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?

    Gain on Bench

    I made a modest gain, but a gain never the less, of 10 pounds for my 6RM on flat bench this month.

    Congratulations. You'd be surprised (or not) how many people don't make gains year on year, so don't downplay a 10lb increase on the bench in a month.

    I look at in the context of 'rate of change' (sorry for the calculus reference) A consistent rate of change of 10 lbs a month would mean an improvement of 120 lb in a year. Which I doubt anyone could achieve without some help from drugs. So yeah, I'll take 10 lbs any day.

    i would have to say 120 lbs is not out of reach at all. I have put on 75 lbs since jan. went on a cal deficit july through mid sept. So i would say that if a persons diet was right and training was consistant it would happen.

    hahaha, When you start at 0 you have nowhere to go but up...lol. Truthfully yours is more impressive. I think the higher up you go in weight the harder it is to make big gains. I started at 90 lbs...arms shaking...wondering if my elbows were gonna break and thinking this is it i'm gonna crush my wind pipe. lol.
    so really i'm just getting my chest caught up to the rest of me....these damn monkey arms don't help any.
