The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Right now I am 230. but i did compete at 190's. My diet flucuates as it gets closer to the show, but I was taking in 40g of protein every 2 hours, and approx 30g of carbs every 2 hours for most of it. then i get to carb depletion and carb loading.

    I ate A LOT of 93% lean hamburg, fish and chx and steaks, with white rice, potatoes and green veggies.

    What did your end day macros work out to be? And what are they like now in the offseason?

    The last days were very hard to track, i will have to look at home and figure them up!

    Right now I am intaking about 450g protien and the equivelent in carbs, and not really monitoring my fat intake. My fats are coming from egg yolks, almonds, ev olive oil, nat peanut butter. I do estimate that I am consuming about 4,000 to 4,500 calories per day, as i eat every 2 hours starting at 8am till 10pm.

    I could elaborate on why, but I'll just leave it at I love your style with regard to offseason diet. And can much relate.

    I've been playing with reverse grip bench more as of late. I do them on a Flat BB, but they are definitely a good exercise for the upper chest, very unique to say the least.

    Do you notice much of a difference between doing them at an incline rather than flat?

    I havent moved into doing them on flat yet. Its an exercise that I just incorporated into my program. I figured that if flat reverse grip really hits uppper, then what would incline reverse do.

    Rather than work towards a definitive end day set of macros, you treat each meal for what it is and make it quality. Set macros that should not be deviated from are not critical when gaining. Additionally the high protein. I worked with a pro who would allow me no more than 240g a day dieting. that made sense because I needed those calories as signifigant cho intake was important for my workload amongst other reasons. But he also advised me to only jack up carbs once I started gaining and I didn't need more protein. He may be right that on paper my body may not utilize more protein but over the years, for whatever reason, I still gain better with a very high protein intake -- like yours.

    Now, that's more information than you cared to hear. Hence why I simply left it at what I said.

    lol, that was good! haha. Really, you worked with a pro that only set at 240g of protein? hmmm, that doesnt sound right to me! I know that i have heard that Jay Cutler consumes approx 600g a day. But in the game of nutrition, i know that certian bodies react different to certian ratios ect. I know that the higher protein for me is working very very well as I have never been this high before!
    Do you compete?

    ugh, training has been a struggle! a lot going on right now with life! My wife and i just renewed our vows and are looking to move into a bigger house, plus trying to plan a vacation to see my family in Maine. So, needless to say, training has been minimal! I am going to take the rest of this week off. Has some minor aches and pains pop up as well, so with the rest of this week off, should be able to get back into the full swing next week... hopefully! I only have a little over 10 months before the North Americans in Ohio!!! Got to get on it and make it happen!

    Take this whole fall/winter off dude, give some of us a little hope in trying to catch up, lol.

    Seriously though, wish you all the best - good luck preparing for and leading into next year's comp.
