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?

    Progress photos 8/4/11

    Bummer I didn't take photos when I started out 5 weeks ago, but here is just me posin around like a noob.
    Current Stats:

    Age 22
    Height: 5'9" (with hair flat lol)

    I need to work on my lats more, as well as my posterior deltoid. Stomach can always use some work. Might consider a bulk period in the winter to up the quads.

    Well to clarify, I don't really think this is a bulk because I haven't been exceeding too much over maintenance...when winter rolls around, papa bear is gonna start the bulking process. However, I have been upping my caloric intake since I started this Hypertrophy program (see journal) and cutting things like sugar and bad fats...so I GUESS you could call this a cut.

    But I view a cut as a weight cut as opposed to a fat cut...idk. My lack of documentation really shows here as I basically 1. Ate clean 2. Ate often 3. Consumed BW in g of protein 4. Moved heavy shit 5. repeat.

    This was coming from a 5 month hiatus from working out, so this is 5 weeks in after not working out for 5 months. I really wish I had a camera to document then, but I was lookin soft.
