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?

    I've just realised...

    That in 6 weeks of training properly, I've nearly doubled my bench press, nearly tripled my deadlift and I'm not far off doubling my squat (from the start of week 1 - end of week 6). How long do you guys think that I could expect to keep getting these gains?

    I'm 18, 5'10 and 205lbs atm if that helps at all.
    BP: 247x1
    SQ: 330x5
    DL 297x1
    Total: 874lbs raw

    205lbs @ 5'11, age 18.

    Everyone hits a slump sometime and will need to move on to something else, but if your just a noob to lifting probably 6 months or so before gains start to slow down. As long as your progressing just keep at it and lift hard.

    Not to be a downer, but not very long. It will catch up and the gains will start to slow, but they won't become impossible by any means. You still have many more years of big PRs ahead, just don't expect to double it every 6 weeks lol.
