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?

    In Need of a Relatively Fast Routine

    Hey guys,

    New account. For the life of me I couldn't seem to recover my original account. Anyways, on to the question at hand!

    I need to put on some muscle in the next month for a convention that I'll be attending where the outfit I'll be wearing would require a bit more muscle mass than I currently possess.

    I primarily need to put on some size on my arms and shoulders. My chest, back, and stomach all seem to be doing alright for the time being.

    Now here's the catch! I need to be able to do as much as I can with relatively little if any access to a gym or weights. I can use the great outdoors, a pull-up bar, and a set of 10 or 15 pound dumbbells.

    I also encounter the most difficulty with putting on size on my arms. I was wondering if any of you guys might be able to help me out with this pickle I find myself in.

    Thanks!

    I don't have much in the way of a quick program (working on putting one together myself!), but be sure that whatever you end up doing includes lots of pull-ups, chin-ups, and variations on those movements. They'll do a fair bit for arm development, without neglecting your back. If you can find a way to tie them to you, the dumbells would be great for adding resistance once you have bodyweight chins mastered.

    Along the same lines, you could also look into different push-up variations to work on your shoulders and tris.

    You have a month and NO equipment...good luck

    At least focus on doing chin-ups and bar dips between two solid chairs.

    Haha, yeah. I know I'll likely not have too much luck but work with what I got, right?

    Your best bet is going to be to get some padded clothing or somethign underneath to help you out.
