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?

    One year progress

    Hey guys let me know how I did! My body is very lanky so I'm glad I put on as much mass as I did. I basically bulked the whole time (srs) but did I gain too much fat? Thanks guys, appreciate it.

    BEFORE - 150lb







    AFTER 190lb







    I love this sport.

    Awesome progress for only 1 year. That is a good bulk right there. Kept fat gain to a minimum and gained a ton of muscle.

    Thank you very much guys I know I'm not big at all, but, my only real lacking point is my arms. I know mine take longer to grow, but is there anything I can do to make them grow?

    Great bulk man with progress like that I'm sure you got some accusations of steroid use. I know when I from @ 120 to 155-160 everyone was accusing me. Even now when I went from 135 to 185 people asked me. Keep up the hard work.

    Don't be afraid to train them like the curl jockeys who only want big arms, give them a dedicated day if you really want to bring them up. Just don't sacrifice effort elsewhere.

    Sets may or may not be the answer. Work is what needs increased and shouldn't be confused with volume. Work can be increased through more volume or it can be increased through more force/intensity. Ergo maybe more sets will get them growing, maybe more intensity will get them growing, or maybe both.
