The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís 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?

    long term goals

    All right I've been at the bbing thing for a year now and I'm finally starting for formulate some long term goals. Let me start out with some stats:

    I'm 42
    5' 7" 145 lbs 14% bf
    31" waist

    in the past year I went from a flabby 142 to 138 at 13% bf the first 3 months and then back up to 145 at 14% bf and I've got some muscle to show for it.

    I'm thinking my ultimate goal is 165lbs at 10% bf. Is this reasonable? I have a pretty small frame and I'm wondering if I'm capable of gaining 20lbs of muscle. My time frame is open but I'm thinking I would like to hit my goal in no more then 3 years. Am I being easy on myself or too hard or what? I'm pretty sure I eat right and I like to change my workout routine at least every two or three months. Any feedback would be appreciated.
    sometimes slowly

    My stats:
    Age - 43
    ht - 5' - 7"
    wt - 152 lbs
    bf% - 10.5%
    pipe dream goal 175 lbs @ 10% bf
    making the switch to power lifting

    At 42 it is a more "uproad" battle.

    I think your goals are very reasonable though!
