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 dunno, but during a good bulk session, depending on your current stats, expect to put about 2-4 inches on your pant size. I have a 32" waist now, and during a bulk I'll usually end up at about a 34" or a little higher (I wear 36" and it's slightly loose) before I cut back down.
    If you're not lifting hard, you're taking up space.

    It varies widely.

    Don't worry about it, and just worry about your particular goals.
    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

    i am currently 6'2 220lbs with a 38" waist and there is about 1/2-1 layer of fat on my right now. i have a big midsection in general (genetics) so i dont think i will ever get down to a 34. a 36 is possible but i dont think its likely. i just wanted a good estimate on a waist size because thats the only discouraging factor when i bulk. especially when i sit down and bulges

    I started this bulk at 170 with a 32-33 inch waist. I was wearing 36 pants and they were pretty loose. I am not 185-187 with a 34-34.5 inch waist and my size 36 jeans are getting tight. I am bulking up to 200 and then cutting down to a lean 180.

    LOL I doubt Teufulhund will think of himself as a wrestler.

    That aside, he's likely in the 34-36" range at the moment and I know he wants it smaller.
