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?

    Pic's after 3 years of training, 16 years old

    Hey guys. I've been lifting since the beginning of eighth grade, and im now a junior in high school. I have taken occasional long periods of time off from lifting in these 3 years, but i really like to think i've made some pretty darn good progress, after all, im only 16. Other important information is : I am 6 feet, 2 inches tall. My 1 rep max bench press is 315. I weigh around 210. Before i started lifting, i was 5 feet, 8 inches, and i wieghed about 120-130, and i benched around 120. So any input on my progression guys? In my opinion, i believe i need to work on my legs, biceps, and middle back. I believe my strong points are my lats, triceps, and shoulders. I know i didnt pose all of the muscles but i posted what i could. Thanks Heres some pics:

    Focus on squats and deadlifts as much as you do your bench and I guarantee you your goals will come a bit faster.

    And you wanna trim down more? You are pretty damn lean IMO

    Good base though! Keep it up
