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?

    Your not that light so the answer is a nice solid clean bulk. Don't eat everything in sight just add some more eggs.meat,cheese and vegetables to your diet. All the things you should be eating,just add 10-20% more off them. Your not 150lbs you dont need to eat 5 cheeseburgers and a milkshake everyday! LOL

    It depends on what you are going for....are you going for looks? Strength? A mix of both? If purely looks, then are you looking to become lean and muscular looking (like a stereotypical 'surfer' in movies or whatever) or are you trying to get JACKED?

    All this depends. A pic is needed though to help determine on what course to take.

    Personally, I'm 5'10 - 5'11, and I'm at 180 lbs. I'm 100% satisfied with my size. I have no desire to be big and jacked....I'm lean, cut, and pretty strong for my size (and always looking to get stronger). But I built my physique from training for 5 solid years, the first 2 1/2 were from a dirty bulk up to 220, and one single cut down to 180....now I just maintain my weight and try to get stronger!

    To be honest i'm going more for looks/health and a little bit of strength. I already am quite strong, and my goal isn't to be able to bench 350+ lbs on the bench or squat over 500lbs. If i had a choice between being 175-180 at 8% percent bodyfat and 210 and 15% able to put up those numbers I'd choose the first.

    Ok, now that you stated your goals, you should still post a pic so that we can help point you in the right direction.
