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?

    How many more cals should I eat?

    I went to the first day of soccer for this season today and I forgot how much running around it was. To kick it off we ran 2 miles then took about a 5 minute brake and the for another 2.5 hours just constant soccer playing and skill working (basically running around). I have to decide tonite whether or not I'm still going to play. I find it hard to get just enough cals for my heavy bulk so far and by the end of practice I wasn't even hungry (I don't know why) so I don't know if it would be possible for me to make up for those cals and stay on a bulk.
    I'm currently consuming about 3500 daily. And I figure that all of that burns a very very bare minimum of 1500. Oh yeah, practice is 5 days a week.

    Here is the formula I use for all my dieting etc. Take your body weight multiply it by 12, and you have the number of calories you need to maintain that weight. If you want to gain, take the weight you want to get to, multiply by twelved, and that is the number you need to get to that weight, for losing, jsut the opposite! Good Lcuk
    Second place is just a generic term your mom created to make you not feel bad about losing, because second place is actually first loser!

    TurboStu are u sure this works?

    coz currently im 136, want to get up to 155, and if i multiply that by 12 i get 1860 calories..which seems too low, and im eating more than this anyway.

    do u add this value to your maintenance calories?

    I say don't waste your time with math. Pick a number, try it. It either works or it doesn't, if it doesn't pick another number from there.
    Btw I decided not to play soccer so I could pursue BB'ing further

    For me it does work, almost perfectly. The maintainance calories for me are needed to maintain my weight. And it also flucuates greatly on exercise, metabolism, there are a lto of "x" facotrs in it.

    Id say if you want to "heavy bulk" do it properly and just eat everything in sight. (decent foods mind).

    I'm trying to put back on the 30lbs I lost in the past year and I'm planning to go between 5500 - 6000 kcals a day.
    half the time I have no idea what you're talking about. the other half, I'm not listening.
