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?

    gaining weight / loose skin appearance

    Hey all,

    I just started taking weight gain seriously about 3 months ago. Since then I've put on roughly ten pounds and definitely noticed a difference in muscle mass (thanks in a huge part to this forum).

    Here's my problem. While I AM gaining muscle mass, I can also tell that I'm gaining fat. My skin looks loose and fatty around my pecs and stomach (it was tight before, although I was very skinny). In general I feel like I look good, but this issue really bothers me.

    Right now I do heavy lifting 3 times a week with no cardio (I was under the impression that cardio would inhibit heavy weight gain). Would cardio help tighten my skin up? Is there a way to gain a lot and still look tight and fit while gaining?

    Thanks a lot for any help, you guys have been great.

    You can start adding cardio, which may slow muscle gain somewhat; or, you can continue bulking and then cut later. Either one should work.

    Cool, thanks guys. I can't post any pics due to lack of equipment, but I'll try adding some cardio and see how that works. Already this week I've been running about 30 min a day and I feel like I can see a bit of a difference although it's a bit early to tell. Thanks again!
