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?

    The answer to these sorts of questions depends on your ultimate goal, which is why someone asked. If your goal is to get as big and strong as possible, then don't worry about cutting right now. If you just want a very lean appearance, then you might trying losing a bit of fat. To me, very few people look "big" at 200 lbs. or less unless they are very short, but that's just me.

    Don't worry about % numbers too much. Especially since most of us don't have access to an underwater weighing tank or DEXA machine to get truly accurate measurements. You have decide how much fat you are willing to carry (based on how you look and feel) and don't worry about what anyone else says. Personally I think these huge swings most gusy take between bulking and cutting end up being mostly counterproductive. I prefer much more subtle changes. Honestly I don't see much sense in trying to cut a bunch of weight if you don't have much muscle left over when you are done. I've found that if I gained some weight and then immediately tried to cut, I wouldn't hold any of the new muscle I had gained. If I went up to a new weight and held it there for a good period of time, I would hold onto it if I dropped a bit of fat (but not more than ~10 lbs. of weight loss).
    Ultimately you will have to make the decision based on how much muscle you want to build and how much fat you are comfortable carrying.

    Don't compare us to other forums. We tend to be a little more mature and respectful around here. The immature and disrespectful don't last long.

    To answer your question, I think you'll get different answers from different people. Their answers will reflect their own goals and desires. If somebody values size over condition or condition over size, it will sway their opinion. The only opinion that should matter at this point is YOURS. You have to be happy with your progress and strive for your own individual goals.
