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?

    Proteins !!!!!!

    I am new in this web site so forgive me if I am doing something wrong.

    I have been lifting weights seriously for 1 year and I have seen some changes however I am very confused about the protein intake.

    I have hear that we should consume 1 g to 1,5 g per body weight. Is this the overall weight with the fat or just the muscle weight, which makes more sence to me since is the muscle that will require the protein to grow.

    I am 6,3 and weight 207 lb with 19%.

    I need some clarification here.

    Thank you

    the general consensus is 1-1.5 grams per lb. bodyweight.
    STATS:
    • 34
    • 5'9"
    • ~185



    The Big 3 (2 sets):
    Flat BB Bench 270
    Deadlift 355 (no belt/straps)
    Squat
    265

    Increase calories slowly and shoot to gain about a pound a week. I think the length of a cut and bulk cycle is up to the individual. I would say that most last longer than a month.

    Thank you guys for all your good advises but I need more help.

    I have been calculating my calorie intake and it looks like this.

    1) Post-workout:
    SkimMilk with EAS powder: Cal 270 / prots 40

    2) Pre-lunch:
    Tuna sandwich: Cal 300 / prots 40

    3) Lunch (rough estimate)
    I watch what I eat: Call 900 / prots 40

    4) Post-lunch:
    SkimMilk and EAS powder: 270 cal / prots 40

    5) Dinner (low carbs here):
    I also watch what I eat: Calls 900 / prots 40

    Total cal per day 2640.
    Total prots per day 200.

    I complement my diet with 5 g of L-glutamine and 5 g of creatine per day.

    I am 6,3 with 207 at 20% (I think - I am not fat but hard to get an accurate bf%).

    I work out Tuesday, Thursday , Saturday and Sunday.

    What do you think if my goal is to gain lean muscle without the fat. I don't care to be extra ripped but I do not want to be fat

    I consider these conflicting goals because whenever trying to bulk you can expext some fat gain. By making small weight increases each week fat gain can be minimized but not eliminated. Just take it slow. Good luck with the bulk.

    Will probably take more than 2600 cals to gain but that would probably be a good starting point. Looks like you could add in some EFA's to your diet, although you don't have what you eat for lunch and dinner listed.

    What about your shoulders? Might try something like this

    Tues-chest and running
    Thurs-legs
    Sat-shoulders/triceps
    Sat-back/bicpes

    Could post this in the training forum as well and see what kind if replies you get. Good luck with the bulk. Keep us updated on your progress, or you could start up a journal.
