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?

    Bench Problem -.-

    I got back into lifting a few months ago and have put on 30 lbs. I'm 20 years old. My bodyfat is at 10 % and I'm 193. I consume 3650 calories daily spread out between 7 meals starting at 7 in the morning. My protein intake is 375 grams daily with 1.5 gallons of water. I'm using n02, Vitrex, and just started ON OFF cycle as of today. Everything on my body is progressing very well. My chest on the other hand is not. I grow stronger in all chest movements except the bench. I'm currently using 185 X 6 Reps on the bench. I work chest every 4 days. My regimen is 2 warm up sets, 2 work sets to failure, Flyes, Incline Dumbbell Press. I'm deadlifting 415 X 1, curling 115 X 5, Squatting 315 for 10 deep reps, everything is big and good except my chest. For the love of god please help me ............

    Can you give us a better explanation of your chest workout? 185x6 is not enough. Can you only do one set or can you do more, do you do your becnh first etc...

    "Soli Deo Gloria"
    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
    Romans 7:14-25
