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?

    I seem to not be gaining any more muscle mass or strength?

    Hi all, now this may not seem like much to all you machines out there but I am relatively new to this (started properly with real weights maybe 3 or 4 months ago).

    I am currently lifting 9kgs per arm and that is the weight i am using for all of my exercises.
    The problem is that after these 3 or so months I have arms no bigger than the chick on the main page! While that is certainly no bad thing I would like to go up a bit in my lats but I have seen no improvement in them either. I think I may be doing something wrong.

    I do around 15 slow reps of lateral raises and 25-30 hammer curls and bicep curls all on 9kgs (which is until i can't do any more) and I do say 3 sets of each a night (plus other exercises) but I don't seem to be improving since my initial first month or so say. I can definitely see the results since i started but I am still a bit away from my ideal build.

    One thing I have noticed is that I don't get "the burn" when doing my lats, it just becomes impossible to lift any more, so do you think that I may be lifting to much in my lat raises maybe? could that be why there is no real improvement?
    Or maybe I need supplements? I have steered away from them in the past mainly because I am afraid of putting on weight

    Help'd be appreciated guys and gals
