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?

    Gained 16 lbs.

    I gained 16 lbs. over the Summer on the Ultimate Muscle Mass Training Program and supplementing with 1-ad (3 separate 2 week cycles). Has anyone else tried UMM? I was skeptical but it just worked great. I'm sure the 1-ad helped a lot too.

    I've been training for about 4 years--I have a very slight build at 5' 10" and 162 lbs when I started. Now I'm up to 178 lbs. I know that's no much for some of you, but I couldn't be more thrilled. I used the ErgoPharm 1-ad and bought the Ultimate Muscle Mass Program from Amazon. Good stuff.

    The Program said that the average person who stayed motivated would gain between 10-20 lbs in the 12 weeks so my goal was really to give it my best shot and hope I would get some results that were within that range. Well I did. Considering that I had gained maybe a total of 5 pounds in the previous 6 months before this Summer, I'm very satisfied.

    As far as moving on from here, I'm really not interested in being huge or anything like that. I'd like to eventually work up to the mid 180s while keeping the bodyfat in check.

    Nice work. What is the general idea, rep range, etc of the program? *too lazy to go and find it himself* although I guess other people could benefit from more info as well.

    I would venture to say the 1-ad was the primary cause of the weight gain and the program a far second.

    I actually think it was a combo of the program and the 1-ad. My buddy ken did the program with me but not the 1-ad, he doesn't want to use any prohormones. He gained almost 10 lbs, 9 to be exact and I think that if he followed the nutrition guidelines even closer he would have gained more. He hasn't been training as long as I have so some of the gains may have to do with that.

    With the program you basically cycle calories and workout intensity (sets, reps, pounds, etc.). The outlines of the weeks vary, but on average you train for about 4 days a week for about an hour not including warming up and cardio if you do it. One of the reasons I liked the program was that you're always doing something different in the gym.

    With the 1-ad, there's no question my muscles felt fuller and tighter. And strength was increasing consistently (probably a combo of the progressive program and the 1-ad). I did have a few side-effects: I was very tired and lethargic while on the 1-ad. Sex drive was down a bit but came back pretty quick once I cycled off. A bit of acne on my shoulders and back--nothing too crazy. Some shrinkage in the testicles--bounced back within a week of cycling off.

    All in all, 16 lbs in 12 weeks (virtually all of it lean muscle) it was well worth the effort of following the training program as precisely as I could and dealing with a few annoying 1-ad side-effects.
