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?

    Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty

    Need Advice, please! Chris Mason!

    Hi everybody, i was at navy boot camp for the last 3 months, and i lost like 50 pounds, and i need serious help! i came to this board because i feel like its the best one out there, a lot of smart people here. here are my questions:

    1) please give me a workout plan that i can follow, as short as possible because i dont have a lot of free time, that will allow me to put on muscle. i already know what days i'm going to work what muscles, i just need to know how many sets and reps, please remember that i havent touched a weight in over 3 months!

    here's my split:


    2) also, i have a big problem, we only get 3 meals a day here in the navy, breakfast, lunch, and dinner - so i will have to use protein shakes and weightgainers to supplement my diet. i know a lot of you guys are against supplements but in my case i really need them.
    i am on a real tight budget, and i made a list of supplements that i think i need, but i am not sure - so please tell me if they are worth it or not.

    weight gainer
    protein shake

    which ones do i really need? i would like to spend as little as possible on supplements!
    i'll probably be eating 1 gram of protein per pound, is that enough to put on lean muscle?

    thanks for the advice!!

    When i went threw navy boot camp, I lost alot of weight also aroung 35 pounds. However when I got to florida for school, I ate and ate and ate some more. Even though we ran with the marines I was still able to put on the weight. But not how i wanted to. I had to eat out alot along with going to the galley for breakfast lunch and dinner.galley breakfast mmmmmmmmmmm. All i can say is eat at the galley and supplement with protien shakes and if you are in school in florida man just have some fun.
    I think that you are asking the right person (chris mason) for help with the routine, so i'll let him handle that. And even though i didnt lift weights during my stay (3 months) in florida i stayed in good shape just with the mando PT almost every morning.
