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?

    Gaining weight to fast?

    4 weeks ago i was 193lbs. Today i am 200lbs. I have trying to bulk up i am eating 3,000cals a day along with 2 Pro shakes (Nitrean+) Results (after work out and on days off), and BCAA+ (2scoops) during my work out. I look and I don't know where they weight is going to. I asked my wife if it was just me becuase i look the best i ever have and I feel great. She said I don't look like my old 200lbs when i didn't work out. So over 4 weeks i put on 7lbs is this normal?


    Food I eat:
    Fish
    Tons of grilled or baked Chicken
    Salads
    Vegs
    Lean Red Meat
    Eggs/ Egg whites
    whole grain bread
    peanut butter (alot)
    Just to give you all Idea.

    I did the same and put on fat, strength went up so I'm fine with it.
    Squat briefs only 625 @ 210
    Bench geared 525 @ 210
    Deadlift geared 650 @ 220

    First, it's only 7 lbs, get over it. Then, it's likely you have put on some muscle with that weight. Lastly, don't be a slave to the scale, trust the mirror and your wife.

    You gained just over 1.5lbs a week. That's a good healthy rate.

    Weight is easy to put on for me but hard to get off. Went from 190 to 230 in just a few months but my body fat went up to 25%. Ugh its hell trying to get it back down under 15.
