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?

    Skinny but average weight?

    I've been looking around a lot of the online BMI and weight analysis calculators and all of them say I fall in the average weight category for my age/sex/height etc. One of them said I'm within a few pounds of my ideal weight. The weird thing is, I have always looked very skinny. I'm not weak skinny, I can lift weights heavier than my average-build friends but nevertheless I still look skinny. So how is this possible?

    One other thing I'm wondering is if I am an average weight, should I only be thinking about bulking myself up with freeweights rather than just trying to fatten myself up?

    Don't rely on those 'things'

    It'll vary from person to person.

    I'm considered overweight for my height I think.

    Dont worry about it, before I started my bulking cycle I weighed 5-10lbs less then my friends but I could lift more on most exercises (i was almost all muscle, i had very low body fat). If you want to gain weight, make sure you gain it as lean mass by working out and eating right.
