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?

    Maillol - Skinny and building on a budget.

    New here so first off hello!

    I'm 26, 5'10 and I have a very slight frame, I currently weigh about 8.5 stone (about 120lbs).

    When I was at uni in Glasgow the uni had a great gym i could use basically for free. Back then I think I got up to 10 stone. Anyway now I can't afford a gym but I just bought a standard barbell and 57kgs of weights off ebay for £20.

    Someone once described Arnie as looking like a condom stuffed with walnuts. I'm not really into in that look I just want to be bigger in general. So here is my plan. I'm just going to do deadlifts and overhead presses. Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 3 sets of 5 reps at the moment. Back when I was lifting in Glasgow I'm sure I didn't really gain any decent mass until i started doing deadlifts. If i had a bench i probably would do bench presses too but for now i don't.

    Food-wise At the moment I'm aiming for 2500 calories a day. Any cheap high calorie food tips welcome.

    So I've started this week. Deadlifting 20kg plus the bar which i'm guessing is about 5kg.

    What do you think?
