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?

    Hi everyone!

    Hows everyone doing today. I've just registered and so i'm just trying to get the hang of working my way around the forum.

    I'm 21 years old. Right now i'm currently working on my new powerlifting routine which i began today. Hopefullt i'll see results by christmas. I weigh 13.5 stone at the moment and i'm looking to bulk up to 17 stone as soon as possible.

    My current stats are:

    Bench Press - 100kg for 2 reps
    Squat - 100kg for 3 reps
    Deadlift - 125kg for 7 reps

    I'm 6 feet tall and looking to gain significantly on these exercises.

    You can tell me what you think of my stats if you want and you can be honest. Maybe even give me some advice. I train 4 times a week - MON, TUES (split), THURS, FRID

    Would appreciate some thought on the above information,

    Robert

    13.5 stone? 17 stone?

    how heavy are the stones?

    bench looks nice, squat and dealift need to be worked on.

    Hey!

    Cheers for the info. I was actually expecting all my lifts to be ****. Hell, 1 out of 3 aint bad in my book.

    Theres 14 pounds in a stone. Thats all i know. I don't know exactly how many kilos are in a stone, maybe maybe 4 or something. 13.5 stone i think is about 80 or 85 kilos roughly. I know for sure that its somewhere about there.

    Thats actually a good question to post. How many kilos are in a stone. The other thing i hate, well, hates a strong word but when people post their best lifts in pounds i don't know what their lifts are in kilos. I only deal with kilogrames when it comes to weights.
