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?

    Bulking pics

    Here I am after close to a year of bulking, 193 @ 5'7" ... comments/critique welcomed on anything, especially my posing. I'm pretty tired of bulking, another 7 pounds to go before a small cut cycle



    (I should have opened the left hand on this one..)

    (I don't understand why my lats are so weak from the front, they seem good from the back... might it be my posing or simply be a bf thingy?)

    I'm not gonna post any back pics... but my hams are doing quite well, and my ass could compete against Ronnie COleman.

    you look like a big bull

    good job partner


    I don't know about the front lat spread.. it seems to be the way you pose thats the problem.. some people just seem to have difficulty to do this pose, maybe Ronan or some other competitor could help you. My guess would be that you try to bring your shoulders higher up while inhaling to inflate your torso more.

    WOW! You have put on a lot of size since I first saw your pics on MM.com back in the day. Good job man. I like the monkey pic on the wall too. Arms look big. WTF is up with the draws though? Almost as bad as looking at Ronan's cutoff's. tuttut


    Good luck on your way to 200!!!

    Sinep thats a total 360 from your pics in the barn.
    You look good!!!

    As you learn to pose properly you'll find that your muscles respond better.

    Latman, what excatly would be the proper attire to wear when trying to show as much of your body as possible?

    Really, you like him? His name is Kinky.. jk .. that stupid poster belongs to my roommate , I asked him wtf is up with that.. "I don't know, I just think monkey are cute..." Huh? The Karen McDougal and Pamela Anderson posters on my side are somewhat cuter I find..

    Also thanks for the gentle words everyone... if it weren't me in the picture I'd probably be saying "Hey look, its the pillsbury man in the picture *poke stomach*"

    Looking big bro. Maybe move your hands higher up your waist on your lat spread. That might help bring them out more.
    ...it's more friendly for trainers to say, "yeah, we can help you tone up!" rather than saying, "yeah, we can help you get rid of that fat ass!"

    I should precise that the last picture was when I was half way through my bulk up.. I weighted ~175 with a bodyfat a little lower than now.
