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?

    So... for how long should I bulk? I was thinking that a month and a half of clean(er) eating and more intense training should yield some good gain judging on how I trained and ate during the past month anda half (high volume, 1800 or so cals. Hey, I didnt know any better.) and I was still able to put two inches on around my chest. I wanted to know how long bulks and cuts should last, if I'm not planning on competing any time soon. Remember I wanted to put on 15-20 lbs in 5 months, but I dont want to have to buy special "fat pants". Needless to remind you all, but I used to be a pretty fat bastige, and my body stores fat fairly readily, so two months of this bulking stuff and I wont be able to see my toes.

    You bulk up,up to the point you consider.No one can advice you to bulk for a month or two.. It's up to you.If you can't stand fat gain you could do shorter cycles.

    Yeah, it's pretty much up to you. I am going to bulk until I feel I NEED to cut. I probably will only cut if I want to compete in PL and I need to make a certain weight, other than that I won't cut until I hit at least 180. You heard it here. If you ever see me make a post about cutting and it isn't for that reason, let me have it!

    Ok, I was mainly wondering if it screwed up your metabolism if you switch between bulking and cutting too often. I will probably start cutting once I hit 155 lbs or so. Hopefully most of that gain will be muscle now that I'm eating clean
