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?

    Prepping for SS and GOMAD questions...

    I realized after a couple years of trying to gain weight and muscle, that I was only hurting myself because I was doing everything wrong. After finding this site, you guys have taught me a lot. I cannot thank everyone enough. Some words of encouragement or opinions are greatly appreciated.

    158 lbs -162 lbs depending on the week.

    First thing, You don't want a smith machine, make sure it's a power rack. And you don't have to drink a gallon of milk a day to get bigger. That may give you some problems depending how you handle milk. If you are eating enough quality calories you will put on quality muscle. The milk just makes it easier to add in those extra calories. Good luck!

    Okay great, I'll look into the power racks. I will start at 1/4 gallon a day and adjust as my body adjusts. I very well may find that I am getting the gains I want way before I hit the 1 gallon mark. My body reacts well to proper diet and weight training.

    Don't start bulking until you start lifting weights that are challenging.

    Yeah definitely get a power rack, stay away from smith machines. Just lift heavy, dont worry so much about the milk, but rather your total protein intake.

    You'll probably need more than 300lbs of weight for the squats and deads.
