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 hour later- 12 egg whites, 2 whole eggs, bowl of salad. Meal 3- 14oz. chicken breast, vegetables, 1 tbsp. natural peanut butter. Meal 4- 2 cans tuna w/salad+tbsp natural peanut butter. Meal 5- protein bar. Meal 6- carb free protein shake+tbsp flaxseed oil, 5g glut., tsp colostrum.

    What is the question?
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Lose more fat.

    Or you can do a bulk and work them out. I'd say they would show more easily if you strengthen them up and work 'em out.

    I had a similar problem . . . .

    I gradually INCREASED calories, but left the carbs. low. (25%) and increased the intake of good fats. (50%) Protein was about 1 - 1.25g/lb.

    Continued to progress with my lifts like I would with any other day and viola the last little bit of fat around the midsection is just about gone.

    Energy is fine, strength is fine.

    Currently consuming 3,350 calories daily.

    Sounds like there is progress....but it might not hurt to add a thermogenic too.

    Another question, bodyfat going down(slowly) why do I not look hard or full? Take in 400 g protein/day, creatine, glutamine. Suggestions?

    400g protein? That's definetly excessive, how many calories are you cutting on? I'm not positive, but doesn't creatine give you a bloated look? If so perhaps that's why you don't look "hard or full".
