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?

    Newbie! Need help please!

    OK here's the deal. I'm 15 1/2. I've worked out on and off since last February 2003 when I joined strength & conditioning at school. I was definitely the weakest in the class. I made average gains. I stopped for a while and then went on and off during the summer. I then started back up in August 2003 doing just bench. I noticed unusual gains. I maxed out, and did reps, every day and found myself, to my surprise, adding 5 pounds for max every couple days, sometimes every day. I don't think this is normal, but I'm not an experienced lifter so I don't know. I did that for about 2 months and then stopped again. I made it up to about 160 pounds for max in that time. Well my chest had gotten pretty defined and increased in size and my arms had gotten veinier. I didnt notice much arm increase, if any. I'm pretty skinny I guess, but when I flex, my biceps "lump" sorta large. I want to know how to get big arms this time for the summer 2004 to look good at the pool. I also need to know when and how much and stuff I should have the protien shake. Also what I did wrong and all that. I hope you all can help me out with this stuff. Also all I have at home is free weight and a squat/bench combo. No machines except for an upper and lower pulley. Thanks very much. Here is a workout I may try: http://www.askmen.com/sports/bodybui...tness_tip.html

    Come back, ask questions
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
    "You're wrong, and I have a completely irrelevant pubmed abstract that may or may not say so." - Belial
