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?

    looks like a successful bulk. legs might be trailing a bit, but nothing serious. keep up the hard work.

    You look good for 18, but I'm not sure what to advise without knowing what your routine and diet are like. If you share that with the group, I think we can give you some specifics.

    You look good. We have similar physiques.

    I'd just say keep doing whatever you're doing, its working.

    Ive been working out hard for about 15 months..started from about 165 i think. But I really started bulking hard from New years and so far I've gone from i 187 to 205. My routine would look somewhat like:
    Day 1- Upper Body-
    -3 X 5 reps Bench
    -about 6 other sets for chest (dips, pec dec, whatever)
    -3 X 6 Pull ups for the lats and about another 5 sets working the lats (Bent over rows, whatever else)
    -And another 3 sets for shoulders (Lateral raises)

    Day 2- Lower Body (and sometimes abs)
    -5 or 6 sets of Squats X 7 reps
    -3 sets deadlifts X 6 reps (some weeks I will leave out deadlifts)
    -3 sets Leg Raises and 3 sets Calf raises

    Day 3- Rest

    Sometimes Ill throw in isolation exercises for bis and tris, I try and go for low reps to increase strength too.
    This is pretty vague but kind of an idea of what my routine looks liek right now. I'm trying to get as big as possible.

    Your two-day split has worked to get you where you are now. My recommendation is to move to a 3-day split, include lots of compound exercises (squats, deads, etc.), go heavy, and eat a little more. Your chest and back look good, but I'd say your arms and legs are lagging a little. Get them stronger and your chest/back will benefit as well. But overall, you've done well and I think it's time to change it up a little.

    lift heavy weights with your upper body.

    follow a good routine, train hard, eat right, and the strength will come.

    Please. You definitely look like you weight 200+lbs. Looking good.

    That said -- I'd change up your routine a little. I can't recommend the BGB (Baby Got Back) routine enough.

    Wow, I can already see that your abs are HUGE. If you drop a few more pounds those suckers will look really really nice.
