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?

    Achieving a look (time scale)

    I was looking at the following article:
    http://jcdfitness.com/2009/03/what-i...at-percentage/

    Starting at around 170-175lb and 15-18%BF
    how long would it take to achieve the first photo(photo to right)(190lbs, 15% BF)

    How long then to achieve the next 2 photos
    let say at 190-196lbs at 12-13%BF and 10% BF?

    that's a really hard question to answer - why are you so concerned with the time frame? Why not just focus on doing the right things (getting strong, following a solid diet according to your goals) and let your genetics and time do the rest??

    Any bodybuilder knows that it takes years to achieve that kind of gain.

    That is a huge range. 170@ 18% is very different from 175@15%

    That aside. It depends on genetics. How dedicated the person is. Natural, etc. OR is right, years.

    What has your diet been like? How long have you been training consistantly? the answers to those two questions and genetics will determine the time, also if your going to use the sauce or not. If you have not been training consistantly and eating clean consistantly then it could take 2-4 years depending on genetics, if you use the sauce 1-2 years, if you have been training consistantly even longer to both of those guesstimates. post your training regimen, diet, background info and we will be able to help you further.

    Can we refer to the sauce as the "SAAAAAUUUUUUCEEEEEEEEE"? (I might post a video explaining this pronounciation)

    Do you train now? In other words, are those numbers untrained baselines?

    The fact that you feel compelled to ask how long it will take means you likely don't have the dedication required to do it. You may want to not bother.

    If you had trained consistently since your join date I have no doubt that you would have attained a physique similar to that picture.
