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?

    regret? definitely not.. it was pretty far from a dreamer bulk. i'm pretty sure i burned off a lot of muscle dieting so aggressively in 2010. it led to the path i am currently on.. there was, however, definitely room for improvement. pm me

    Dream bulk was poor word choice and implies little muscle gain. Sorry bout dat. Shoulda been "heavy" bulk or long bulk.

    yar. composition pre and post bulk at comparable body weights was massively different.. i definitely let things slide though, i became obsessed with hitting the strength rep goals each week despite excess weight gain. oh well

    I feel you Tim. My progress has been terrible as of late, it's pretty been bad as a whole the past 2 months!

    Oh well, I'll keep re-evaluating and buckle down.

    Where are you with the calories? I'd say your progress looks very solid actually, I wouldn't make a change for a few more days with regards to the diet that is.

    Abs look solid and shows that you aren't holding much fat around the mid section.

    Abs look great. My chest is probably smaller than yours so don't feel so bad.

    scott, right now i'm pegging myself at 2650 and 3100 once per week. i finally put it all into excel on a micro basis. the planned drop is 2315/2915. the thing is i just dont see how i cant be making progress where i am at. i have intense hunger and i'm taking 75mg of ephedrine sulfate per day. EC destroys hunger.. so without that i would probably be bordering on insanity right now. i think i need to be patient.. right now i am REALLY hungry.. this is going to be a really crappy sesh here.

    thanks thomas. apt is actually pretty decent. its a 1200 sq ft 1BR, all hardwood, stainless, contemporary etc. what is really cool is that i have my desktop hooked up to my 60" lcd. porn in 1080! i have a great view of the dumpsters 7 floors down too

    visually.. i just dont know... disappointed... but at the same time arm vascularity is increasing. i think another 4-5 days at this cal level should show big improvement. i just cant imagine i need to dip cals more yet. i snapped a pic... lower body looks good. upper looks disproportionately small. ill take another on sat/sun for compare and post if there is a diff

    ..... ya.

Awh im ranting it just pissed me off so bad when i saw that comment, i could beat the piss out of him if he had been here lol fuking idots oh yeah i think your looking jacked dude looks overall good semitentry ignor my spelling its sucks that why i work on oil rigs lol, the quads look increadable dude good job im really trying to pack on some muscle im 5'9" 182 but want to be 200lbs by next summer im 53 i can still take my shirt off im very proud of that but its alittle harder to gain mass im eating my ass off an changing my routine often just went to a whole body work out 3 days a week its working this is my second week im pretty sore. i work 14 on and 14 off its hard not to go to the gym out here there is nothing else to do but work and workout an all my roomates workout so all 4 of us go to the gym after work but im just doing abs and some traps on the other days i think i might be over working especially when im offshore at home i dont go to the gym but 3 days a week my wifes a bar tender if i could cut out the Coronas i'd be more ripped, but im not fixing to put on the bananna hammock jsut want to stay in shape
    anyway just wanted to let you know i dont think there is anything wrong wih the picture you look badass dude good job.

    and what that is, i have no idea. seems like a good guy tho hah. i ordered 20g of 1,3-d. i'm going to try it in the following manner for lifting days only:

    4am 25mg e, 200mg caffeine, 25mg 1,3-d
    8am 25mg e, 200mg caffeine
    12pm "

    wont be using it on non-lifting days.. there is no thermo effect so there really is no point. i hope i dont freak out or rage or something because anxiety is definitely a side of this from what i have found on bb.com

    Looking lean in the photo. I was going to say you could bring that chest up, but can't we all. Good stuff.
