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?

    El Bastardo Flaco


    I'm starting a training log. I have been lifting for about 7 months. I started at 160lbs, and used HCT-12 as my first program. At 4400 calories a day I reached 192lbs after about 5 1/2 months, and cut down to about 175.

    My goal is predominantly hypertrophy, realizing that increases in strength are my indicator that I am on the right track.

    I have wide hips and decent legs, for my frame, and abdominals showing even when I was above 15% body fat. My weakness is upper body (shoulders, chest, and triceps) and everything else.

    I have terrific eating abilities, so that I can easily eat clean calories till a level higher than my genetics will probably ever need. I never miss my calorie or protein targets. I sleep a minimum of 7 1/2 hours a night, shooting for 8, and take an hour nap after lunch.

    My supplements are:
    NOW Adam Multivitamin x 1
    Member's Mark Fish Oil (900mg EFA's per capsule) x 3
    Member's Mark Vitamin C 500mg x 2
    Micronized Creatine (Whatever big brand is cheapest) 5g x 1
    NOW Beta Alanine 3g x 1
    5lbs EAS Whey / 2lbs Higher Power Micellar Casein Blend (2 scoops = 48g Protein PWO)
    NOW Maltodextrin (72g Carb PWO)
    Gatorade Powder (32g Carb Pre/During WO)

    Age - 27
    Height - 6'2"
    Weight - 177lbs
    Body Fat - Maybe 10-11% (don't know ; don't care)
    Frame - Small to Medium
    Calories - 3200/day avg. (Will probably need to bump up much higher)

    Thanks for any advice,
