat: 405 raw

    Bent over BB rows.

    WBB1 routine did wonders for me. The only reason I stopped doing it was to shift to a powerlifting routine called westside.

    Another tip is to learn to love the process.

    Also, for foods make sure to eat a lot of healthy fats. They will help you in reaching your weight goals.
