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?

    Nice strength on the bench. Keep up the good work. Are you cutting or bulking?

    during the summer i bulked from 177lb to 195... saw basically no fat increase from then, so im just gonna get off the weight gainer for now, eat about 200+ of protein a day and see how it goes from there

    im really lookin for the mass of muscle not the weight of fat at the moment, when i look like i can rep that much, then ill know im on the right track

    Must squat.

    Do yourself a favor and do a search for "squats" and "leg day".

    Working legs helps your entire body grow. Especially compound exercises like the squat and deadlift. (Squats work not only the legs but the glutes, back, abs, arms, traps, shoulders, etc etc...)

    did legs today, i think themachine was called plate weighted squat press. never did it before, only been training legs for 2 months did 495 8 times. not bad. worked calfs inthere too.

    i also ate alot today, so if i keep eating like this ill explode in size for sure, just 200 grams of protein a day thats f'in HARD

    Nice strength dude. I hear you on injury from arm-wrestling. I never do that anymore, even though I was the arm-wrestling king at my school. After I took on about 3 different strong guys, my elbow pain was horrible.

    Again, your benching is great, I hope you heal up soon. I like reading through your WO's.
