The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    what should i do with my time...

    Hey all, i have 5 months to train in any way i want, with unlimited access to the gym 24/7 (military base) before i leave my current residence.....currently i am 18yrs old, 5'9" tall, 180lbs at around 15-16% BF...my ultimate goal is to be big AND cut, not just skinny ripped....so would you say i should bulk until i leave and then cut when i get to my new place....or should i start cutting now, be done cutting by the time i leave, and start a slow clean bulk when i get to my new residence.....

    also, as far as calories, on a bulk i would eat around 4000, on a cut around 2500...do these numbers sound about right for my stats?...(btw i lift 5 days a week, and on a cut i would add in cardio at least 4-5 days a week as well....)

    I think you should cut. "Short" people look awful when they're bodyfat gets too high and 15-16%BF is about as high as I think you'd ever want to go.

    if u still have to go through bootcamp i think u'd be better off bulking now and then when bootcamp comes around that'll be good for ur cut.. both my bro and cousin lost a lot of fat from bootcamp and maintained a lot of their size..

    69.1" or 5'9.1" is the average male. Stop making sexual references in the Diet Forum.
