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?

    You need to join a gym or buy equipment.

    Except for the fact that its routines are effectively worthless...

    Have you left school for summer vacation??

    If a gym is an option use it, but if it is not you can still make good progress.

    At 16 and as a scrimp you can experience growth using Pushups/Pull-ups/Sit-ups/Chin Ups/Dips at home. You will outgrow this rather quickly though. I would recommend that you start using Pushups/Dips/Pull-ups/Chins ASAP and as soon as possible invest in some adjustable dumbells a barbell and a flat bench.

    You have the advantage of being a scrimp so you can make gains initially with a routine using body weight exercises. Once you get to the point that you are able to do more than 15 reps of Body weight Pushups/Dips/Chins you will need to be able to work with more resistance.

    Good Luck

    Deano, it took a while for most people to understand that someone on roids has much better recovery capabilities and is generally speaking somewhat of a super human, and that what works for them is extremely counterproductive for the mere average genetics trainee who's not on drugs. Therefore, most of what's on that book doesn't apply to a natural trainee. I think this is why _-_v_-_ said that.

    Thanks, restless. Couldn't have said it better myself.

    Exactly. What "worked" for Arnold, for example, will not, in all likelihood, work for you.

    _Brawn_ or _Beyond Brawn_ would be a much better book for a beginner. You can get them on Amazon, the author is Stuart McRoberts.
