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?

    How can I get a build like Derek Poundstone?

    I know that it is a far shot to be built like him, but what I'm looking for is how to start adding that much mass. I want to start adding the muscle mass, but I'm not so much concerned with definition. I'm 6'1 at 255lbs, 20 years old. Any tips or workouts nutrition advice, etc, given would be extremely helpful, or just linking me to the articles that would lead me out in the right direction would work as well. Thanks.

    At 6'1 255 you're either already a monster or fat.

    If you're a monster, then you're already there. Otherwise, go with Chevys response.

    arlight, thanks guys. i already got the workout in mine, but what about calorie intake? I do have a lot of size on me now anyway, so do I need to have a high or low caloric intake for my diet? I was gonna aim for about 2500-3000.

    you also need an annoying fiancee to record all of your videos. Seriously though, train, eat, anabolics, strongman movements and good genetics will get you there.

    To look like Poundstone you will have to have a high caloric intake. Figure on about 20-22 calories per pound of bodymass. According to an interview he eats around 400 grams of protein, about the same or a little higher in carbs and 100 grams of fat daily.

    Just wanted to add that the odds of you ending up looking like Poundstone is very slim to none, even with a good amount of quality gear and proper training. I'm sure you could look like damn good as a strongman naturally or geared up, but Poundstone is a genetic FREAK like no other, matched only by Ronnie Coleman, Pudz, and Bill Kazmaier.

    That's godlike bro.



    Mortals can't do that shit.

    the idea isn't to look like him to the t, but to go after that type of body. just huge, huge muscle as opposed to being super defined. and i know i can't get that big without good genetics and steroids, but i intent to get as close as i can naturally

    Its good that you know your limitations. You're well ahead of the game in that respect. Eat right to fit your goals, keep training, be consistent, and always try to learn more. You'll go far if you can keep that up (as well as a lot of the other advice guys have been saying on this thread).

    I appreciate it man. And thanks to everyone for the advice, it's much appreciated.

    I also loved how he did that without a suit. Gnarly.

    Train and eat your ass off.
