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?

    Transitioning from cut to bulk; and technical/theoretical bulking

    I've just finished a four week cut, with excellent results -- I'm now precisely at the weight and BF% I hoped -- and so I'm wondering how best to transition from cutting to bulking. Should I set my caloric intake to maintenance levels for a week? Or should I simply jump into the bulk proper? (If it's relevant: I just finished my last refeed today).

    On a more theoretical level, I was wondering how the long-sought "perfect bulk" might look. Assuming, for the sake of argument, an ideal training/rest regimen, what would be the best way, in theory, to bulk cleanly? It seems to me that, with our (possibly rudimentary) knowledge of both the anabolic and catabolic processes -- e.g., how best to diet while minimizing muscle loss -- we should be able to construct a diet that would minimize fat gain while maximizing muscle gain. I'm hoping here that the discussion gets quite technical -- that some of the local gurus might chime in. I recall that ST once mentioned that it is possible, in theory, to gain muscle while losing fat; I'm interested to see how one might go about doing so. And while I realize that this goal is likely impossible to meet in practice, I'd love to hear what others here have to say.

    And, yes, let's assume a natural trainer.
