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?

    * muscle mass/ strength gain *help*

    17 years old. 138 pounds. and I'm 5' 8". I'm very athletic and I play hockey. I have a great workout schedule.

    My goal for next month, (June) is to be 140 pounds.

    Then, the next month (July), 145 pounds.. and

    By the end of August I hope to be at 150 pounds..

    I drink a lot a lot of water everyday, and gatorade when i dont drink water.. I take Glutamine Powder, Protein Shakes, Multivitamins. I'm about to start NaNO Vapor next month, as well..and I eat good

    Any tips or information someone could give me to accomplish these goals?

    Thank you!

    Eat alot of real food. Lots of it. Lift heavy things repeatedly. Heavy things.

    12lbs in 3 months is very doable, good luck, have fun - and if you fail, you have to eat 12lbs of fried chicken :-D

    Save your money and spend it on real food.

    No need to buy Nano Vapor...just eat a lot.
    Like, a lot. And lift heavy.
    If youre not getting enough protein from your food intake, supplement with a whey shake, or Nitrean is awesome.

    Just remember, eat a lot. And drink milk. Lose the gatorade..

    As for lifting, follow something like Starting Strength, with heavy, heavy compound lifts. Ive gained 10 lbs in 4 weeks doing this:

    Dead Lift/Squat: One Day a week
    Bench Press/Dumbbell Shoulder Press/Pullup Twice a week

    and eating a lot.

    Good luck.
    Did I mention eat a lot?
