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'm probably the worst but I'll post it anyway

    I'm 5'8" and 177lbs @ 21% bodyfat

    1RM bench press- 325lbs
    1RM squat- 275 lbs
    1RM curl- 155lbs

    I have no definition to speak of but I am kinda thick looking

    I'm not keeping my mesurements cause they change so fast, I gain fat really fast, often just by opening the fridge

    5'11", ~217, 8-9% bodyfat (playing it safe), waist 31"

    bench: ~330 x 1
    squat: 405 x 5 (6-7 if I were fresh)
    dead: 470 x 7 (Max single probably only about 500, though)
    I can do pretty good weighted pull-ups too.

    Okay, enough stat masturbation. I hate comparing stats on the net.

    I'm all lat, btw. Everything else pretty much sucks. "trained" in high school for around 3 years, never got anywhere. Wasted a year cutting, then languished at 148 pounds for another half a year (while training). Been training for weight gain for around a year and a half.

    And I've had fewer girls than beercan. Though that's probably because they actually come back.

    I haven't taken many measurements...

    25 years old, 5'11" 245lbs @95%bf (heh, actually i'm pretty damned thick with large bonestructure, nobody has ever guessed me above 220lbs before. I have seen my abs before, I know they exist.)

    I took bicep/calf measurements just cuz someone said they should be around the same number and I was curious. Surprisingly enough they were both exactly 18".

    Size 12.5 shoe

    I haven't tried maxing too often...but I'll list the highest weights...

    Bench: I don't usually bb bench but I've done 245. For DBs I use between 80s and 90s for sets of 6-8.

    Squat: I haven't squatted much in my life but Last time out I did a set of 300lbs but using the smith machine...although still with proper form.

    Deadlift: I haven't deadlifted, but I stiff-leg deadlift. The most i've done is 340lbs for one rep with an injury. The previous set was 6 reps of 310lbs.

    I would not consider myself someone who has trained for more than 3-6 months. Even when I started here I wasn't very consistent. I've owned many gym memberships but they were basically just another shiny card in my wallet.

    I used to play tons of sports and had a great build. At least once a day someone would ask me if I work out and wouldn't believe me when I just said I played sports. Then I left university and got a desk job. The rest is history...

    I have probably had less women than beercan, although I have had his mother on several occaisions if that counts for anything...

    Haven't measured for about a year - quit worrying about it.

    My lifts are in my training log.
    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
