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?

    First pics of me...

    Well, finally got the nerve to post some pics. I am currently cutting, i am 147 right now and 5'8 and im 18, wanting to cut another 5 pounds i think. The first pics are from sometime in may, and the new ones i took before work this morn. I will have more pics later on, when i get out of work. if anyone could estimate my BF thatd be great, because my gym doesnt have any way of doing that and neither do i anyway, let the comments come. oh, i was about 158 in the first pics. sorry about the poor pic quality.

    in the leaner pics you look like about 12-13% maybe. You need to work on bulking. put "heavy" in front of each of these exercises: incline benchpress, decline dumbell press, dips, etc. shoulder presses, pull downs, deadlifts, squats. Do all heavy training 3 sets of 4-8 reps each and only 3-5 different exercises in a day. (dont overtrain)

    I would agree. If it is your first time bulking, I know with me my gut constantly told me to go to cutting, but you could definately stand some more bulk first. 10lbs?
    "...and the monk told me 'I will share with you the three phrases that have been used by our ancestors for generation after generation when motivation was needed.' and he looked at me straight in the eye with a deep solemn look and said:
    'Just f***ing do it.
    Just f***ing do it.
    Just f***ing do it.'"

    If you help my journal, it may help you back!

    Don't cut just, eat clean and lots of protein, good calories if you want to grow.
