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?

    I put on 10lbs of lean mass in 10 weeks with very little fat gained. There are too many variables, though... Genetics, diet, training routine, etc.

    Without juice, about a year if you're just starting out. Gets harder the bigger you get and the leaner you want to be. You can gain ten pounds of muscle if you are willing to get fat along with it very easily. Very hard to keep those gains when you lose the fat.

    I think you could gain a good 1/week so maybe 3 months to put on 10lbs.

    to many factors...
    what age?
    how many calories?
    what macro/micro breakdown?
    what supps?
    what test level naturally?
    how many years training?
    what workout?

    Well I know I could add 10lbs in 10 weeks for sure, I think most people could, but I don't think those 10lbs would be muscle unfortunately. Bulking up in general is easy, it's limiting the fat gain while bulking up that is difficult.
