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?

    Don't worry about it.

    Get bigger and stronger.
    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

    I has a blog.
    I has a facebook.

    I have a similar problem. I would take Paul's advice and not worry about. Focus on getting bigger and stronger and the muscles will get more solid. Gaining some size has seemed to help me with the firmness issue.

    If you want to explore this further though, perhaps you could post something about your diet, supplements, and routine. Also how have your gains been the last year in terms of size and strength?
