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?

    Here comes the pain

    I wish I had access to a digital camera for pics of what I look like, but ah well, try and scan some in at another time. I'm 17 and a half years old, I'm 150lbs at 5'6''. I've been training seriously for about two and a half years now. Before I lifted, I was around 130-133lbs. I've been as heavy as 155. I've packed on nearly 20lbs of muscle throughout the duration of my stint on weight lifting. I also have been wrestling for 2 years. I wrestled 135 last year and was the biggest 135 pounder in my county. This year I'm hoping to go 140. Loosing weight has been an easy thing for me, so looking leaner is a somewhat easy task for me. I work on a 5 day split, 3 days on, 1 day off, 2 days on, 1 day off. I use no supplements, just raw eating.
