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?

    5 years worth of progress

    I found this website back in July of 2007 when I first started lifting. I asked for help, shut my mouth, and listen to the advice I was given. In 10 days it will be 5 years since I've joined.

    I was bored after work tonight and decided to put together a time line. Each year I've taken 1 picture, same pose/position (yes it's a terrible pose).

    **It starts bottom left then moves right. Top row goes right to left, too.

    #1: 2007, 135-140
    #2: 2008: 150s
    #3: 2009: 160s (low end)
    #4: 2010: 175-180
    #5: 2010 (end of): 185
    #6: 2011: 193
    #7: 2012: 188

    2010 to 2012s weight gain was in the legs. For 3 months in 2011 (Nov,Dev,Jan) I didn't go to the gym, lost all motivation and dropped to 180. Started back in March and up to 185-188 again. Next goal is 200!

    H: 5'7" W:185
    Goals: 495 -315 -585
