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?

    How I gained some LBS quickly.

    I have always had high metabolism so it has always been a little tougher for me to gain weight. That and I am 6'5" and have been skinny my whole life. My freshman year in college I was only 175 pounds. Now a few years later I PR'ed my weight today at 224 pounds.

    Anyway, I decided to bulk after my GF made subtle hits that I looked like I had lost some muscle. I most likely did because my bench and some other lifts declined a bit. So I outlined a plan for myself and it is as follows.

    *Caution this is definitely *NOT* clean eating and it is just to get the most calories in my system for the cheapest price*

    8:00 AM - wake up: 16 OZ milk + 1 scoop nitrean (400 cal/40G protein)
    9:30 AM - Breakfast: 2 BE&C biscuits from MCD's (844 cal/30g Protein)
    11:30 AM: 16 OZ milk + 1 scoop nitrean (400 cal/40G protein)
    1:30PM: 3 dollar menu sandwiches Wendys(1080 cal/45g protein)
    3:30PM: PB&J sandwich(500 cal/30g protein)
    6:30PM before gym: maybe a scoop or two of peanut butter (200 cals/? protein)
    9:00PM: 16 OZ milk + 1 scoop nitrean (400 cal/40G protein)
    10:30PM: 2 pieces of chicken and some pasta (500 calories/46g protein)

    Total is between 4300-4500 calories and between 250-260g protein

    I started this a little over a week ago and I went from 219 pounds to 224 pounds. Granted I would imagine some of that is water weight/fat weight but I literally did not gain or lose one pound in 8 months before this so its nice seeing the scale actually move.

    Its a relatively cheap bulk and I will do it until I can maintain a steady 230 pounds thats not water weight...then take a month or two off and then do it again to 240.

    Also, Nitrean tastes AMAZING with milk.

    I am going to move this to diet/nutrition, but keep the discussion going.

    Sounds like you did well in the eating department dude. Gaining weight certainly can be a full time job for some of us. Keep it up man

    Thanks man. You said it...definitely a job. People are probably like "well I wish I could want to gain weight instead of losing it". I think both are equally difficult to do. Id rather have to lose weight because at least my wallet would be a bit fatter.
